COVID-19 Update

The following provides an update on guild classes and programs in response to the Corona Virus (COVID-19).

No pottery and mixed media classes until further notice.

Pottery Open Studio 

Pottery open studio is cancelled until further notice.  When we are able to offer pottery open studio again you will be able to come back and finish off your pieces.

Mixed Media Open Studio

All mixed media open studios are cancelled until further notice.

Guild members with full studio access

At this time current full studio members will be allowed to continue to access the studio.  We ask that that all full studio members ensure that they sign in/out and follow the enhanced cleaning instructions posted at the guild in addition to the guidance provided by the GNWT.    Please do not come to the studio if you are sick, have just returned from international travel and have not completed the required self – isolation period.  Also please coordinate attendance with other full studio members to ensure that you can maintain the required social distancing.

At this time, we will not be approving any new requests from open studio access members to change their status to full studio access members in order to further limit the number of members using the guild during this time period.

Stay safe and healthy during these challenging times.
