UPDATE 11th APRIL 2021
COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR WORKSHOPS
Re-start from 24th May onwards (Government guidelines permitting)
Dear all (again!)
First and foremost I hope this update finds you all safe and well.
A big thank you for your patience while we see these unusual times through.
I am very happy to open the diary for bookings from 24TH MAY 2021
Workshops will be available for:
Regulars and returnees!
Workshops will be run on: MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS AND FRIDAYS to allow for cleaning on Tues, Thurs and Sat.
(Saturday workshops can be booked if at least 3 weeks notice is given).
I will be giving priority one day per week to Voucher holders and new comers.
New Comers/Voucher Holders
I will only be taking up to 2 people at a time, unless you are all from the same family or are in the same ‘bubble’, then 3 will be the maximum.
Lunch can be provided, although it will need to be taken in the studio or if weather permits outside.
If you would prefer to bring a packed lunch, just let me know when we finalise your workshop date.

I will only be taking up to 2 people at a time, unless you are all from the same family or are in the same ‘bubble’, then 3 will be the maximum. I will work in the second room, away from the main studio.
I will be able to give advice, but will not be able to help out as closely as you will have been used to.
GUIDELINES FOR ALL
Face masks/Visors are to be worn inline with government guidelines (I have spares if needed)
You will be working virtually back to back at either end of the benches.
As is the general rule - frequent handwashing or hand sanitising is key, so please feel free to do so whenever you wish.
I have a loo outside which is heated and with a sink, so you will not have to go into the house.
I will leave wipes and spray inside for you to wipe down surfaces on leaving.
Whenever possible I will leave the studio door or studio windows open to let the air circulate.
I will put out a set of equipment on each workstation along with gloves, hand sanitiser and anti bac wipes.
For regulars and returnees please bring as many of your own tools as possible including tea towels. My equipment is still available to use so don’t worry if you do not have any or have forgotten something. If you would like to buy a set of tools, please let me know and I can get them ready for your next visit.
When you have finished your session, please leave all glass on the bench for me to clean, along with any tools that are borrowed from the shelves.
On choosing a large sheet of glass from the racks, you may want to clean it before use. Wearing gloves is a good idea of course, but please be aware they can snag on sharp edges.
As mentioned above, glass that was used and left over from previous students will have been cleaned before returning to the racks after 24-48 hrs.
Grinders and Kilns
I will be taking one grinder away, so you will have sole use of one grinder each.
Likewise, depending on the size of pieces or quantity of pieces you wish to make, you can have the sole use of one kiln only. Any glass that does not fit in your allotted kiln please leave at the back of the bench and as I’ve done for you all before I will transfer it/them into the kiln for you – you can trust me!
I am happy to provide tea, coffee and biscuits as usual (please bring a mug) but if you prefer, bring a flask or you can make your own in the kitchen area.
Again, as the rules state, please wipe down surfaces and kettles for yours and others safety.
If I have forgotten anything or you have any questions, please let me know either by phone, text, email etc.
In this new weird world that is emerging we all need an outlet to relax and have fun
I am so looking forward to meeting you all and getting creative again.
With kind regards,
See you soon!
