Studio update: covid-19
National Lockdown update: Our Peckham Levels studio is closed and ALL classes in all our studios are postponed, classes will only go ahead in tiers 1-3. Please do not come to collect work from Peckham Levels. We will be contacting members in our our studios and those enrolled in classes via email with regards to rescheduling classes / drop-ins / refunds. (updated 4th Jan 2021)
Courses: In tiers 1-3 we are able to host a limited number of classes with reduced numbers in a Covid-Secure environment. Everyone who signed up or had classes rescheduled due to the recent November lockdown has been contacted directly via email – everyone affected has been offered rescheduled classes or a refund. We are no longer taking bookings for taster classes.
Membership: A very limited number of members will be able to use their studio as a place of work, adhering to Covid-safe H&S measures in place.
If you have any questions please email: email@example.com
Below is more information about our safety procedures, how we gradually reopened and how we plan to manage the studios after the current lockdown:
We have welcomed back a limited number of members and have started hosting courses. The safety of all our users and staff is our top priority and we have recently redesigned our studios and implemented new H&S measures to keep everyone as safe as possible. These include; increasing ventilation, ensuring face coverings are worn in the studios at all times, spacing out equipment to ensure social distancing is maintained, putting in screens where needed, reducing the numbers of makers in the studios (both members and those on classes), installing hand sanitising dispensers, conducting regular risk assessments, introducing new cleaning / clay reclaim systems and we encourage everyone to wash their hands regularly – which is common practice in pottery studios anyway! We have also made safety videos which need to be watched before coming to the studio, to help everyone understand the new systems (links to these below)
Membership: We have reopened our studios for a limited number of members and are continuing to stagger restart dates. We have made a number of changes to the studios and introduced new procedures for the safety of all users. Here’s our health & safety video. All current members have been emailed with more information.
Classes and courses: Everyone who had a class or course postponed due to lockdown 1 or 2 has been contacted and we are in the process of rescheduling or providing refunds (as we ran no classes during lockdowns). If you book a future course we would like to reassure you that in the event of another lockdown we would offer rescheduled classes, alternative studio access or a refund. To get an idea of what steps users will need to take when coming for a class please watch this short H&S video.
Collection of work: For those who have made work on a course and would like to collect – please contact us beforehand as there are some health & safety procedures that you need to be made aware of before coming to a studio.
