Each registered student and assistant will be given personal shelves on which to store your work, clay, tools and personal items. All your work, etc., is limited to this space.
Please keep your shelves clean.
Students are asked to begin cleaning up their space 15 minutes before the end of class. There is a 15 minute grace period as I know it is not always possible to finish up a project at the exact time. Over time is calculated at 40 nis per hour and can be added to your firing card. Please be conscientious.

HEALTH AND SAFTEY
in the studio are very important. Please try your utmost to follow these guidelines for you and your fellow potters.
CLAY DUST IS TOXIC AND IT IS CRITICAL THAT WE MAINTAIN A HEALTHY STUDIO.
To reduce dust and inhalation, any cleaning and cleaning of work should be done WET.
ANY sanding, scraping or rubbing MUST be done outside.
There are chemicals in the glazes that are toxic. It is advised to not get glaze on your hands and to use gloves when glazing. Any rubbing or scraping of glaze must be done OUTSIDE.
Wet wipe any spills with a sponge on counters or floor.
To keep dust to a minimum, all tools, trays, netting etc. need to be cleaned with clean water to get clay and dust off them before returning them.
At the end of class time please USE A DRY SQUEEGIE FIRST THEN A WET MOP on the floor area and clean up any of your spills with a damp cloth.
People using the wheel should wipe off the shelves they used and clean the bats well.
Plastic used to cover work should be thrown out when it becomes dirty and dusty
Working in a studio with other potters gives us lots of good opportunities, It also requires of us some attention to the following to make the working experience pleasant for everyone:
Please make sure to clean up your work areas totally before you leave. Double check.
Wash all tools, trays, netting, boards down with before returning them to their correct places.
Move glaze work drying on the mats to the firing shelves as soon as they are dry to make space for others to work. Clean up this area after you finish.
Organize your work flow so that you finish projects before moving on to new ones whenever possible – both on a daily and weekly basis.
Label all your personal items clearly with your name: tools, sketch books, glazes and underglazes, forms.
All work must be labeled with your name and HF when appropriate.
REMEMBER THE HAPPY CAMPER RULE - LEAVE IT CLEANER THAN YOU FOUND IT.
RETURN EVERYTING FROM WHERE YOU FOUND IT.
Thank you all for being part of the studio. Your suggestions and comments are always welcome.
