⭐⭐⭐ Nearly time to reopen our doors to you lovely bunch! ⭐⭐⭐
Remember it’s still just the same at Doodle Alley 🥳 but obviously we’ve gone that extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable and safe during your visit.
Please take some time to read below and feel free to ask any questions if unsure 🤔!
Please adhere to the government guidelines (ever changing) when booking. It is impossible for us to police what groups should and shouldn’t be social distancing etc – pls help us by only grouping together if allowed, and speak to us about special measures.
For this reason we will currently not be holding parties.
BOOKING ONLY ⚠️
Most importantly we ask that you BOOK to paint in, PRE-ORDER a takeaway or let us know when you are coming for collection so we can make it contactless for you.
ENTRANCE & EXIT ↔️
We have a one way system running from the side door eventually exiting through the main double doors. We have signs and taped areas to guide you through the shop and remember we are always on hand for assistance. Each group will be asked to wait at a clearly designated area before asked to enter the main studio. Each start time will be stilted to ensure we dont get crowded.
ONE WAY SYSTEM 🙏
Please keep within our (very) wonky lines throughout the studio – following our one way system. There are very jazzy purple lines to keep within and directional arrows to lead the way.
HAND SANITISING 👐
We have 3 stations and request that you use these on the way in and out. Inbetween is also encouraged.
Doodle Alley will look somewhat different but it will feel the same! We no longer have a desIgnated gift shop section and our full shop has been transformed into distanced seating over 2 metres apart.
TABLE SERVICE 🛍
It will be a table service and we ask that you remain seated throughout where possible. If you think this will be tricky for little ones it may be more suitable for a take home pack.
Doodle Alley will be cleaned before and after closing and between each table sitting. Communal areas will also be disinfected regularly. We ask that you stay at your table for no longer than 1hr 30 to allow us to thoroughly clean between customers. All equipment and paints on each table will be disinfected and refreshed per visit.
TOILET USE 🚽🚻🧻
Currently our toilets will be out of use except for emergencies. We do ask in these scenarios you clean the space before and after with disinfectant provided. Please then let a member of staff know who will follow on with an additional clean.
FOOD & DRINK 🥛🍵🥖
We will not be selling food or drink and are happy for you to bring your own. Although bins are provided and emptied regularly we will ask that you take litter home where possible to again limit any contamination.
HAND AND FOOT PRINTING 👣👐
We will currently not offer close contact support but we will be there with full advice and guidance (at a distance) on how to get the perfect print!
HIGH CHAIRS 💺
Still very much available and cleaned regularly. For additional cleanliness we ask that you disinfect before and after use with the cleaning products provided.
Our building is huge and we have been advised the best form of attack to is keep it ventilated. Please wear an extra jumper if it’s looking cooler as we will be having doors and windows wide open throughout the day at all times.
Our sponges, stamps and accessories are unfortunately out of use at this time. You may bring your own if required.
Please do not touch the pottery until you have decided which to purchase our full range is available on facebook to have a good gander before you come.
We promise you’ll still have loads of fun in what will become the new norm! We know it all sounds hard to get your head around but we promise you will enjoy your time just as much and forget all about the pressures we are all under once you get that paint brush going again!
