I will continue the emphasis on socially distanced workstations, individual tool kits, extensive cleaning, and smaller class size. ALL students will continue to practice excellent studio sanitation protocol such as frequent hand washing, use of disinfecting hand gel and wipes, cleaning tools you use as you go that are not in your individual tool kit, staying home if you do not feel well, excellent coughing/sneezing/hygiene protocol, and following all Diener Studio requirements.
The always-in-place studio safety protocols of shop apron, wrap around safety glasses, closed toe shoes, non-drapey non-flammable clothing, hair/bangs pulled back, no food eaten in the studio, ventilation, and wearing a particulate respirator when Enameling remain ongoing.
If you have your own safety glasses bring them with you. Bring water to drink as there is no vending machine.
