Course News – Covid 19 Update No 8 – STOP PRESS – 10 Feb 21

It had been hoped to resume courses at Woodborough in March but this is no longer possible so we are developing on-line tutorials to enable students to undergo training for the C&G’s Level 1 Bookbinding Course  (Unit 118). This course is normally 5 days in length held from a Monday to Friday but is being split into two modules. Part 1 will now be two days and Part 2 three days.

For details of the new dates and timings for the courses in March 2021 visit the Events page at https://wiltshirebarn.co.uk/events-info/training-courses/

For further information or to bid for a place on any of the courses contact the Courses Administrator at [email protected]

Course News – Covid 19 Update No 7 – STOP PRESS – 13 JAN 21

This is an amendment to Update No 6.

Only courses in January and February 2021 have been cancelled.

We sincerely hope that we will be able to restart courses in March 2021 but we will have to abide by the government’s guidance in the light of the progress of the Covid-19 pandemic. If it proves not possible to resume courses face-to-face in March we will investigate other options.

Further updates will be given via the Newsletters sent to all subscribers and through this News section of the BBV website.

We sincerely hope that we will be able to restart courses in April 2021 but we will have to abide by the government’s guidance in the light of the progress of the Covid-19 pandemic.
