COVID-19 WORKSHOP UPDATE III

 

26 March 2020

 

****

 

To all my participants

 

I am saddened to advise that all workshops are now postponed due to the Government’s  restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Workshops are postponed until we receive advice from the government that it’s safe to recommence.  

 

As these workshops have been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances and due to restrictions from the government, unfortunately I cannot provide a refund to each participant. I can, however, provide one of the following remedies:

 

  • In-person Workshop Credit - Receive a credit to a future workshop (once the Government advises small events can proceed safely, I will be booking new dates); or

  • Online-Workshop Credit - Join me for an online workshop – One-on-one or a live streamed Youtube workshop; or

  • Online-Workshop Credit - If you are self-isolating at home with your family, we can arrange an online workshop for all of you to participate at the same time; or

  • Online-Workshop Credit - Private online workshops can be arranged for friends and family to watch remotely

 

I understand some people may find this unfair. But please remember, nothing about this whole situation is fair right now. My small business I worked extremely hard for (and very passionate about) is now defunct for the next couple of months (best case scenario), and as a result, I will need assistance from the Government like so many thousands of other struggling Australians.  

 

Correspondence

 

It has been an extremely disappointing, frustrating and stressful past couple of weeks. Over this difficult time, I have also received a large amount of social media messages, phone calls, emails, and text messages from concerned participants.  Any communication should be directed solely to my email workshops@freeinspiritcreative.com and please remember to be civil and kind.   

 

Booking an Online Workshop

 

If you would like to book an online one-on-one workshop, please visit my website and navigate to the bottom of the list and select the workshop “For participants of postponed in-person workshops only”  https://www.freeinspiritcreative.com/online-fluid-art-workshops.

 

In terms of supplies you will need for these online workshops, unfortunately it is not viable for me to send supplies out to each and every participant, particularly as the locations of my workshops are spread out significantly, the additional costs of shipping (due to the weight of the supplies) and trying to self-isolate as much as possible. However, to try and make up for not being able to provide supplies, I can increase the amount of time of the workshop and provide a list of the basic supplies you’ll need to source (preferably on-line to avoid crowds). This is not a perfect solution and it hasn’t been easy trying to work out measures to help participants. I have spent a great deal of time trying to figure out solutions. This is an unprecedented situation. I will try and help where I possibly can.

  

Don’t forget though, if you do not want to do an online workshop, you can join me at an in-person workshop once we are given the all-clear.

 

I hope this pandemic is over as soon as possible and we can all get back to normal. I sincerely hope every person and their family stays healthy, and I hope to see you in the near future.

 

Kind regards

 

Karen
