The Crucible strives to create an environment in which respects its participants’ physical and emotional well-being. Students are expected to conduct themselves with respect for the individuals, the organization, and the facility at all times. Students will review Studio Rules and Group Agreements of The Crucible during their first class. The director reserves the right to enforce these rules and anyone in violation will be subject to consequences including, but not limited to, immediate dismissal from classes without refund.

STUDIO ACCESS LABS
Studio Access Labs provide an opportunity to hone the skills you’ve learned in class, without having to spend a fortune setting up your own shop. Finish that elusive project, or start a new one in a specified area at The Crucible.
Studio Access Lab time is monitored but not instructional. You must be a member to access these labs. Pre-qualification in an area or instructor approval are required if you have not taken a class in the area. You may only use the studio area for which you have signed up. You may use it as much as you like during the scheduled hours.
