Craft Center Re-Opening Policies Acknowledgement
As we are all aware, COVID-19 is highly contagious and singular actions alone cannot overcome the threat that this virus poses. To this end, the Center and its studios have implemented many changes in accordance with the Massachusetts government’s Mandatory Safety Standards for Workplaces (attached) and our partner, Worcester State University’s Fall 2020 Safe Return Plan (

Everyone accessing the studio is asked to recognize and accept their role as part of a greater community effort that is required to help maintain the safety of all members by being proactive about:

1.) Health self-assessment, 2.) Following all studio guidelines, 3.) Participating fully in the support of sanitization efforts that are required to maintain a healthy work environment.

We’re all in this together!

Please be sure to read through the Worcester Center for Crafts' Fall Re-Opening Guide specific to your course's studio (Metals/Ceramics/Glass) on our COVID-19 Response Page (, which details:

1.) The protective measures that the Center and its staff and faculty have taken to safely provide educational programming.
2.) The precautions and rules we are asking our students to commit to taking and abiding by while on the premises.
3.) Our policies related to cancellations due to illness
