COVID-19 Update from the Castlemaine Press Committee


COVID-19 Update from the Castlemaine Press Committee

We are very happy to be able to let our community know that from Saturday August 1 the print studio will once again be available to hire. Individual members who have completed their induction and been approved for independent hire, are once more welcome to make bookings to work independently in the space.


Thank you for your support, patience and understanding during the period that we temporarily shut up shop and while we’ve worked through re-opening in line with government restrictions and requirements.


We’ve missed you! And all the bubbling activity and creativity that sustain the Press as a living and lively space, and we look forward to welcoming members back into the studio.


With your booking please take time to familiarise yourself with the additional  measures required in order to minimise risk of infection, and look after each other as best we can. We are supplying hand and surface sanitisers, and clear cleaning instructions. And we ask that members:


  • book the Press on your own (not with a fellow member for the time being)
  • observe all the steps in the guidelines we’ve put in place for sanitising hands and surfaces from the time you open the door, to the time you close it behind you (these will be sent to you when you make a booking, and can be downloaded from the our studio access page on this site)
  • be guided by our our slightly more BYO arrangements (also see guidelines for details)
  • understand that we will arrange bookings so that there are 3 days between one user and the next.


We hope you understand that all workshops and Saturday Sessions remain on hold until things settle.


Thank you once again, stay well, and hope you have and continue to be immersed in in print. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if there’s anything you want to ask or suggest.


All good wishes, Castlemaine Press Committee
