Studio etiquette: 

Students are expected to comply with studio guidelines and maintain a clean work environment during every class. It is equally important to respect others working in the studio, maintaining a friendly but professional manner. SSNYC is committed to providing an exceptional experience for students, members, and teachers alike.

Age requirement: 

Due to the nature of studio ceramics and the materials used, all classes are for adults age 21 and older

Makeup class Policy: We try to be as accommodating as possible with scheduling make-up classes, but it is based on availability. Make-ups must be pre-approved by the teacher to ensure the make-up class is the appropriate skill level, and that there is availability in the class.  If we are not able to schedule a make-up class, the student can come in for one day during Open Studio hours.

Refund Policy: Refund and transfer requests must be made via mail or in person two weeks prior to start of the class. Registration receipts are required and there is a $50 processing fee for all refunds and transfers.
