Studio update: covid-19

We have welcomed back a limited number of members and are now hosting a limited number of classes. 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, conducting risk assessments, spacing out equipment to ensure social distancing is maintained, putting in screens where needed, reducing the numbers of makers in the studios (members and those on classes), installing hand sanitising dispensers, 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 (links to these below)

Membership: There is currently limited access to some of our studios. We are in the process of a gradual reopening for a limited number of members in our Bellenden Rd and Copeland Park studios. 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 and for the time being we are not welcoming any new members.

Classes and courses: Everyone who has had a class or course postponed has been contacted and we are in the process of rescheduling these or providing refunds. 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.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us:
