Making Art4Space Safe
Here are the key things that we are doing to make Art4Space Covid-secure based on guidelines from the government.

  • We have decreased capacity to 50% our pre-Covid capacity. Tables and working areas are spaced out.
  • We have fewer classes and workshops and longer turnaround times between services.
  • Doors will be kept open for maximum air circulation.
  • We will be doing tests/ checks on all our staff.
  • We are taking details for track and trace.
  • Face coverings are mandatory in the studio and communal areas, though not if your workshop is in the garden.
  • We will sanitise all touch points, handles and equipment continuously throughout the day.
  • Studios will be rigorously cleaned and disinfected daily.

Access to our art centre
We want to make our studio as accessible as possible for any disabilities. Please email jewels@art4space.co.uk if you need wheelchair access as this is possible at our community art centre.

Accessibility statement for Art4Space
This accessibility statement applies to www.art4space.co.uk.

This website is run by Art4Space. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Carbon footprint statement
Art4Space are committed to keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum. To achieve this, we advocate environmental awareness through the groups we work with as well as taking part in the Local Scrap Scheme. Our kiln is energy efficient and all materials are recycled to minimise waste wherever possible. We also aim to support local businesses and encourage localised volunteering.
