covid-19 classroom measures

Mask Maker

We are very excited to be opening our doors again following the easing of lockdown. We are putting in place a selection of measures to ensure that we can all operate safely and continue to have a relaxing and enjoyable time. Please read the following information carefully so that you know what you expect and some of the changes that we have had to make. 

All students attending a workshop/session are asked to confirm the following:

  1. I have not had a cough, fever or loss of taste in the last 14 days.

  2. Where tiers exist, I do not live in a tier higher than where Sew in Kent is located.

  3.  I have not returned from abroad in the last 14 days. (This is not applicable if you are returning  from ‘travel corridor’ countries with whom we have no self isolation requirement – please visit  the Government website to check.)

  4. I have not been in contact with/do not live with anyone with Covid-19 or with similar symptoms.

  5.  I am happy to bring a face covering and wear it when moving around the room or when talking to a tutor about my work.

  6. I have read and accepted the measures on reducing the risk of transmission of Covid-19 as laid out on on this page

Only students prebooked on workshops/sessions will be admitted to the studio. You MUST BOOK in advance if you wish to attend a session.

  • Everyone is asked to sanitise their hands after entering/re-entering the studio. Hand sanitiser is freely available throughout the studio. We also ask you to regularly sanitise your hands after contact with any communal items such as the irons, studio toilet facilities etc.

  • All students will have their own workspace and will be socially distanced by at least1m. You are encouraged to remain at your workspace as much as possible and ask the tutor to bring things to you. You can of course use the ironing table but please be mindful of others when you do.

  • We will be regularly sanitising all tools, workspaces and communal areas. Please leave any borrowed items on your table when you leave so that we know to clean them.

  • Although face coverings are not mandatory we kindly ask that you bring a face covering in and wear them during demonstrations or when tutors and students need to work more closely.

  • Please note that sessions will need to finish promptly in order to ensure that the space can be sanitised ready for any subsequent sessions.
