Workshops News

Right here you can find out all the latest news, updates and info regarding WORKSHOP CLASSES!

I receive a serious amount of emails regarding workshops, so from now on (to save us both some time) please check here for workshop updates, including;

  • New Venues
  • New Workshops
  • New Dates
  • Changes to venues & important information
  • Potential lockdown restrictions

And remember, if you want updates straight to your mailbox you gotta be signed up to my mailing list.

You can also head to the ‘Venues’ tab from the drop down menu for all the info on each of our venues, and even submit your premises as a potential workshop venue here.

And check out my Workshop Frequently Asked Questions & T&C’s – It’s important you check these, even if you have been before – as everything has changed.

I also have a COVID policy – measures to keep you safe while we get creative!


(Date April 2021)

So, as you probably know kids went back to school on the 8th March, and the government have released a ‘roadmap’ for our return to normality! 

But, before you start dancing in the streets, let’s outline what that means for our workshop classes…

(I’ll outline the bits that relate to classes, but by all means check it out yourself on the government website with this link – )

The dates set out by the govt are based on specific targets being met, and numbers of infections continuing to fall.

Phase 1 – 8th March – kids go back to school. 
                   29th March – Outside 6 people from different households can meet.
                  Indoor activities are off limits.

Phase 2 – 12th April – Indoor socialising still barred. 

Phase 3 – 17th May  Groups of up to six + two households will be allowed indoors

Step 4 – 21st June – It is hoped all legal limits on social contact can be removed.

My workshops are indoor activities for 6+ people that require power (& a significant lack of rain to run smoothly!)

Even though we can wheel benches outside in good weather, we can never rely on the great British weather to hold up, so we must presume we will be indoors.

Therefore 17th May 2021 is the earliest I believe we can safely workshop together again. 

New workshop dates for Pallet Furniture & Freestyle classes will be added by the 15th April 2021 –
for classes which will run after 17th May 2021

You’ll receive an email notification of the launch if you are signed up to my mailing list & select ‘Workshops’ or ‘everything’.

My  Terms and conditions have changed – by booking any of my workshops you agree to be bound by them so please check them out.

We have all new Workshop Venues!

We are no longer running workshops at Brighton Woodstore in Elder Place – this store is no longer standing! (Nothing to do with me, I promise… it’s being redeveloped.)

The Woodstore are still going strong & are offering a delivery only service until they find their new home.

In the meantime I have been very busy finding new workshop venues, I have several lined up… and more in the queue.

Pallet furniture, Pallet planter & Freestyle classes start again in 2021

at Mid Sussex Wood Recycling!

Many of our new venues are schools and universities with fantastic facilities.

However, as you can imagine they have a lot on right now with full-time students & their return. So workshops at these venues will be released later than others to give these organisations time to regroup safely.

Some workshops are better suited to certain venues than others, for instance MidSussex is perfect for Pallet & Freestyle workshops, so we are starting there.

Powertools for Beginners,

Lamp Making & more…

Will be added soon – I have had to reschedule the proposed release again due to the new tier system.

As these venues are educational establishments, their duty is first to their students safety & wellbeing.

Which is why I have been asked to hold off release of these classes until we have clearer news on the tier system.

My aim (all being good) is to release tickets to all my other workshop classes, & add some new ones by mid May 2021, with workshops for these classes starting soon after. 

If you are worried about waiting to purchase tickets as presents – please use my virtual gift card option.

When dates are bookable I will let you know via a mail out and on social media.

Remember – No one ever loses a Salvage Sister ticket, you can always reschedule your own class  – make sure you check out my T&C’s

You can find my socials at the bottom of this page, come and get involved!

Thank you, I mean it…

For your continued support, your unwavering loyalty & your patience!!

It’s been a long old road, but I think we might just make it guys!

Peace Out,

Charis xx
