Terms and Conditions
Workshop Health and Safety
We take studio safety very seriously. The risks associated with participating in a ceramics workshop include:
Risk to lungs from ceramic dust - work area is kept clean before, during and after activity, to avoid inhalation, using wet cloths.
Risks from slips and trips - please report any spillages to workshop facilitator and store items in designated area to avoid trips.
Cuts - be careful when using sharp tools.
Electrical hazards - electric wheels are PAT tested annually, avoid over use of water when throwing on the wheel.
To address these risks we require every workshop participant to complete a health and safety induction before you start working.
Each participant must comply with all health and safety instructions given by staff at all times.
Participants attend the workshop and use the equipment at their own risk with awareness of the inherent hazards of a workshop environment, which include but are not limited to use of sharp tools and sharp edges, the dangers of using materials and the risks associated with breathing silica dust.
In the interests of safety and hygiene, no crockery, glass or food are permitted in the workshop space.
In the event of a fire, participants are asked to make their way to the nearest available fire exit.
Smoking is forbidden in the workshop.
Due to the numerous risks associated with a workshop, children under the age of 16 must be accompanied at all times by an adult when attending a event.

A participant may only book or reschedule any session for themselves via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

A participant will be charged for a session or class (as applicable) where cancellation and the rescheduling of a session or class is not made online or notice of the same is not provided by email by a workshop participant in each case at least 48 hours prior to the booked time for such session or class.
Sessions are booked on a first-come first-served basis. A participant may request to be placed on a waiting list in the event that their first choice of session is unavailable.
