Question
Dear John,
Do you know who does public liability insurance for art and craft workshops?
Can this same sort of insurance be used for a stall selling crafts?
Also, people ask for a risk assessment if you are going to do workshops. Is this just something that you write up yourself and present to the organiser and the PLI company?
Best wishes,
Geraldine

Answer
Hi

It's not my area but I'm sure a Google search would come up with a few.

Try these:


http://www.craftinsurance.co.uk/

http://www.publicartonline.org.uk/resources/practicaladvice/adviceartists/insura

http://www.versatileinsurance.co.uk/public-liability.php

http://www.hiscox.co.uk/business-insurance/public-liability-insurance/?s=k2675&k

The companies will tell you what cover is available and whether a separate policy is needed for a stall. There are policies fro stall holders .... again, a Google search would reveal these.

On the subject of Risk Assessment .... yes,simply create a form yourself (there are templates online) and fill in what is relevant.
