The Donn Zver School of Pottery is open during the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter terms. In addition to regular classes, the School does provide open studio time for students to work and practice during times that there are no scheduled classes. Open studio time will be posted in the School and will change from time to time depending on scheduled classes.
During your first class, you will receive a tour of the school by your educator. Details of parking, entering/exiting the building, washroom locations, fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and a review of the safety in the studio will be covered.
Studio classes will be posted in the School at the beginning of each term as well as being posted on the School website and the Donn Zver Pottery website.
Since you are sharing this space with other people it is important to clean up after yourself. The school should be as clean or cleaner than you found it. As a student, you are expected to respect other students, their work, and the school's facilities.
Never attempt to use equipment or materials that you have not been trained to use in the school. This includes wheels, kilns, the slab roller, extruders, and dry materials.
Closed shoes must be worn in the school at all times. Loose clothing, jewelry are not recommended. Long hair must be pulled back to prevent accidents.
Drinks that you bring or are provided by the school must be a closed vessel.
There is a M.E.R.P. (major emergency response plan) in place in the school. Your educator will cover this during your orientation.
By enrolling in a class at the Donn Zver School of Pottery, students agree to adhere to the policies and best practices of the School. Problematic or disruptive behaviour may result in the loss of class and studio privileges and/or future participation in the Donn Zver School of Pottery programs.
