Seating & Face Coverings Policies
Looking forward to seeing you at an upcoming workshop at the studio!
We're aligning with federal, state, and local guidelines to mitigate as many risks as we can in creating a healthy and safe (and fun!) environment to work and make.
In addition to our seating and face coverings policies below (please read!), we've updated cleaning and sanitizing protocols in between classes, implemented new methods of providing technique demonstrations to allow for more distancing, and provide little to no shared supplies between students.
While in the studio everyone, including staff and students, are required to wear face coverings, meaning a cloth, paper, or disposable face covering that covers the nose and mouth.
In line with county guidelines, once seated for the class session, we're implementing a "most of the time" face coverings policy for students. We're serving beverages and anticipate that people will need to remove their mask temporarily to drink. If you aren't enjoying a beverage, please keep your covering on.
People with a medical condition or disability that prevents them from safely wearing a face covering will be exempt.
We're currently limiting the number of seats and rearranging our tables to accommodate social distancing during our events. It is recommended to stay at least 6 feet away from others to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We also recognize that those in the same "household" attending together may prefer to be in closer proximity to socialize. This requires us to do a little bit more pre-planning and seat assignments than usual.
Our default set up includes three large tables that each have 3 chairs spaced six feet a part, for a total of 9 people in class. This is less than half of our usual maximum of 20 people.
If you've signed up for two or more people together in your registration, we'll assign you seats at the same table and also assume that as a party you're comfortable with potentially being seated in closer proximity together. This is especially the case for groups of more than 3, if you'd all like to sit at the same table. But of course if you have other preferences for seating, please let us know and we'll do our best to make it all work!
If you've signed up separately from someone, but would like to be assigned a seat near them, please let us know.
If we aren't notified in advance of any seating preferences, we can't guarantee to be able to accommodate them. The goal is to avoid moving people and their supplies once they've been seated.
