Missed Classes

Sarah Schembri Ceramics Pty Ltd cannot guarantee make-up classes due to the high volume of students. If you are unable to attend a class, please email sarah@sarahschembri.com It is recommended that participants make every effort to attend the full number of sessions.

Student Responsibilities

It is recommended for students to read Sarah’s Studio information at https://sarahschembri.com for general information regarding the studio.

Students are responsible to ensure that they do not have any prior medical illness or injuries that will be exacerbated by attending the selected class, and if unsure it is recommended for students to seek medical advice prior to attending.

Students are responsible for any physical injuries and for damage or loss of personal property, whilst at the studio. It is highly recommended that participants attend their class jewellery free. In particular, it is advised not to wear any rings, bangles, wristbands, watches or earrings. Short nails are strongly encouraged as long nails make pottery work difficult.

Students are required to wear appropriate comfortable clothing that can get dirty. Closed toe shoes are essential.

Students are required to bring their own towel and apron to each class. Tools and materials are provided.

Students are not to remove any tools or other equipment from the studio.

Class work will take approximately 3 weeks to fire after a term finishes. Students will be notified by email when their work is ready and have 2 weeks to collect their work. Due to space constraints, unless otherwise agreed, uncollected work after this time will be donated to a local charity. Sarah Schembri Ceramics Pty Ltd takes extreme care firing work, however by the nature of ceramics there is always a risk of technical failure for which we cannot be held responsible. We are unable to guarantee that all your work will be successfully fired.

Students agree to give Sarah Schembri Ceramics Pty Ltd unrestricted publishing rights for any photographs or videos taken at classes for marketing purposes. If you would rather not be involved in this please let us know.

It is to the discretion of the teacher to not accept a late arrival to a course if it is potentially detrimental to fellow students. This will be treated as a late cancellation.

Courses are designed to cater to a variety of skill levels and most workshops are suitable for complete beginners to more experienced levels unless otherwise stated in the course outline.
