Covid measures

  • Everyone will have their own drill and will, at maximum, share other optional tools with one other person with sanitising wipes available
  • Please bring your own mug or cup. We will provide, tea bags, instant coffee, hot and cold water
  • Hand sanitiser and wipes will be available at each table


We cannot provide refunds within 10 days of the event. Buying DIY materials requires plenty of pre-planning and the cost of materials increases with short notice. For this reason, we buy all materials at the 10 day mark and charge an additional fee for tickets purchased within 10 days of the event to account for this risk.
