At SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery, the safety of our staff and participants is of utmost importance. As a safety precaution, we do not offer glass making programming in our glass blowing studio after 12 pm on days when the ambient outside temperature is forecasted to be 100°F (37.8°C) or greater. Our glass blowing studio is not climate controlled and operates at a high temperature, making it important to consider the safety of individuals working with equipment at 2100°F (1150°C) under extreme external heat conditions.
a. Temperature Threshold: Glass making programming will not be scheduled or will be suspended in our glass blowng studio after 12 pm on days when the forecasted ambient outside temperature reaches or exceeds 100°F (37.8°C).
b. Participant Safety: This policy is implemented to ensure the safety of both our staff and participants. High temperatures in the studio environment can pose health risks, and working with molten glass under such conditions can be dangerous.
c. Rescheduling: In the event that a class is affected by this policy due to extreme heat, SiNaCa Studios will make every effort to reschedule the class to a more suitable date and time. Participants will be informed in advance of any rescheduling and provided with alternative options.
d. Advance Notice: SiNaCa Studios will monitor weather forecasts regularly, and when a temperature-related cancellation or rescheduling is necessary, affected participants will be notified as soon as possible. We recommend that participants also stay informed about local weather conditions.
This temperature-related safety precaution is in place to prioritize the well-being of our community members and ensure that glass making classes can be conducted safely and comfortably. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering to this policy.
