Ceramics Program participants enrolled in a course must contribute one hour per term towards general studio cleaning to maintain a healthy and productive work environment. Last Make Days – This is the last clay period that new clay can be used and new creations made. You are allowed to come in and trim/finish your work after this date but the intention is that your pieces are drying to be able to be bisque and then glazed in a timely manner. Last Classes: All work should be removed from the class shelves, all personal items removed from the studio including locker items! Class clean-up duties will be assigned. Participants have the opportunity to be involved in kiln loading, firing and unloading, glaze mixing, and all other aspects of the ceramic process. Participants have studio access 7 days a week unless otherwise noted.
