Coronavirus safety measures
Staying safe in class during Covid-19 Hi everyone! Hope you're all keeping well. In line with the latest goverment guidance we have put some measures together in a way that feels the safest in order to avoid tranmission of Covid-19. Please read about this below. New! We are now serving complimentary tea, coffees, squash, herb teas and water in classes again : ) Page updated 28th July 2021 Sew In Brighton Covid-19 Classroom Safety Measures in place currently: Distancing: We aim to ensure a minumim of 1m social distancing between student workstations. The very nature of sewing means you need space and each person will have their own table (measuring at least 1m by 60cm). If you would like a greater degree of distancing from other students than the default, please speak to your teacher on arrival and we can seat you somewhere with more space or a desk screen. Please don't be worried about asking, we totally understand and you can even email us here beforehand to request this if you prefer. Currently we book a maximum of 9 students per class, with many classes having just 5 students maximum. Please do not hesitate to contact us here if you would like more info about any aspect of a class or workshop you are wanting to book/booked onto Face coverings: Face coverings are now optional. If you would prefer a face covering to be worn by your teacher when they are close to you please let them know at the start of the class (teachers will bring one with them) Movement: To reduce the amount of movement around the class, students should ask the teacher to bring them items needed where possible Sanitising hands: Hand sanitiser will remain available on all tables and at the door on entry - please continue to use it Tools: Students are welcome to to bring their own scissors, pins, tape measure, chalk, unpicker, grader ruler etc if they have them and would feel more comfortable using their own equipment. We also have equipment that can be used which will be sanitised after each class.
