Basic Studio Rules
You are responsible for leaving the studio as you found it.
Clean all tools and return them to where you found them.
Sweep all trimmings from floor and discard in large trash bucket.
Clean floor of clay drips around your station.
Wipe down all tables, work spaces, or equipment you have used.
Put heavier clay muck in the large trash container, put slop water into the large water bucket.
Clean all bats, boards, tables and wheels you have used with large oval sponge.
Return oval sponge and throwing bucket to metal cart.
Assist others if they seem to be needing help.
Please be considerate of other people’s work.
Don’t touch any clay project that doesn't belong to you.
This includes not uncovering, poking or pinching projects wrapped in plastic, no matter how much you want to.
The kiln will be fired when there is enough work to fill it efficiently.
Special or dedicated firings are possible at an additional charge.
There are limited storage spaces available for projects in progress.
You are responsible for covering and storing your work securely. Although we try to keep a watchful eye, Zen & Now is not responsible for any loss or damage to your work or belongings.
End of Session:
Please remember to take all your work with you at the last class session. Items that are being fired are required to be picked up no later then two weeks from your last class. Due to the studio storage limitations, we do not keep finished or unfinished work longer then 2 weeks unless we are behind schedule. If you have special circumstances, please request an extension.
Abandoned or dried out pieces not labeled and work left over will be discarded at the beginning of the next class session. Abandoned clay, tools and any personal items left on your shelf will be discarded two weeks after class has ended in order to save space.
If you wish to complete your unfinished work and are not interested in signing up for an additional class, you can do so by bringing your work to our open studio and pay the hourly or daily studio rate.
Thank you for being a good, kind and considerate Zener!
