Clay Studio Rules:
To sustain a creative, safe, and healthy studio environment, we ask everyone to review the information below before beginning working and adhere to each point. Enrollment in the program constitutes agreeing to the following terms:
- No outside clay or glaze is permitted during Open Studio.
- Wheels are available on a first come, first served basis.
- Write your name on all your personal items, including bags of clay, tools, and materials. Fuller Craft Museum is not responsible for the disappearance or security of personal items.
- All working areas must be cleaned after use. The last 15 minutes of Open Studio hours are dedicated to gathering tools and cleaning work tables, floors, tools, and other equipment. This is a communal studio and its cleanliness depends on everyone doing their part.
- FCM tools must be cleaned and returned to proper receptacle after use. These tools are for everyone to use while in the studio and may never be borrowed, stored on shelves, or taken off the premises for ANY reason.
- If a tool should happen to break or if a piece of equipment is not working properly or a supply is low, please bring it to staff’s attention immediately.
- There is absolutely no eating in the studio! This isn’t healthy for you, and we want to keep the studio clean.
- Conserve resources as much as possible. Use cloth towels instead of paper towels. Place clay scraps in the appropriate labeled buckets.
- This is not a drop-in program.
- Open studio members are assigned two shelves per person to house all in progress work, and materials
- All work must be collected or glazed within two weeks of creation. Work left in the studio in any stage (green, bisque, or glaze fired) for more than two weeks will be discarded. Please be respectful of our shared space—move your creations through the process.
