Events

We're extremely excited to be able to hold events again and welcome you back to the studio.  We've had to make some changes to ensure we can operate safely and within current guidelines, but we're still trying to keep things as fun and enjoyable as possible.

All events must be booked onto in advance so that we can ensure we do not exceed the maximum number of participants, and can make attendees aware of our Covid guidelines in advance of the event.

Please book at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment

If you've booked onto an event, you will receive our Covid guidelines 24 hours before it is due to start. These guidelines will be tailored to your event. Please ensure that you have read them thoroughly and understand them before arriving for your event. 

We understand that there will be occasions where you can no longer attend an event you've booked for due to Covid. Let us know ASAP and we may be able to conduct the workshop with you remotely, sending you a kit with the materials you need. If this isn't an option, we will offer a refund. 

Please let us know at the earliest opportunity if you, or the person you are booking for, have any access requirements.
