The end of the year is fast approaching with Saturday the 11th of December being the last day to access the studios. If you have work or equipment stored in the studios, you must clear them out before we start our end of year clean up. This includes drawers and lockers, pigeon holes in the screen studio, and print club drawers. All materials left by members will be disposed of to allow staff to adequately clean the studio and prepare for 2022. Please contact the studio managers (Alex firstname.lastname@example.org or Max email@example.com) if there are any issues.
Keep an eye out for an email from the studio managers- they will be contacting members with items in the studios in the next week or so.
