ClayWorks Student/Member Agreement & Waiver of Liability

This document has been updated! Please read. MARCH 2022

The Province of Ontario has loosened many of the restrictions that were in place because of the Covid 19 pandemic. We recognize that Covid 19 is not gone, but that our restrictions can also be loosened. It is one of our foremost concerns to continue to have the safest space for pottery creation that we can provide. Please read these details of our updated Safety Plan.

  • Please DO NOT enter the Clay Works Studio if you feel ill.
  • As of August 28, 2021, anyone age 12 and over who entered ClayWorks studio for any reason (students, instructor, studio member) had to show proof of having two COVID-19 vaccines. Please continue to be up to date with your vaccinations. We will no longer be asking for proof.

Protocols for classes and safe working guidelines for students and members:

  • Members may not come to the studio during class time for any reason.
  • Members may choose to drop by the studio for pick up or drop off outside of class time.
  • All members and students will still be required to sign the Studio waiver.
  • 15  Students will be allowed for each adult class. 12 students will be allowed for each kids and youth wheel class. Please try to maintain some social distancing.
  • Three ply, surgical, KN or N95 Masks, must be worn in all classes. There are no exceptions to this rule. 
  • Masks are recommended but not mandated for Studio Members in the studio outside of class time.                   
  • Each wheel will have a rinsing bucket and sponge to reduce congregating at the sink.
  • Instructors will manage their classes to ensure that sink and glaze areas do not become over crowded.
  • The washroom is open and accessible. There will be spray bottles of cleaner available. Students will be required to do a quick clean of toilet seat, flush lever, paper towel dispenser lever, taps, light switch and door handles after using the washroom.
  • We are still requiring studio users to sign in and out. Instructors will be required to keep attendance and the students will have to sign in as well. Instructors too must sign in and out. Members must sign in. Full names and telephone numbers will be required.
  • Cleaning is as important as ever. Each student/member must clean their area: wheels, tools, nearby shelves and floor thoroughly.
  • It may be prudent for you to include hand sanitizer and paper towels in your tool kit.

Waiver: By signing this document, the student/member confirms understanding that there is inherently some risk in attending any public gathering including the ClayWorks Studio/Classroom and that the Brantford Potters’ Guild and ClayWorks Studio cannot be held liable for any exposure to the COVID-19 virus caused by misinformation, misrepresentation of exposure or the health history provided by a student/member, nor for any possible illness experienced during or after attending Clayworks Studio or classes.  I the undersigned hereby waive any claim of damages or liability against the Brantford Potters’ Guild, any of its employees, members, officers, directors, instructors, assistants or volunteers.
