Covid-19 and Creative Workshops


These are the steps we are undertaking to make the spaces safe for you and the steps we ask you to take if attending or delivering a workshop. 

We want you to enjoy, learn and engage and hope these guidelines help you do that! 

We are lucky to work in large open spaces with plenty of ventilation which is a good start. 


  • Do not attend a workshop if you are feeling unwell, if anyone in your household is feeling unwell or you are in quarantine or shielding. 
  • Follow instructions given to you by your tutor. Many tutors have their own Covid-19 guidelines and we ask that you read these. 
  • Where practical keep a safe distance from other workshop attendees unless they happen to be from the same household 
  • Bring only essential personal belongings and either keep them with you at all times or put in the box provided 
  • Wear a face mask unless you are exempt
  • Please bring your own lunch 
  • Sunny Bank Mills will provide tea/coffee and disposable cups. 

Sunny Bank Mills will:  

  • Provide hand sanitisers at entry and exit points 
  • Provide disinfectant wipes/anti-bacterial spray for common equipment 
  • Stock a supply of visors (for workshops we are running)  
  • Provide plastic lidded boxes for your personal belongings 
  • Keep workshop numbers at a level that ensures social distancing is possible (6-8 maximum) 
  • Clean surfaces and commonly touched equipment between workshops 
  • Ensure toilets and facilities are regularly cleaned and have sufficient supplies of soap and tissues 
  • Ensure the workshop tutor has undertaken a risk assessment for their workshop
