Covid-19 Pandemic Guidelines

Taking Part in a Pottery Workshop at Fancy Frog Pottery

**Update 18/7/21**

As you are most likely all aware the rules around Covid safety are changing from the 19th July. After careful thought, we have decided to remove some of the restrictions we had previously followed:

From the 19th of July:

* You are welcome to wear a face mask during a workshop if you wish to, but we will not insist that you do so. We will wear a mask for very close contact times e.g. when helping you to centre the clay on the wheel, but will remove it when standing back as find teaching in a mask uncomfortable, impersonal and difficult for those who rely on lip reading. We have both been fully vaccinated.

(We want you to feel comfortable, so if you would prefer that we wear a mask for the duration of the session, please ask and we will do this.)

* We will no longer insist on maintaining a 1m+ distance from other participants, as we have a small teaching space and doing this is not a viable option for us.

*We will keep the Test and Trace QR code and paper method of signing in should people choose to use it, but we will not be insisting on this.

*We ask that as previously, you do not enter if anyone in your household is currently displaying or has displayed Coronavirus symptoms in the last 10 days, or has been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.

*We will continue to use the industrial (slightly noisy) ventilation system to maintain good air flow.

*We will continue to regularly clean the studio and the equipment after use and sanitise the loo after each workshop.

Everyone's health and happiness is of great importance to us, so we will keep reviewing our covid operating guidelines but for now, feel that these steps are appropriate.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back into the studio and seeing the smiles.

Thank you,

Louisa and Tim
