Glass Classes

Covid-19 Studio Policy.

During Covid times I have changed student capacity in my studio to four from six so everyone has more space.

Covid-19 Studio Policy.

I have also hung clear Covid screens between work stations which I can adapt for one to one tuition, have a hand cleaning station by the entrance door, and in the studio, marked out the floor for reminder of social distancing, clean toilets each day, wear face masks, set up rules for everyone's safety, no communal refreshments bring your own. If there is a break for lunch on your course the students have to all go out of the building for the hour long break.

The students on my Summer Masterclass in August all said they felt safe and happy with the arrangements.
