Choplet Ceramics Studio Policies
Studio Protocols and Policy:
We are no longer checking for proof of vaccination at the door. Masks are now optional during bench time and during class, but kindly wear a mask if you have been recently sick or exposed. In the event CDC guidelines change before or during the course of a class, session or workshop and a state wide shutdown occurs, Choplet studio will transition to online instruction. Due to the impact of mandated closure on small businesses, we will be unable to provide refunds or credits for future classes, even though online classes may not provide the same instruction than in person instruction. Please make sure you only register if you are comfortable with this policy.
All classes and open studio hours are subject to change or cancellation.
Cost includes instruction, clay, tools, glaze, and the firing of one piece/person.
Additional pieces can be fired for a $15 fee, cash only under $25.
