The BAS Committee has made the tough but necessary decision to suspend Studio Groups until further notice. Please be assured that this temporary measure will be subject to fortnightly reviews, but we need to be realistic that it could be prolonged.

The Committee has a duty of care to members and a responsibility to ensure no visitor catches Covid-19 from attending a Studio Group. To this end, we have considered every realistic plan for personal distancing and every cleaning protocol and determined that it’s impossible to keep members safe within the premises.  All access via the door code will be suspended from 22 March 2020.

Your Committee is giving considerable thought to creative ways for all BAS members to engage in and share our art. Your inventive ideas would be very welcome. Email us on
