COURSES

COVID-19 UPDATE:

We shall be running courses again from the spring of 2022. Like last year, we will put up the large marquee and adopt various other covid-safe strategies to ensure our students and tutors are safe and comfortable while at the studio. A more detailed outline of our covid-19 strategy can be found here.

We looking forward to welcoming you back!
