A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported this wonderful shop over the past few months and now slowly we can start looking forward to getting back to some kind of normality.
We are happy to announce that as from 1st July,
we will be resuming additional activities at APTC.
Careful consideration was made in conjunction with the
current guidelines on how we, as a business,
can practically ensure everyone can feel confident that they
will be in a safe environment.
Obviously we will all take responsibility to continue the social distancing rules, hygiene will be of paramount importance and if you are feeling unwell the advice is to stay at home.
Together Queenslanders have slowed the spread of COVID-19
by staying at home.
As a result, the Queensland Government will continue to ease restrictions on movement within Queensland.
As you may be aware as from the 12th June, Stage 2 commences which means the restrictions will be lifted to include a gathering of up to 20 people – this number will include any staff on the premises.
Stage 3 starts on the 10th July where there can be gatherings of up to 100 people – subject to review.
All the teachers have been consulted and are happy to resume classes in store from this date. We will provide dates of classes etc in the July calendar which will be posted on Facebook and the Blog in the next couple of weeks.
With regard to the August retreat,
we will be visiting the premises next week to ascertain
the numbers that can be safely accommodated and in particular
assessing the overnight accommodation options.
We will communicate the way forward regarding this in the next few weeks.
With this in mind and to ensure we are adhering to the guidelines,
please may we we ask that for any classes you would like to attend
that you please book in advance and at that point we would take payment to secure your place.
Should numbers exceed the recommended guidelines,
you will be advised and ongoing discussions with the teachers
concerned will enable us to make decisions about holding extra classes
when and if possible.
For all those who have already booked and paid for Melissa Struhs’ classes,
we will be contacting you all over the next few weeks to confirm attendance.
Free Crops will resume on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 3pm and we will have dates for the Saturday crops included in the July calendar.
Thank you for your patience with regard to us making this decision and before you know it, you will be catching up and crafting together………
Warmest wishes to you all and keep an eye out for weekly updates.
