Special Measures under Covid-19

We are very sorry that we had to cancel a number of our classes in line with Government guidelines during lockdown and thank everyone for their patience and support.  We have tried to re-schedule these classes where possible in this summer programme, but will be re-booking slot for those that we can't reschedule into similar months in next years programme.  

If you are Self-shielding:  If you have booked onto a course at any time this year and are high risk and feel you need to be cautious for longer than most,  we’re are more than happy to postpone your place for a future course up to the end of 2021.   Please get in touch ASAP and we will release your place and send you a Cowshed Creative voucher to be used to book any course later in this year or next year.  


We are delighted to be re-opening on 25 August and are confident that this is a sensible delay, to ensure risk to you and tutors is low.   We have discussed re-opening and special measures with all our tutors and they are happy to return to delivering our workshops.
