Martyn Smith – working in the print room

To comply with government guidance for COVID-19, we have made several changes to how we operate. As a result, our workshops and the way we run courses will look a little different. We have everyone’s safety as our main priority and although it might not be quite the same as it was before, your ability to get stuck in and enjoy a spot of printmaking remains the same. We look forward to welcoming you back to the workshop with added measures to keep you safe including:

Martyn Smith – working in the print room

To comply with government guidance for COVID-19, we have made several changes to how we operate. As a result, our workshops and the way we run courses will look a little different. We have everyone’s safety as our main priority and although it might not be quite the same as it was before, your ability to get stuck in and enjoy a spot of printmaking remains the same. We look forward to welcoming you back to the workshop with added measures to keep you safe including:

  • Hand sanitiser provided for use at the entrance and at various stations throughout the workshop
  • Everyone using the workshop building is required to wear a mask, visor or face covering (unless exempt) 
  • Additional cleaning of all areas of the building, tools and equipment is in place
  • Wherever possible, course participants will be provided with individual small equipment and materials (which will have been quarantined for 72hrs prior to use)
  • Reduced course participant and member numbers in place to allow for social distancing and individual workstations will be provided for all attendees on a course
  • Removal of shared PPE and aprons for course participants and members. Please bring your own apron or dress appropriately. Any PPE required by participants on a course will be individually provided or can be purchased from the WYPW shop. 
 
These additional measures have meant that in order to continue providing a diverse range of printmaking courses safely we have needed to review some course costs. Smaller course participant numbers do mean students will have increased individual support and tuition during sessions.
 
If you have any queries regarding our new procedures or are particularly concerned about any aspect of engaging with us here at the workshop please get in touch either by phone or by e-mailing info@wypw.org and we will do our best to help.
