COVID-19 UPDATE AND OUR COURSES
We're opening from the 5th June!
Due to the new road map we are planning to re-start courses from June following Government Guidelines.
We intend to ensure all participants WILL get into the forge to do their course, and expiry dates are extended for those currently with vouchers. Anyone with a previous voucher from 2019/2020 will be contacted by email with a link and details of how to book first.
If you have a voucher and do not receive an email after May 17th please let us know - we are aware some vouchers from a year ago are sometimes the buyers email rather than participant.
Please bare with us as we are a small local business without a large admin team, and we appreciate how patient you have been.
We look forward to having you in the forge soon!
What we've changed for 2020/2021 (these will be reviewed as we go through the Road Map easing):
We will be asking people to fill a simple medical form (part of normal procedure) which will cover our required information to collect for track and tracing.
Hand sanitising stations on arrival, and to use during the day.
The forge is a large space inside, and we'll have doors open to give maximum airflow.
Forges are spaced out, and group sizes lowered.
We're asking participants to bring lunch and drinks as usual, but if you would like to bring a hot drink please bring a flask. Extra water can be available.
One person at a time is allowed in the toilet, and we will be cleaning regularly.
Marked floor to help show distancing.
Tutors will be wearing a face covering to teach.
Participants are welcome to wear a mask or visor, however given the physical nature of the courses especially the Introduction and Axe making courses, we are not making this compulsory as we want to ensure you are comfortable.
Tools such as hammers will be sanitized before each course and after. As a majority of participants use one hammer all day, they can be used without gloves.
Aprons will be one per person for the whole day. Between courses they will be quarantined for 72 hours, and sprayed to sanitize. Safety glasses will be cleaned before and after each course.
We've conducted a specific Risk Assessment, and shared it within our team.
We want to ensure that all our participants feel safe and happy to attend our courses.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU HAVE HAD ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS WITHIN 7 DAYS
Thank you again for your support and patience at this strange time!
We look forward to having you in the forge soon, and any other queries please just ask.
