FAQs

How are you keeping the Darkrooms Covid safe?

We have done extensive Risk Assessments prior to re-opening the Darkrooms and have reduced workshop numbers to half our capacity to ensure social distancing. Tutors will wear face visors and workshop participants are asked to wear masks; please bring your own. Gloves, soap, hand sanitiser and wipes are available at the Darkrooms. Surfaces and equipment are cleaned before and after every session, and we are working to improve ventilation. Kettle, mugs, tea and coffee have been removed from the Darkrooms, so please feel free to bring your own refreshments.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Participants should be aged 16 and over

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking at St Pauls Learning Centre is limited, however, you can park on quiet streets nearby free of charge after 5pm. There are regular bus services along Stokes Croft, a short walk away, and the No.5 goes along nearby City Rd through St Pauls.

What should I bring with me to the sessions?
