COVID-19 Precautions/Rules: Clay Pottery Studio is diligent in following CDC guidelines and providing a safe environment for all students, therefore the following rules are set in place and must be followed at all times: All children/instructors are required to wear a mask at all times except when drinking. Everyone will be spaced out 6 ft. apart at all times. Children and Instructor's temperatures will be taken upon arrival every day and anyone with a 100.4 temperature or above will be sent home. Classes will be held in our new garage space next door to our studio with the garage door open at all times to provide adequate ventilation and air-flow. Children should come dressed in layers in case they get cold. Hand sanitizer/sinks will be accessible at all times and students will be encouraged to wash their hands before/after class. Work stations and tools will be regularly sanitized. Parents may elect to purchase an individual tool kit for their child to use instead of sharing tools for an additional fee of $15 per tool kit. Students that are feeling any covid-related symptoms should contact Clay Pottery Studio immediately and should not come to class.  We appreciate your cooperation to help us create a safe environment for everyone involved!
