    Open Studio for Enrolled Students

    Students MUST have an active registration in a course in glass, jewelry, enamels, or ceramics in order to register for Open Studio. Students must register for Open Studio before attending.

    Use of any or all of the posted hours in the appropriate studio, for self-directed practice time. Students may initiate or complete work, within the scope of the class in which they are currently registered. Hours are self-tracked by signing in and out of each period you attend, and each student may use as few or as many hours, during scheduled times, for the duration of the session. The Open Studio session expires with each course session. Non-matriculating students may use the first week of the following session to complete work during Open Studio.

    Metals Studios students must have an assigned safety monitor during all Open Studio periods.

    Studio Use

    Studio use is permitted by enrolled students only. Guests, family members, and non-registrants are not permitted to use studio equipment, materials, or supplies. Periodically the Crafts Center will have Open Houses that allow public access to studios and equipment with proper supervision and at the Crafts Center’s discretion. A student may not use the studios to conduct lessons or instruct non-registered students.

    Equipment Safety

    The Crafts Center reserves the right to restrict a student’s access to equipment at any time it deems the use of such equipment unsafe.

    Inclement Weather Policy

    The Worcester Center for Crafts generally follows the Worcester State University inclement weather policy relative to building closing and class cancellation. HOWEVER, for best information please check our Facebook page. We will always post general cancellation of classes there.
