Coronavirus Statement

KEEPING SAFE: We have implemented various measures in the studio to keep us all safe.

We have reduced the number of students on a course so you will have plenty of space to work, interact with the tutor and your fellow students whilst being socially distanced. We have removed furniture and equipment to make the studios more spacious and we have implemented a very thorough cleaning regime with equipment being quarantined for 72 hours between groups.

In our main studio where 99% of our courses are hosted we have invested in glass screens between students. We are still following the government guidance that in confined spaces people are required to wear a mask. When you first arrive in the morning we will ask you to wear a 2 ply face covering until you are in the studio and seated in your work space when you can remove it. If you have a medical reason for not being able to wear a face covering please get in touch with us before you arrive.
We are committed to being responsive and vigilant. We will continue to regularly monitor advice from Public Health England and the UK government and take the necessary action to help us all stay safe.

And if you can’t make it down to us in St Ives I hope you can join us through our brand new online programme. This includes live webinars, short and longer courses delivered by our amazing team of tutors straight to your home wherever you might be in the world.
