During any easing out of lockdown, I will only take 2 students from the same bubble per course. I will only resume having 3 students if this fits with government and (more importantly) scientific  advice.
If Coronavirus transmission rates goes up, I will have to postpone the course or reduce the class size. In that case I will reschedule your booking, or refund your payment in full, as you wish.

Student safety remains of upmost importance to me: Scientific advice on Safe Distancing, precautionary practices and cleaning routines will be adhered to throughout my workshops. Bottles of hand sanitiser are given to each student on arrival, and students are provided with, and required to wear, filtered facemasks and surgical gloves during group demonstrations.
