Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update

We are slowly starting to get back to our new normal. We hope the information below will help you to still access our services and goods and support us through these tricky times.

Current Situation 

Sales of Wool, craft kits, JumpingCLAY kits and other supplies

We are selling these online not through a shop or website but through people emailing us, messaging us through social media or calling us up. These can be delivered on foot, collected from the studio at an allocated time slot or posted at cost via royal mail tracked second class delivery.

UPDATE - you can now arrange a time to come to purchase items in person and choose colours of wool in person etc. Please contact us to book a time slot.

We are still not allowing pop in sales visits as it prevents us from limiting the umber of people in the building at any one time.

In Person Teaching

We have restarted some adult classes and are arranging sessions to complete started courses under strict and appropriate social distancing measures. This does involve reduced class sizes in most cases to keep people safe. We are only running one in person session at the studio at any one time to avoid cross over in corridors and toilets.

We have restarted 1:1 tuition in person sessions in most areas, please get in touch to arrange your session.

 

Virtual Group Teaching

We are currently teaching a limited range of workshops and courses online for all ages via Zoom that can be accessed on your phone, tablet or computer. These are bookable through the website and some require you to provide materials and equipment and some involve us delivering kits to you prior to the session. All sessions are fully interactive allowing you to ask questions, communicate with other attendees and show your creations and get feedback. All our taught sessions are for a maximum of 12 people and some work on much smaller group sizes depending on the difficulty of the session. These now include after school clubs for children too!

Virtual 1:1 Teaching

We are offering a range of 1:1 tuition in a range of arts and crafts in shorter sessions of 30 minutes at the reduced rate of £10. Multiple sessions can be booked at one time or booked one at a time as you go to suit your needs.

Virtual Kids’ Parties

We are developing our offering of virtual kids parties to cover both arty and crafty areas including JumpingCLAY. Please check out our party page and get in touch for more information. For parties where we provide the materials they will be delivered to the birthday child’s home for distribution by them to the party goers in a safe way.

Virtual Woolly Wednesdays

We have temporarily cancelled evening woolly Wednesdays but we are running morning woolly Wednesdays from 10.30am – 12.30pm each week on Zoom and these sessions are free to attend and you can make a donation should you wish towards our costs and please contact us directly for information on how to do this.

Virtual Book Club

We are excited to be running our book club again virtually and more information can be found here.

Going Forward

Currently we are currently looking into how to safely run our socials in person while limiting the number attending and managing social distancing.

Children’s parties in person are unlikely to restart until after October half term at the earliest and more likely next year.

Children’s sessions in person we had hoped to restart in October Half Term, but due to recent changes have decided to put this on hold it is likely now that there will not be any until February Half Term.

We are hoping to reopen  fully inJanuary 2021. Obviously things are constantly changing and we may revise our plans in light of this as time goes on.

Thank you for your time. Stay safe, Karen
