We are delighted to announce that will soon be able to open the print studio again.
In line with Government dates we will reopen on Tuesday 27th April at 10am
Studio hours during April and May will be Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm
At first our studio hours and Covid restrictions will be the same as before Christmas, notably we will first be opening for experienced members who are able to work unassisted in the studio at this stage. We will still be using our new booking system which will be available from Monday 12 April.
The building will continue to be closed to the public at first but more positive noises from The Scottish Government on relaxation of Covid restrictions means that things are currently looking more likely for us to be able to open up the studio for less experienced users and starting inductions/refreshers and courses as we approach the summer. As soon as we are able to offer have more concrete dates, these will be shared online and through our newsletters.
Things are a little different from the normal we knew pre-pandemic, but we hope to be able to offer a relaxed and safe working environment for our members and staff. Below you will find a summary of our new guidelines for safely visiting and using the studio.
Experienced Printmakers only: At this stage, to minimise contact between staff and members and safeguard health measures we must ask that only experienced printmakers who are able to operate independently and with minimal staff assistance use the studio at this stage.
