Resuming Appointment-Only Operations 5/15

**GROUPONS ARE AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN HONORED BEYOND EXPIRATION DATE WITH US**

We are slowly resuming appointment-only operations beginning Friday May 15, but still rescheduling workshops by request. We will be holding small group workshops of no more than 4 persons as we always have, but with increased social distancing and of course enhanced sanitation procedures. With your cooperation and some good sense we are confident in the safety of the environment in the studio. This includes MANDATORY wearing of masks while in the building whenever possible. We ask if you are presenting symptoms or if you have been possibly exposed to COVID-19 that you go ahead and reschedule. We will also be checking body temperatures with a touch free IR sensor and those presenting sypmtoms will not be allowed to enter the building. To those worried about sharing blowpipes there is no reason to worry as there are more than a few other ways to inflate the glass. We have sanitized extension tubes, compressed air, hand pump, you can even choose to make a solid glass object where no blowing is involved but you still get all the hands on fun of working with glass and even make some bubbles too.  Frankly we don’t want your germs in or on our pipes either, and never have! Its up to you and you can decide when you arrive, but certainly nobody is mouthing up pipes anymore!  We also are sanitizing commonly touched surfaces, areas, and tools as frequently as necessary.  No unpaid spectators are permitted, except in the case of one adult accomplanying one or more minor participants. This has been a long standing policy buy we will be very strict on this given the current situation.  Pickup hours have not yet been determined but will be seperate from workshop days to limit traffic and prevent crowding in our entryway.  We still have all the items made before the shut down as well.  

*Failure to cooperate with any of our safety measures in place during your visit is a forfeiture of your ticket and there will be no refunds. *

TO FIND AND REQUEST A NEW DATE YOU CAN USE THE SCHEDULE AS A REFERENCE, ALMOST LIKE MAKING A NEW RESERVATION, BEING SURE TO ADJUST THE SIZE OF YOUR GROUP ACCORDINGLY, AND THEN CHOOSE A FEW TIMES SHOWN AS AVAILABLE AND EMAIL THEM TO GROUPONOCG@GMAIL.COM .
