PLEASE take any rubbish with you and dispose of it responsibly in any of the street bins. There are replacement bin liner bags in the draws in the kitchen. Please do not leave rubbish in the bin in the Alchemy Space because it attracts cockroaches and ants.
Candle wax is an occupational hazard in the Alchemy Space. If you spill wax on the vinyl floor you must use your fingernails or other soft-plastic implement to remove it. There are polishing cloths in the grey storage unit behind the door you can use to buff the floor.
IMPORTANT: If you get wax on the carpet this will need to carefully removed by using a WARM iron. Do not use a HOT iron it will damage the carpet. You remove the wax by putting brown paper or newspaper down over the wax and applying the warm iron. The wax melts and is absorbed by the paper like a blotter. You keep ironing until no more wax can be absorbed into the paper.
Picking up the Key
Step 1. You use the code Tim will give you to open the Key-safe.
Step 2. You close the safe and change the the code, ie, the observable numbers. This will prevent unwanted persons from seeing what the combination is. As an added deterrent please close the small hatch to conceal the combination-numbers.
Return the Key
It is important to return the key to the Key-safe after you use so the next person can use it. Again, once the keys are in the safe, please change the observable numbers.
A shared space
It is important that we each be responsible to maintain a clean space. If you use the small waste paper bin in the space, please empty it when you leave. Please replace the bin liner with another bag and empty your rubbish either in the large kitchen bin or use one of the street bins.
PLEASE take away any rubbish with you. Do not leave this in the Alchemy Space. This is really important. If the room is left in an untidy or dirty state we will add an additional cleaning charge of $50 to have someone come in to clean. We actually state that a condition of use is for you to also clean the space after your use.
If you damage something please do report this to Tim so he can arrange to fix it. Depending on what the damage has affected will determine if there are any repair costs involved.
IMPORTANT: You may be held responsible. By using the Alchemy Space you agree to being responsible for any damage or lose of property. If you see something is damaged you must report this to Tim prior to the start of your session, otherwise there is no way we can determine you were not responsible. Use either Facebook Messenger to Tim or SMS him on 0416339705.

A. The key is kept in a small Key-Safe on the righthand-side of the front street door. You must be given a 4-digit access code by Tim. For security reasons this gets changed regularly. There are three keys. One for the top lock of the street door, a second deadlock, and a ‘green’ key for The Alchemy Space studio.
Because the street address is 99 King Street Newtown, we are also mindful of letting people know from the start that the entrance is from the side in Egan Street.
To help we and our neighbours the Kundalini Yoga Centre have large signs either side of the front street door, and also on the upstairs studio doors.
