For these sketching days out, you can choose between coming either in the morning or the afternoon or if you feel you would like to come for the whole day then of course you can. (This is dependent on whether the public conveniences in each location are open!)
To ensure your safety on these days out, I intend to only take a group of six people so we can maintain social distancing and when it’s necessary for me to approach you to view your work, we can just pop a mask on.
For these sketching days it would be ideal if you bring all your own materials.
