Finally, lockdown is slowing down. Have you been out to a cafe, pub or restaurant yet? It’s all been a bit strange; but I think we’re all ready to get back out there, in one way or another.
A creative activity is a great way to relax and forget about the worries and pressure of the last few months. Lose yourself in the moment during a glass taster session. Be absorbed while you get to make something beautiful for your home, or to give as a gift. Taster sessions are easy going; no need to worry about learning to cut glass – just enjoy experimenting with colour and light.
What Will The Studio Be Doing?
This next week or two, I will be working hard at the studio to get it all clean and tidied and set up so we can receive visitors and students again. I may, or may not have bought a transit van load of hand-sanitiser and paper towels. We’ve got a new handwashing heater for the ‘smallest’ room, and I will be setting up two cleaning stations. One for when people first arrive and for regular hand-washing in the bathroom just off the communal area.
I will space classes out so I have time to clean down before and after. I will be limiting to half capacity, and only offering taster sessions, so we’re not cooped up all day. Only people within their own social groups – no mixed classes for the time being.
It’s not practical to clean down all the individual small pieces of glass. I am not sure if cleaner residue will affect the finish anyway, but I have a steam cleaner. If steam sterilising is good enough for operating theatres, it will do me! So another measure in place will be me steaming down all the glass as well.
When Will We Start Back?
Still working on the finer details, but we’re looking at beginning of August onwards, I won’t be offering any specific dates as all classes will be treated as private bookings. You get to choose your day and time, all very flexible. Are you itching to come along but aren’t 100% sure of a date that you and your friends/ family can do? Why not use the class voucher option? That way, you’re not going to feel rushed to book your session.
