Being Prepared For Your Foundry Class
Foundry classes are usually held on the first floor of The Crucible studios.
Students must arrive for class in all-natural fiber clothing, long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long hair must be tied back. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not allowed around machines, equipment, or processes that can produce hot fragments, sparks, or flames.
In Foundry, students will likely only being around flames on pouring days, but The Crucible requests students always arrive in studio safe clothing when working. Layers are encouraged as the studio can be very cold or very hot. Foundry classes can have additional sessions to get ready for the pour, please read the class descriptions carefully.
