Health-aware Statement

Our core purpose is to nurture your creativity. 
Ensuring you feel safe in a low-risk environment is fundamental to this.

We are determined to play our part in providing a low-risk HEALTH-aware environment for everyone – and to reduce the spread of COVID, Flu, Norovirus, and other transmissible infections.

I am committed to following any advice and recommendations from the Government, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation. Risk assessments and procedures are regularly reviewed and updated as required to ensure we meet or exceed any criteria laid out by government. 

Excellent Covid measures in place. Thanks for all the preparation.” Lucy D

We have put a lot of time and thought into our HEALTH-aware procedures and continue to re-think and adapt them to ensure they remain relevant and up to date.

  • Please feel free to offer suggestions and observations that may help us continue to offer a safe, low risk environment within the Gallery Studio and around Hope Mill.

Queries or concerns

  • I have and will continue to correspond with all my students to ensure they remain updated to changing circumstances.
  • However, please bare in mind, that Covid-19 has given me a massive increase in admin tasks which may result in me not being able to retain the high standards I usually keep.
  • I would greatly appreciate it if students could actively do their part in supporting me – keep up to date by revisiting this website page,  and email me with any queries, concerns or reminders.

Thank you for your continuing to support Creative Art Courses. I look forward to continuing to be the art studio of your choice for creative inspiration and learning.

Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. I’m always happy to help.

Kind regards
