Safety Plan

Class protocols & safe working guidelines.

March 2022 update:

The Province of Ontario has loosened many restrictions that were in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize that COVID-19 is not gone, but restrictions can be loosened. Safety is one of the main concerns to ensure that a safe pottery creation space is maintained. Please read the details of our updated Safety Plan.

Please DO NOT enter the Clay Works Studio if you feel ill.
  • Members are not permitted in the studio during class time for any reason.

  • All members and students will be required to sign the studio waiver.

  • 15 students will be allowed in each adult class.12 students will be allowed for youth and kids classes. **Please try to maintain some social distancing.**

  • Mask wearing is recommended, but not mandatory.

  • Each wheel will have a rinsing bucket and sponge to reduce congregating at the sink.

  • Instructors will manage their classes to ensure that the sink and glaze areas do not become overcrowded.

  • The washroom is open and accessible. There will be spray bottles of cleaner available. Students will be required to do a quick clean of the toilet seat, flush lever, paper towel dispenser lever, taps, light switch and door handles after using the washroom.

  • We are still requiring ALL studio users to sign in and out. Instructors will be required to keep attendance and the students will have to sign in as well. 

  • Cleaning is as important as ever. Each student/member must clean their area: wheels, tools, nearby shelves and floor thoroughly.

  • It may be prudent for you to include hand sanitizer and paper towels in your tool kit.
