While most legal restrictions have been lifted in England, and many people have been vaccinated, it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19 even if you are fully vaccinated. With this in mind, we continue to retain some measures to keep staff and participants safe. 

We endeavour to 

  1. Encourage good hygiene including hand washing or hand sanitiser 

  2. Maintain appropriate cleaning regimes, using standard products such as detergents

  3. Keep workshop spaces well ventilated

  4. Allow social distancing during the workshop by either increasing the space used or limiting the number of participants. Face masks are not legally required but participants may prefer to do so.

  5. Follow public health advice on testing, self-isolation and managing confirmed cases of COVID-19 with respect to staff and volunteers.

In order to keep each other safe, please do not attend a workshop if you have symptoms of COVID-19 even if they are mild. These include a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste. If you are uncertain, you can do a lateral flow test. 

As the situation progresses, we will continue to follow government and local guidelines should they change. For further government guidance, see
