2022 FSU CERAMIC LAB LIMITED STUDIO/KILN SCHEDULE

***Due to Covid 19, for the safety of faculty, staff, and students, the Ceramic Studio will have limited access during the Spring 2022 semester. In addition to the limited hours, there will be a strict limit of 1-3 people within certain areas of the Ceramic Studio space. It is required that you wear masks within the space and remain socially distant to others who may occupy the space.
To access the ceramic studio space, you MUST reserve a block of time within our online calendar system. 
For Kiln access (for those who have permission to fire their own kilns), in addition to reserving the kiln with the online calendar, you must also reserve the kiln room (for loading/unloading purposes).
Please use our online schedule for all future reservations.
