Phased Studio Re-Opening
The Oxford Weaving Studio will be practicing a phased return to business beginning June 15th.
RE-STOCKING: From June 15th, we are excited to announce that the studio will be open to staff and we will be performing a stock take to ascertain our summer stock levels. This is exciting news as we will be replenishing all our online stock of Yarn Starter Packs, Frame Looms & Tools, various Weaving Kits and introducing some new products so that you can continue to purchase these products online and weave from home.
CLICK & COLLECT: Although we have made the decision not to allow the public to visit the studio during this time, it may be possible for us to operate a 'Click and Collect' service for local customers in the near future. We will announce this service if and when it becomes available. You will be able to book your collection time here using our simple booking system.
IN-STUDIO WORKSHOPS FROM AUGUST: We also realise that our in-studio workshops are by far our most popular product. However given the current social-distancing rules, we have made the decision to only resume our workshops in August, giving the greatest possibility of restrictions being eased further by the Government through the summer months and to avoid numerous booking cancellations if they are not. We will be adding new workshop dates to the calendar here in due course.
WORKSHOPS VIA ZOOM AND IN PARKS: We have been looking at various ways to offer workshops from the comfort of your own home or in public spaces to maintain social distancing. These might be in the form of a Zoom workshop or a regular 'after school' program for children where we post all materials in advance, or a small gathering in a local parks where we can safely offer a variety of workshops in the open air to allow for social distancing.

WEAVING VIDEOS: Finally, for those of you keen to refresh some of your weaving skills or learn new ones, we have slowing been building a series of weaving videos for you to learn at your leisure. These can be found on our new YouTube channel here.
We will continue to update all our customers on our studio opening plans. Please subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to find out what we have in store!
