It is a worrying time for us all. I thought it would be good to keep you informed about workshops due to the current pandemic we all are facing.
At the moment I do not have any requests for cancellation and I won’t be cancelling any workshops for the time being. However if you are unwell, please follow the government guidelines and please do not attend the workshop and let me know so that I can offer you alternative dates for June/July onwards.
My Studio which is based at the BBox Studios is following ALL government guidelines and we are watching any updates for further guidance. At the moment it is BUSINESS AS USUAL. My workshops are small gatherings and although it seems that the government will pass legislation with regards to mass events, I feel if all attendees are vigilant about their health I will be able to deliver the already booked workshops as usual.
You can still shop from my website and deliveries will be as fast as it can be in these circumstances.
If you are planning to attend one of the events I will be at, please check my events page to see whether the event is going ahead or not.
In the unfortunate event that I end up developing symptoms, I will have to self-isolate and I will update all workshop attendees if this happens.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Keep safe and thank you for support.
Please support your local shops, artists and makers in these difficult times
I am not the most romantic person but when I finished these special textured wedding 👰 🎩 bands I felt all warm inside! 💙Must be the Valentines Day’s!
They are now on their way to Edinburgh to get date mark and hallmark. All there is to it to give them a final polish before they been picked up!
And if you are wondering, I got the permission from the lovely couple to post the image.
