If you are making larger work and know you will need more glass and more kiln space, you are required to make pre-arrangements with Crefeld (you may be charged for the extra glass and kiln usage.)

All artists requiring assistants must bring their own assistants with them. The Studio does not provide any staff to help with making artwork or operating equipment. A staff member will ensure that all equipment is present and turned on, and will let you into the studio and lock up when you are done.
