Covid Course Booking Instructions

Please read the below covid course booking instructions that all customers will need to adopt.

Teaching glassmaking involves close contact, heat and sharing of tools. Our workshop and course equipment are Covid compliant and the teacher will be wearing a mask or visor and using antibacterial hand gel and sterilised equipment.

It is therefore difficult to mitigate cross contamination by just wearing a mask and sections of the course may involve students removing their mask and blow through glass making iron equipment so again this is why all students are asked to provide a neg LFT. We follow government guidelines, in addition to our own risk assessment and mitigation procedures. We have been advised to continue with LFT while covid positive cases are still very high.

Please read below.

Please read the below booking instructions and circulate with your group booking.
