Lost or Damaged Work
The Studio is not liable for damage or loss of ceramic work or personal property.
Ball Clay Studio understands that classes may be missed from time to time. We have designed our classes in a way, that a student can miss a class with out much impact to their learning experience. Each topic covered the previous week, will be covered once again the following week. We do not provide make-up classes for those missed due to student illness or other circumstances. You may not attend another class as an alternate make-up class. Your are encouraged to make up your missed time during our open studio hours.
Open Studio Hours
There is absolutely no instruction during “Open Studio Hours”. Our Open studio hours are for members and students to work in an creative peaceful environment. If you are a student who needs more instruction, our instructors will be more than happy to help you during class time. We also offer private instruction for students or members who would like to advance their ceramic skills.
Firing and Measuring Your Ceramics
Classes include a given number of firing inches outlined in the course description. Firing over your given allotment of firing inches may incur a firing fee for works fired. By signing up for a class a student agrees to measure, track and pay for all firing inches over the given allotment according to our measuring guidelines found under our Measuring for Firing page.
