Covid-19:- New Ways of Working

Craft Cottage Courses - Covid-19 Guidelines/Risk Assessment

New Ways of Working

I'm hoping to make your experience on my course enjoyable & pleasurable, but at the same time as safe as possible

So……I will be taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of students attending my courses and myself, for personal health reasons (& also because my courses take place at my home)

I will be adhering to the following procedures while running my courses from my home, to prevent the spread of COVID-19:-

  • I’ll do a Covid-test the day before running one of my courses.
  • Wear a visor, whenever possible
  • Clean/Disinfect frequently touched surfaces prior to the course, and again at lunchtime
  • Wash/Sanitise my hands before and during the course
  • Maintain a safe distance wherever possible
  • Doors and windows will remain open at regular intervals during the course to ensure an adequate airflow through the workshop - but I will have the central heating & woodburner on throughout the day, as required (so bring some extra layers!)
  • Accommodate no more than 3 students on a course to ensure adequate physical distancing.
  • Each student will have their own workstation allowing for 1m+ social distancing.
  • Provide sanitisers in various locations within the premises, especially where equipment is shared – and there will be full handwashing facilities in the bathroom.

I would appreciate it if students could:-

  • Wear some form of face covering during the course (such as a visor – which I’m happy to provide)                               
  • And, if possible, do a home covid-test (ie. Lateral Flow Test) the day before attending my course
  • Respect each other’s space, especially when using communal areas by maintaining a safe distance from others wherever possible.
  • Use hand sanitiser before entering the building, prior to using shared equipment and when entering communal areas.
  • And to regularly wash your hand during the course.


1)     Full refund if the course has to be cancelled due to any Government Covid-Restrictions

2)    The day before your course date, you will be sent a Covid-Health Declaration Form, asking you to agree to the above statements. Students will only be accepted on a course once I receive this form (no later than the evening before your course date)

Thank you Anna for a lovely craft day teaching us the very basics of glass cutting, & assembling simple shapes to form a small window handing sun catcher.
