Keeping safe during Covid

The Little Art Shop’s plan for keeping safe during the Covid-19 pandemic
Updated May 2021

  • Only members of each art group will be in the studio during session time.

  • When entering, leaving or moving around the studio we will be mindful of other people and socially distance.

  • Please do not arrive at the studio more than five minutes before your session is due to start.

  • We will sanitize our hands each time we enter the studio. Sanitizer will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own.

  • Face masks must be worn at all times in the studio.

  • Surfaces within the studio will be sanitised regularly.

  • The biscuit tin is now back in action (yay!) and you are welcome to bring drinks.

  • Aprons are no longer provided so please bring your own or wear play clothes.

  • We will leave the studio should we need to remove our face coverings. The door will be opened on occasions to allow fresh air to enter the studio. Please be aware that this might mean there will be cold air circulating at times so you might wish to bring additional layers when the weather is colder.

  • By attending a session you are agreeing that you do not have any Covid-19 symptoms or have knowingly been in contact with someone who has Covid-19.

  • Anyone who develops symptoms of Covid-19 during the session, or within 14 days after the session, or tests positive within 14 days must inform the studio. A register of attendance will be kept so if a group member develops symptoms/tests positive everyone who has been in contact with them can be informed.

  • The studio will close if the Garden Centre or our local area enters lockdown. Course fees will be refunded in the event of lockdown.

  • We shall continue to be creative and enjoy our groups in the face of any adversity.

  • Guidelines may be revised as scientific and government information and guidance develops.
