The Scottish Government has provided an update that from 12 March it is now possible for four adults from two households to meet socially for social and recreational purposes. This means that we are now in a position to re-start the Switch to Manual and Night Photography Workshops. This will be on the basis that any attendees can travel within the Scottish Government travel restrictions (at the moment this means that you will need to live in the City of Edinburgh Council area) and that there is only one household on the workshop. For example, I could run the workshop with three other people from the same household.
The easing of restrictions, announced by the First Minister, currently means that will keep Level 4 restrictions in place until at least 26 April. This means that we are unable to run the Landscape and Seascape Workshop and Private Workshops until after this date. We are still able to offer virtual workshop sessions in the usual way. All our Gift Vouchers have had expiry dates removed so you will be able to use them when it is safe to do so.
The First Minister has suggested that there may be changes to the Levels system identified in the COVID-19 Scotland’s Strategic Framework document. However, until these changes have been announced our policy to meet the areas that impact the running of an Edinburgh Photography Workshop session under the old rules are detailed below. We have approached this by identifying the four areas of the Framework document that relate to our workshops. We have then provided a response as to how we intend to meet the framework guidance. We then summarise how the running of each workshop will be impacted at each of the five levels.
There are further announcements still to be made by the Scottish Government so it is best to sign-up to the Edinburgh Photography Newsletter to be kept informed of future changes.
