Live Workshops 2020 

New regulations for live classes and workshops:  

  1.  Please wait outside the venue until 5 minutes before class, queuing at a safe distance and being mindful of those exiting the building.  I will come and let you know when the room has been sanistised and ready for you.  There should be hand gel available on entry.
  2. Classes and workshops are limited in number so all have to be pre-booked to ensure a place. This means that the Monday and Tuesday evening classes all have to be individually booked, as well as Saturday workshops.  I have to have a list per class of contact details for Track and Trace
