Safe practices with Covid19

Face masks/coverings will be required at all times in the workshop until further notice.  Masks and visors, along with workshop suitable PPE will be provided.

Hand washing facilities as well as hand sanitiser are provided

A triage system is in operation.  If you have symptoms within 2 weeks before or after your lesson, you must endeavor to get in touch with Test and Protect and me so I can limit any potential spread in conjunction to Test and Protect

My lessons grow in popularity every year with several of my previous students eager to get back to hammering hot, glowing steel!

Lessons are one-to-one meaning you get the most from the experience, in addition, this means that I can tailor the lesson to your learning style as the course progresses.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding this for your booking, please get in touch.
