Covid-19:- New Ways of Working

Below are the measures I have put in place to ensure our safety.


  • The workshop space, equipment & resources  will be thoroughly cleaned before students arrive (and at various intervals during the day) - paying special attention to frequently touched areas such as door handles, light switches, chair arms, table tops and any shared equipment.
  • There will be full handwashing facilities in the bathroom which I’ll also disinfect just prior to each break.
  • I’ll need all students to vacate the workshop during the lunch break, for 30 minutes, enabling me to thoroughly covid-clean key areas (as detailed above)


  • I’ve moved the workshop into my larger living room which allows for 1m+ social distancing (for up to 3 students) and the garden room (& maybe the kitchen) will be used for all the resources you may need during the course.
  • Each student will have their own workstation allowing for 1m+ social distancing.
  • I will keep my distance from students unless you’re happy for me to move closer. (If this happens, I will try to maintain side-to-side contact, rather than face to face). Also, closer contact should be for less than 15 mins.
  • Demonstration will be done at a distance & I’ll be wearing a visor
  • The doors and windows will remain open during this course to ensure regular airflow.


  • All students will have to sanitise their hands as they arrive - before touching anything!
  • At the entrance to each room hand sanitiser will be available. You’ll need to use this when you enter and leave the room.
  • At each student’s workstation, they will have their own sanitsied equipment, personal sanitiser & dustbin.
  • When sharing is necessary, everyone will be asked to wash or sanitise their hands before touching shared items (hand sanitizer will be provided at these points)


  • All  students will need to wear a face covering - this can be a mask, scarf or a visor (I can provide a visor).
  • I’ll wear a visor so you can see my mouth when talking (otherwise I’ll wear a face mask).
  • Disposable gloves will be made available (however, I do recommend hand washing/sanitising)



  • Normally I provide a selection of hot drinks (plus cake and biscuits), but to minimise touching the same items, you’ll need bring your own refreshments.


  • Again, to minimise touching the same items, I will have to reduce the number of design templates & reference books normally available for students’ use.


  • You should not attend if you, or someone you have been on contact with, has symptoms of Coronavirus (I can offer you a voucher for another course)
  • If you become ill with COVID-19, within 2 weeks of attending a class, please notify me.
  • Do not attend a course if you have travelled from an area with outbreaks in the last 2 weeks
