SCROLL to bottom for packing, shipping and deliveries updates!
At such an unprecedented and unpredictable time we've felt compelled to put together this simple coronavirus page so you know what's going on and what we are doing.
During this time we are absolutely committed to helping and supporting every artist we can through this crisis in the best way we can.
We've come up with a few things we think we can contribute to help. The biggest of those is making sure that we can still get your art materials to you so you have a creative outlet during these challenging days.
Even though we are isolating we do not have to feel isolated and the artistic community around the globe is stronger and better than ever! We know a lot of you will be using this time to focus in on your creative projects and connect online.
"We may be in a time of isolation but we don't need to feel isolated. At a time like this art and artists are really vital. Making art can connect us and can lift our spirits, we are here for the creative community. Do not be shy to say hi and get involved. I love you all so much. Please stay home, stay safe, get arty and wash your hands!" - Stuart Semple
Our artist support team will remain online to help you with whatever you need and you can reach them here: firstname.lastname@example.org

NEW HOW-TO'S AND SIMPLE MAKES TO DO AT HOME
Keep your eyes on our youtube channel - over the next few days we will be dropping some new how-to's and makes for you to try at home :)
HOW WE ARE DOING THINGS
Most people we work with are now safely at home, working remotely. Our paint makers are going it alone and many have small paint making setups in their houses. Those that come into our studio come in on their own, make paint, clean everything down then go home. Anyone who can possibly work from home as been doing so for a couple of weeks now. Anyone in our teams who we felt might be at risk of complications, or any with family members who may be at risk have been home safe, sound and looked after for several weeks now.
PACKING SHIPPING AND DELIVERIES UPDATE
We will update this daily! We are still sending out your materials and by the most part artists are getting them on time. If you live in a zone that has blocked non-essential deliveries, you will likely be affected so have a look at what's going on in your particular location. We've checked out the carriers and the warehouses and have dropped any that are not looking after their staff properly, so you may see less shipping options than you are used to, but we just can't support people who aren't acting properly at a time like this. We are solid in our belief that all our partners are taking things seriously and acting ethically - and we are keeping our eye on them for you! All the carriers are set up to leave your materials on the doorstep and you won't have to touch anything! With all that said, things are a tiny bit slower so if your materials take an extra day or two we are sorry!
