As much as we love your dogs, please leave them at home to insure harmonious atmosphere among potters. Same goes for kids, we understand you would love to share your passion for ceramics with your little ones, but a lot of members come to the studio to take a break from their own kids:)) Thank you for your understanding.
For membership cancellation, after your original three months commitment is over, please send a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 7 days prior to your next billing date. No membership prorations are given. If you are delinquent, you are still required to pay your last month of membership.
Note: We reserve the right to deny service to anyone to insure harmonious working atmosphere for our members and students. We expect members to adhere to our code of conduct: remain courteous, do not discuss politics in the studio, clean after yourself thoroughly (wipe your wheel area, sweep around, make sure to wash all items you used and put them back into appropriate places), do not touch anybody's work on shelves. Stay friendly and positive!!!
