Workshop Update:

From 19th July 2021, restrictions will ease in England.

I want to ensure going forward that anyone coming along to a workshop I deliver continues to feel safe and happy whilst enjoying their time to be creative.

With this in mind:

I will continue to wear my face mask when teaching.

Although not mandatory, participants are welcome to keep wearing their masks.

 

Hand sanitiser will still be available to use.

You are still welcome to leave your details for NHS Track and Trace should you wish.

Please do continue to respect people’s personal space.

Please do not attend if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or have been in contact with someone with Covid-19.

Thank you so much for the workshop you gave yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt that I had achieved something. Your expertise and manner both helped me to feel at ease in a world that I would not normally find myself in, so thank you. A great day.

Christmas workshops are always hugely popular each year.

You might like to join in a workshop taking place at different venues across Yorkshire or have your own private workshop with friends or family. These can either be in person or kits can be posted out with the workshop taking place over Zoom.

I have also delivered several corporate Christmas workshops for businesses across the UK. If you think a craft workshop might be a fun way to join together as a team this year, then please do get in touch to discuss further.
