General Studio Guidelines

–  Open Studio participants must be at least 18 years of age.

–  Open Studio participants will be given a brief introduction to the studio and asked to read and agree to these guidelines.

–  Please sign in on arrival and out when you leave and pay any money owing.

–  Please observe the shelf signage in the studio and be sure to label and store your work in the relevant place. Please ask if you need any help.

–  Plan to include enough cleanup time at the end of your session to leave your workspace and any tools or equipment you have used in at least as clean a condition as you found it.

–  We will fire the kilns regularly when there is a full bisque or glaze load to keep things moving. Kilns will not be fired to suit individual needs so please allow plenty of time so as not to be disappointed. This is especially relevant in the Festival if you are showing in Open Houses!

–  Please focus on seeing projects through to completion to avoid shelf space management issues.  Please take your finished pieces home as soon as they are completed and paid for.

–  Always ask for assistance at any point during open studio if something needs to be moved, stored, or glazed, or for any other reason.  There will always be someone on site to assist.

– Please be aware and respectful of the work and workspace of others around you and keep noise levels down to maintain the focused atmosphere.
