All students are required to wear closed toed shoes; no exceptions will be made and refunds will not be given. Anyone suspected to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be dismissed immediately and without refund. Hot Glass reserves the right to require the withdrawal of any student whose conduct is deemed detrimental, without refund. Many glass art classes involve working around high heat environments and students who have certain health considerations may not be eligible to take every class at Hot Glass. In our effort to ensure your safety and the safety of others, we require all students to fill out a safety questionnaire. Hot Glass reserves the right to deny access or to remove any student from a class at Hot Glass’ discretion based on our assessment of an individual’s potential risk of injury. Hot Glass will issue a partial refund for any remaining class sessions upon receipt of a doctor’s notice if it is determined you should not participate
Clothing: It is recommended that glassblowers wear cotton or wool clothing rather than nylon or polyester. Part of the reason is the way that natural fibers hold sweat. But nylon can melt in the heat and if it sticks to the skin is very painful. Many glassblowers work in short sleeves and short pants and pull on a cotton sock with the toe cut out to protect the arm when working bigger pieces. Long sleeved cotton tee’s and blue jeans are recommended as good year-round glassblowing wardrobe.
