Coronavirus Statement

BOOK RISK FREE: If you need to cancel your place on any of our courses due to coronavirus you can transfer the full value to join us on another course within 2 years.

Please do not attend at the studios if you have any one of the following symptoms:

New continuous cough, high temperature, loss of taste or smell nor if you have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive within the last 10 days.

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. 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. 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.

Thank you for all your support over the last few months. We have had so many kind messages and many of you have helped us with donations or through rescheduling your courses with us where you can. We are excited to be back in the st We have missed you all and the studios are missing the buzz of your creative energy.

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.
