Welcome to Watershed Studio
Cornavirus Update - We will be closed now from Thursday 5th November until we are allowed to reopen and we do hope to be able to hold our Christmas Wreath workshops in December. However, whilst we are taking bookings we are NOT taking any payments until we know the full situation - After that we are now looking foward to reopening with a FULL PROGRAMME in March 2021!!! For that click here!
This autumn we have adapted the studio and improved our outdoor facilities to make us Covid Secure. We have reduced the numbers of people attending every course to ensure we can keep 2m between tables and carried out full risk assessments. We are so fortunate to be out in the countryside and the building is airy and well ventilated. We have also introduced other controls and changed how we serve meals and refreshments to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed whilst you are here. It's different but it's still a great experience!
We will continue to follow the news and keep up with guidelines as they change - please do feel free to get in touch if you would like to know what further measures we are putting in place.
