To all of our artists, supporters and friends of Kite Studios,
This has been a strange and frightening time for us all. With the current advice being that we should practice social distancing and stay at home at all costs we have temporarily suspended classes and from today have closed the studio.
We know that you have booked classes until the end of term and we appreciate that this isn’t how any of us envisioned the term ending. We’re hoping that many of you will come back when we resume as normal, and are offering these cancelled classes as studio credit towards your future courses at Kite Studios and are working on online alternatives now. We have started with our Art Explore course which is proving popular.
If you are interested in online alternatives we’d love to hear from you so please get in touch . Being entirely truthful, as a small community business we would love for you to keep your credits if you can, but we understand that it is a very difficult time for a number of people at the moment, so if you need to request a refund we will of course honour that.
It’s hard at the moment but we believe in the power of creativity to shine a light in dark times. As such we are working on ways to keep the Kite Studios ethos, teaching and spirit going regardless of where you are.
We will begin to deliver unique online classes for children.
We appreciate all of your kindness and warm messages of support at this time. We sincerely look forward to welcoming you all back in the near future once things have settled and urge all of you to stay safe, stay positive and stay creative.
Auriol Herford and the Kite Studios Team
