Studio Update 7 November 2020

A studio staff member has tested positive for Covid-19 this morning and we’re awaiting results from a second studio staff member later today.

As our staff will be self-isolating for the next two weeks, the studio will be closed and will not be reopened until a full deep clean process has been undertaken. 

We will be in touch to advise on a reopening date. Please take care in the meantime, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best wishes

Studio re-opening for experienced printmakers at first. 

We are delighted to announce that the Print Studio at Castle Mills has been open to Studio Members since Tuesday 1 September 2020. The building will continue to be closed to the public but we are delighted to have welcomed back our members, first!

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.
