COVID-19 UPDATED INFORMATION & HOURS

AUGUST 2020

WE ASK THAT YOU NO LONGER WALK IN, CALL, OR EMAIL TO SEE ABOUT ANY AVAILABLE SPACE FOR YOU TO WORK. ACCORDINGLY, WE CAN'T HAVE ANY UNSCHEDULED OPEN STUDIO TIME DURING THE PANDEMIC. WE PLAN ON BRINGING IT BACK WHEN EVERYTHING CALMS DOWN. IF YOU PLANNED ON ENROLLING AS AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST, WE ASK THAT YOU ENROLL IN ONE OF THE CLASSES THAT WE WILL OFFER FOR FALL 2020.

The first month of our modified Summer Session was a success, so we feel that we can go ahead with launching our Fall Session in the near future. We will continue to comply with all City & State regulations regarding the Covid-19 outbreak.

 

Accordingly, we need to implement a new system for workshop time. We ask that you now purchase that time on our site, you can do that here. That way, we can control the number of people entering the studio as we can not afford to have more than mandated by City/State Gov't. 

We need to control the number of people entering the studio, so please ONLY COME at the times you have registered for, either for workshop time or your class time. 

Our fall schedule will follow the usual times/days that we have had in the past. Prices for enrolling have not changed, but workshop prices are now $5 per hour for all enrolled students. We have reduced the number of spots per class to 5 for wheel classes & 4 during hand building classes (same # of spots for workshop time as well)

We are also going to stop our beginner wheel classes for this session as well. We have found that trying to teach effectively while also trying to maintain an adequate distance is pretty hard to do! If you are thinking of joining our studio for the first time this fall, we ask that you try out hand building for this session. When distancing measures are no longer needed we plan on bringing back our beginner classes.

We thank you for the continued support and understanding during these crazy times!

YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED STUDENT IN OUR FALL 2020 SEMESTER TO USE ANY WORKSHOP TIME. IF YOU DO NOT SIGN UP, YOU CAN NOT UTILIZE WORKSHOP TIME.
