Do not enter the studio if you are sick or was in contact with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days. Cancel or reschedule.
Sanitize hands before using the studio. Wash hands to remove clay when you have finished.
Wear a mask and keep 6 ft apart from other users. Work in your assigned work area.
We will limit the number of studio users to allow 6 feet between each person, or group from the same household.
We will give studio users their own work area, water, and clay.
Avoid touching other users’ clay, water and tools.
Clean and sanitize any shared tools before handing over to someone else.
Before leaving, dump unused or leftover clay in the used-clay container and your ‘clay-water’ into the bucket.
One person (Rosemary) will hand out tools, set up work areas, divide and distribute clay.

Do not touch clay and equipment while some one else is using the wheel.
