Classroom or Workshop Expectations

When learning a new hands-on skill, social learning takes place where we all learn from each other. Please help us create a safe and supportive environment in which we can share information, have open discussions and learn from one another.


  • Be respectful to your fellow students, everyone should feel free to ask questions without judgment or ridicule. Disrespectful or rude behavior is not tolerated under any circumstances.
  • Turn off cell phones or put on vibrate. If you need to take a call, please step outside the classroom so others can concentrate or hear the instructor.
  • Come to class on time or set up your studio equipment after the lecture, demonstration, or any group discussion is over.
  • Bring a willingness to learn or at a minimum, a sense of humor. Attitude is everything!
