Our Courses are back!

We’re pleased to announce that our Courses will be back up and running at the end of July 2020, and we can't wait to see you! With your safety in mind, we have made a few changes to our Courses and would like to make you aware of these before you make a booking.

Important: if you or anyone in your household has a high temperature or a new and continuous cough, even if it’s mild, you should stay at home. If you are feeling unwell, we would appreciate it if you could postpone visiting us until you are feeling better.

Course Availability
For your safety, a maximum of 3 students will be able to attend a Course at any one time. If a Course is fully booked, please click here for all upcoming course dates. Please note, course dates may change or be postponed if Government advice alters.

Hand Sanitiser
A hand sanitising gel will be provided for you to use upon arrival and during the Course. It is crucial that you use this gel to protect yourself and others around you. If you wear gloves to visit us, you must sanitise them on entry please.

Social Distancing
Our team are practising social distancing and we would appreciate it if you could too. Markers have been laid down around the store and in the Course area to help you and others stay 2 metres apart wherever possible. We ask that you please be mindful of others and if you have to pass someone, please do so carefully and pass them back-to-back, facing away from them. 

Face Coverings & Gloves
As a precaution, we politely ask that you bring a face covering and gloves with you to a Course. For peace of mind, we can offer a basic face covering and gloves, free of charge; one set for the morning and another set to wear after lunch. We also have a limited number of visors available for purchase if these would make you feel more comfortable.

Although it is unlikely that COVID-19 can be transmitted through food or food packaging, as a precaution, we will not be providing lunch or refreshments on the Courses until further notice. No hot drinks will be provided but unlimited bottled water will be available.

Card and Contactless Payments Only
If you secure your place with a deposit, the remaining amount will be due on the day of the Course. Please be aware that we are currently not accepting any cash payments. This is to protect your safety and the well-being of our team. Course and product purchases must be paid for using your card or a contactless payment.
