City Arts is fundraising to convert the current building into a gallery space, cafe and workshop.
From June to August, they have initiated a first refurbishment phase of their building that will see the roof of the old chapel re-roofed, insulated and opened up to views of the sky with rooflights.
Their programme of events at City Arts will resume in September with workshops and classes that they are busy organising now, keep an eye on the website! They will do this safely and following closely the government advice with regards to social distancing and precautions to minimise the spread of the virus.
To that effect they have carried out a risk assessment and will implement its resulting measures, reducing attendees numbers, avoiding the sharing of materials and asking participants to bring their own face coverings for times where distancing may be more difficult.
It is a new situation we are all in but we will make the workshops as welcoming as before.
