Workshops and classes taught by Linda in the Studio at 68b Church Street, Garstang. As we learn to live with the effects of the pandemic, I value your consideration for myself and others who may be in a similar situation. Having a suppressed immune system due to my RA medication, I continually observe my medical team’s advice whilst itching to return to teaching my classes. So we have put in place the following guidelines, thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Changes we have made

  • Studio class sizes will be limited to 4 students, to ensure social distancing can be maintained.
  • Please do not attend if you have any covid symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who tests positive. Call us on 01995 603363.
