All participants must read the new protocols prior to signing up for a time slot.

For the safety of our staff and other studio members, failure to compile with these protocols will result in suspension from Open Clay Studio. These protocols will be updated as new information and procedures become available – please review them regularly as you attend Open Clay Studio.
