Like many of us, those of us at The Artroom are concerned about the coronavirus situation. We want everyone to feel confident that they can come to The Artroom, and to be creative in as safe an environment as possible. 

 

This is a constantly developing event and, no doubt, responses to the situation will change. However, at the moment, The Artroom will follow the Government and NHS directives and will be ensuring everything that is possible to make The Artroom COVID-secure. Outlined below are the measures that The Artroom is taking. 

To ensure correct social distancing guidance is followed The Artroom will have the lay out in the diagram below.   Things to note are:
  • clients will enter/exit by the main entrance and move to/from their seat only by moving from the 'safe pathway' (marked on the ground)
  • clients will be asked to wait outside The Artroom until the previous client is seated. 
  • there are 3 client tables available. This will mean that 3 individuals from 3 separate households could be accommodated, or up to 6 individuals in 3 groups of 2, assuming the groups of 2 were from the same household 'bubble'
  • The course tutor will use a moveable chair and table. Should any client wish to use the toilet facility the course tutor will move to the office area to let them pass, moving the obstruction of the table and chair
  • clients will be asked to sanitise their hands on arrival
  • Each table will have a 'belongings box', for clients personal belongings (coat, handbag, drink etc)
  • Each table will have a 'sanitation box' consisting of hand sanitiser, tissues, bin liner, sanitising wipes, disposable gloves
  • both the belongings box and the sanitation box will be sanitised before each session
  • all materials needed for that session will already be on the table and will have been sanitised 

In addition The Artroom we will be:

  • Asking if all those who come to The Artroom would bring their own art overall and refreshment should they wish. (bottled water will be available should a client need - this should be sanitised by the client using the wipes in the sanitation box). Although not needed clients are more than welcome to bring and wear face coverings

  • Sanitising all the worktables before the start of each class

  • Sanitising all the door handles, tap handles, toilet and chair tops before the start of each session

  • displaying posters and reminders of the government's guidance to ensure a COVID-secure environment

  • should the weather permit, ensuring as much ventilation as possible

How to Pay

 

The more preferable way to pay is using cheque (payable to The Artroom) or bank transfer (sort code: 60-83-71 account number: 37430570)  These methods will ensure that charges are not paid by the Artroom.

You can also pay at The Artroom on the day with contactless card. For any of these methods of payment, at the online checkout, please apply the code ‘payontheday.

 

No cash will be taken.

You can also pay on line using credit card or PayPal when you book.

If you cannot get the online booking service to work for you, you may also book by sending The Artroom an email outlining the courses and events.

 

 If you are not certain you want to attend a course, please do not book as places are limited. If you find that you cannot attend due to the coronavirus outbreak, please notify The Artroom before the class. Please ONLY use email for this (the-artroom@hotmail.com)

 

If, unfortunately, the venue of the class has been shut down due to Coronavirus, you will be contacted before the class. The class will be cancelled, and there will (unlike previous arrangements) be no compensation, even if the class is cancelled at less than 24 hours’ notice. 

 

It is hoped that The Artroom can remain the centre of creativity that it has been for over five years and continue to bring pleasure and enjoyment to all who visit, even in these tricky times.
