Creative Humber is a community arts initiative by Thread and Press CIC and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

The project aims to:

  • Reduce feelings of isolation and promote creativity to support mental health in adults and children across the Kingston-upon-Hull area.

  • Provide opportunity to use creativity as a tool to help participants to engage and connect

  • To inspire and encourage participation in the arts

The project will consist of 36 sessions for adults and children to run across the Hull area and online (Hull Local Authority residents can attend any one session or those living on the East Riding border who live within a 5 km radius of the venue of a session can attend). Each session is only £1 and all materials and equipment are provided, as well a live tuition and support from our qualified teachers. The project will run from June to November 2021. Please note, we want this project to be available to as many people as possible. Therefore we are limiting bookings to only one of our 36 sessions initially per person. Please do not book additional £1 courses or the same individual as these will be refunded (less the booking fee) However, we will update listings within 7 days of the event to allow additional bookings if places remain/become available. We do allow one adult and two children to book per household. 

We can't wait to meet you.

Terms and Conditions

PLEASE READ PRIOR TO BOOKING

Places for this project CREATIVE HUMBER are only available to those who reside in the Hull Local Authority area, or those who live in a 5 km radius of the course venue.  (Hull Local Authority residents can attend any one session or those living on the East Riding border who live within a 5 km radius of the venue of a session can attend) We ask you to provide an address and/or home postcode at the time of booking. Failure to provide accurate information will result in a place being withdrawn. All courses cost £1 (this includes the Eventbrite booking fee). Please note, we want this project to be available to as many people as possible. Therefore we are limiting bookings to only one of our 36 sessions initially per person. We allow a maximum of one adult and two children initially from the same household to attend one of our £1 events. However, we will update listings within 7 days of the event to allow additional bookings if places remain/become available. Please do not book onto other £1 courses as these will be refunded (less the booking fee).

If you book a place, you are confirming that you have every intention to attend the course. Places are limited and if you do not attend, the place is restricted from use by another. However, we fully appreciate that circumstances can change. If you cannot attend an online or in-person session please let us know at the earliest opportunity so we can offer the place elsewhere. PLEASE ONLY BOOK A PLACE IF YOU AGREE TO COMMIT TO ATTENDING TO YOUR BEST KNOWLEDGE. 

Bookings are taken on a first-come-first served basis. If places are filled, we do not offer a formal waiting list, but we will release information via our newsletter if places become available. Once places become available, you may email us at threadandpress@gmail.com to book. As places are very limited, bookings are limited to up to two children and one adult per household, and initially no more than one session per person, unless cancellation places become available, but we reserve the right to offer these to people who have not booked a place on another course.

We use Eventbrite for all bookings for this project. Due ot the low cost of these course, the majority of your £1 cost is absorbed into a booking fee. We therefore do not offer full refunds. A refund is equivalent to approximately 33% of the fee paid per person. If you are unable to attend, please do let us know as soon as possible so that we can reallocate your place. These sessions are a wonderful opportunity and we want to make sure as many people can access them as possible. Failure to attend results in a place spare that could have been used elsewhere. If you are unable to use a debit card, credit card or Paypal and you wish to book, please email us at threadandpress@gmail.com.

We will email you at least 24 hours prior to the session to check attendance. 

Images used to describe courses are for illustration purposes only and may not reflect the exact outcome produced.

If you have a disability that may affect  use of machinery or equipment, please do email us prior to booking so we can establish the best way to accommodate your needs. 

 

If you want further places for additional family members, please sign up to our newsletter as this will provide information on places as they become available.  We reserve the right to offer priority to people whose household quota has not been fulfilled.  We request that you provide the ages of all child participants to enable us to provide age-appropriate resources. Age limits apply to some sessions for health and safety reasons.  If we receive bookings for more than the above stated maximum number of people per household, or those who do not meet age restrictions, we reserve the right to cancel additional bookings and will refund as per the amount stated above.  

Tickets are not transferable in name. If you cannot attend please notify us at threadandpress@gmail.com and we will re-allocate your place. We can only offer a refund up to 7 days prior to the event. This refund will be minus any booking fee. Booking fees are not refundable. 

Online classes will require access to an internet connection and Zoom. We will provide a Zoom code by email to all participants at least 48 hours prior to the course start date. We cannot repeat any sessions in the event of a failed internet connection or issues beyond the control of Thread and Press CIC. 

In-person sessions will only run subject to guidance at the time of the session. We will always notify you within 24 hours of the start date of a course if the course cannot run. We reserve the right to change venues or dates if necessary and we will always advise you of this prior to the course start date. 

We request that all bookings fill in the booking forms in full. If you do not submit the information required we may be unable to send you a kit (online courses) or admit you to an in-person session (see Covid guidance below)

You should not exchange bookings with others, if you cannot attend, you must cancel with us directly. 

We reserve the right to transfer in-person courses online if appropriate. Anyone booked onto an in--person course that needs to transfer online will be given the option to join this session as priority.

By attending one of our sessions, you agree to completion of the tasks set to the best of your ability and that you will complete a short evaluation at the end of the session, either on paper, by email or by Surveymonkey.

Resources are given to you for use in our sessions. We do not expect you to return any materials or equipment provided in online sessions. We do retain all excess materials and equipment for in-person sessions. If you receive a kit and then find you cannot attend your sessions, we ask you to return this wherever possible.

COVID 19 - UPDATE as of 09/06/21

Each venue will have specific requirements and guidelines inline with Government guidance on Covid-19. These will be explained to you at the time of booking. We also have copies of a risk assessment which you are welcome to view, if you choose to. Please be assured we have systems and procedures in pace to ensure adequate social distancing, cleanliness and hygiene. 

As of September 2020, the government have announced that some venues in England will require adults and children aged 11 or over to wear face coverings  (unless exempt for medical reasons). Unless circumstances change, all adults will be asked to wear a face covering to our sessions. This may change if government guidance is relaxed. As per the Department of Education Guidance, we request that children aged 11 or over wear face coverings when in communal areas (not applicable in learning rooms whilst sitting at desks). We will inform you at booking if this applies. Adults are expected to wear face coverings when in our venues, including if picking up or dropping children off.

Learners are reminded of the Rule of 6.  You should not book onto a course to meet socially with any more than 5 other people. This would class as a gathering of up to 6. 

QR codes for the Government NHS Track and Trace app will be available for use at our venues, and we will take the name, address and contact details of any person attending an in-person course. In the event that you cannot use the app, we will retain your booking contact details as per the instructions listed in our privacy policy below. 

You must not attend or course if you have Covid-19 symptoms or have had these symptoms in the last 7 days. If anyone in your household has shown Covid-19 symptoms, you should not attend a course with us for at least 14 days. If anyone who is attendance to our course displays Covid-19 symptoms or if they develop symptoms within 7 days of visiting the premises they must use the Test, Track and Trace system to alert others with whom they have been in contact. In the event of someone becoming unwell with suspected Covid19 symptoms while at our venue, collection will be arranged and asked to immediately inform Test, Track & Trace.

We must draw your attention to the following to ensure the venue is 'Covid Secure':

  • Follow signs and directions, as appropriate when in the venue or collecting/dropping off

  • Tables will be spaced suitably as per guidelines

  • You should not attend any course with more than one other person from another household

  • Interaction with other members should be maintained at a safe social distance

  • PPE will not be required by learners, but you have the option to provide your own and use this if you wish

  • Hand sanitiser will be accessible for your use

  • Teachers may wear PPE, if appropriate to the scenario. 

  • Shared equipment will be extremely limited and only used when it can be sanitised and cleaned appropriately before next use.

  • Learners will be given their own individual resources to use, wherever possible

  • Groups will be limited to consistent future groups, where possible. As outlined above, this means that at this stage, we will only be taking bookings for one session per household member unless specified otherwise.

  • Learners will sit on individual tables, unless they are attending with a sibling or family member from the same household, in which case they can share a table if they choose. 

We reserve the right to update this information inline with changes to government announcements and guidance.
