We will track your attendance in the studio. You must check in/out for each session.
You may register for an Open Studio either on-line using our Open Studio Scheduler or in the studio. You must pay for the session separately, which will be validated at each session you attend.
You must register for your intended session at least one day in advance to ensure we will be open. If we have no RSVPs for a particular date/time, we will not be open.
We aim to provide Open Studio at least 2 times during the week (schedule will vary based on customer request and staff availability). Please contact the shop to determine what dates/times the studio will be open to reserve your seat. At this time, there is a limit to no more than 4 confirmed bench rentals per session.
Equipment Authorization Profile:
All students must be approved to operate all equipment and tools in the studio. This requires an appointment with a staff member to review your experience, which will be recorded in an Equipment Authorization Profile, which will be confidentially maintained on file for all students.
All students must comply with safety rules of the studio. Students who do not wish to comply will not be allowed to use the studio.
