Coronavirus Update

I am taking the spread of the Coronavirus and the impact it may have on my students at Creative Art Courses very seriously. I am committed to  following the advice and recommendations from the Government, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation.  I tend to err on the side of caution when making decisions based on the latest government guidelines.

Thank you

A huge thank you to NHS and emergency staff, and all key workers
who continue to put themselves at risk and work hard to keep us safe.

All Courses +Classes

  • Update 22 February 2021
    • Following Boris’s announcement today, we look forward to re-opening the studio for face-to-face courses and classes from his target date of 12 April 2021.  We accept the government cannot guarantee this date, but hope the relaxation of the lockdown rules goes successfully.  We long to be back!
