Covid-19 – International Masterclass Update: October 2021
Even though UK laws have recently changed regarding social distancing and the wearing of a mask not being mandatory, the UK government have recommended the wearing of masks and social distancing to be applied when that person feels they need to act responsibly. The UK government has also stated that this is a 'trial period' to see if changing the rules will result in the permanent decline of Covid -19 cases. As most of David Cakes students travel into Liverpool from overseas (some from countries that are still classed as 'amber' and 'red' listed countries) they would still be required by law to go into quarantine and self isolate for 10 days. It is for these reasons that David is still unable to teach a live training event at a hotel venue. David's teaching approach involves very close creative interaction with each student who would also be sitting in close proximity of each other, as well as having to share equipment and materials. Students would also have to gather around David to watch him give creative demonstrations throughout each day of the 7 day 1-to-1 personalised training event in order to observe and learn his training technique. So the only way that live international cake decorating masterclass courses can resume is when the Covid-19 pandemic has fully subsided on a global level. Once this happens a new date for training events to resume will be announced on David Cakes website.
