At the moment, adults over 60 and children below six can’t enter the premises, and those children aged six to 12 will have to be accompanied by an adult.

Staff and clients must wear a mask at all times and hands must be sanitised when entering and leaving the studio. Temperatures will also be checked prior to entering the premises.

Still staying indoors? Every Wednesday at 5pm on TheJamJar Instagram account, there are live tutorials where creatives have the opportunity to work on a project at the same time as the instructors. If you have questions, the instructor will answer them as they create their work of art.
