Here in the workshop the studio team have been working on operational logistics that will enable members come to the workshop with confidence. The outcome of our planning is a more spacious configuration of the studio and 9 well-spaced, bookable Work Stations that offer flexibility for different processes. Our priority in this planning is the health and wellbeing of our members. With this in mind, we have created a much more structured environment that we hope will be both a pleasurable and inspiring space to work in.
New protocols in place to help members work productively and safely include: individual use of the booked work stations and equipment; inks, materials and other studio ephemera issued to members individually; technicians providing additional services, such as exposing and cleaning screens, to manage safe access to equipment that is usually shared; cleaning and sanitising protocols; and additional cleaning time for the technicians at the end of the day.
A full risk assessment detailing the changes can be found here. This is however new territory and there may well be adjustments that we need to make as we move forward. Should you have any particular concerns or need more information before you plan to use the workshop please do get in touch by telephone and speak with one of the studio team.
