Class Announcements

 May 23rd, 2022. Week 5

Retail sale is 20% off all dirty girls tools 

 We have two special events to watch out for this week. Thursday from 1:30 - 3:30 we have 19 in for a wheel event. That same night we have 16 coming in from 7:30 -9:30. Friday from 6-8 there are 6 on the wheel and a small hand building party. 

Next week is the last week for wet clay for this session. TEACHERS, please go over this with your students so they understand. 

Students, please remember that staff needs to shut down at 9:00PM so plan to be cleaned up and out of here at that time. Clean up and storage of your pots usually takes 30 minutes so plan accordingly. 

This is the time in a session when clean up after practice and classes gets a little rough. Just a reminder, clean everything you use and while it is still wet, dry it with a clean towel. That includes the floor and the table by your wheel! Mopping with dirty water without wiping the floor with a towel actually makes things worse. Thanks for your help!

Next week, June 3rd is JW’s opening! put that one on your calendar. THIS IS THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE SEASON! Info is on the wall of knowledge in the main studio.

  

Have a great week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We still have to think about the safety of others every day. Please remember to wear a mask, cover nose and mouth, wash hands often, stay at a safe distance, and use the sanitizing sprays to clean your work station after practice times and class. Thanks for doing this. Our teachers and fellow studio members REALLY appreciate it.  Please see our guidelines below for more info.

Studio Health Guidelines

As we confront the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to share the health and safety measures that we are putting into place in the studio.  As of right now we are planning on continuing to stay open and hold classes.  This may change as new guidelines and restrictions come out from the state and local health departments.  We will notify members via email of any changes, so please be on the lookout for communications from us.

Here’s what we’re doing: There will be hand-sanitizing stations at both entrances and throughout the building. Please use those as you enter and exit the studio

Mask or face shield rule is in effect! everyone must have a face covering while in the building.

  • There will be soap at every sink.
  • Restrooms and high use studio surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized daily.
  • There will be either disinfectant wipes, or disinfectant spray and paper towels available to studio members to use at any space where you will be working.
  • The retail store will have individual cleaning sponges available at cost so students can avoid using the community sponges.
  • There are disposable gloves to wear when looking at items in the retail shop. Only 2 customers are allowed in at a time. 

Here’s what we’re asking you to do:

  • If you’re feeling sick, please don’t come in to the studio.
  • If you’ve been exposed to someone who’s sick, please self quarantine for 10 days before returning to the studio.
  • Wear a mask or face shield at all times while in the building.
  • Sanitize your hands upon entering and leaving the studio.
  • Use the sign in sheets at both entrances when you arrive and make sure to use the SIGN UP GENIUS to reserve a space for any practice times.
  • Wash your hands every 30 minutes.
  • Spread out-  work at least 6 feet away from other members.
  • Use the cleaning spray bottles we have all over the studio. When finished working, spray the work area and leave it. Don’t forget the on/off switch on the wheel.
  • If you’re feeling uncomfortable or worried please talk to a staff member, we may be able to find a solution that would make you feel safer in the studio environment.
  • You know we hate to say this one, but please don’t bring in snacks to share.

Stay healthy out there!  Thanks for your patience and understanding as we figure this out together. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any concerns.
