We will need time between each session to clean before the arrival of the next group. Therefore we need your help in making sure you arrive and leave your sessions at the allotted time indicated above. That way we can keep everyone as safe as possible.
No more than 6 people at a time including tutors . This means you will need to book in for your session. Masks Masks to be worn when arriving and moving around. Once you are at your station your mask wearing is up to you. Sanitisers/ Hand washing Sanitisers will be provided at the front door and at other parts of the pottery. Hot water is now provided at the sink, kitchen and toilet so hot soapy water also available! Yay !
To make the pottery as safe as possible please bring as much of your own equipment as possible. This includes (but not an exhaustive list) : Aprons; Pottery tools including paint brushes; paints; and most important your own mug! Use of the Roller/Pottery Wheels/ Other shared equipment Wipes and antiseptic spray will be provided to clean shared equipment before and after use. As an extra precaution please wash hands thoroughly before and after using shared equipment. Other equipment could include rolling pins and hot guns for example.
Coffee and tea will be provided but will have to be drunk at your work station and you will have to take responsibility of the safety measures this entails – like dipping your brush in your mug by mistake!) No drinks in the Glazing room please. Storing of on-going work Work in progress can be wrapped and put in your own plastic box with your label. Hopefully this will not only keep things clean but also you will be able to locate your work.
End of sessions:
As sessions and potters will finish at similar times we may need to do a rota so areas such as the sink do not get overcrowded. So please bear this in mind and try to clean as you go as much as possible. It is something we may need to work through as we go along to work together. If there are any other thoughts that you have on keeping the pottery safe, that you feel we have missed , please let us know. Let's hope we can get back to potting safely and enjoyably !!!
