Workshop Student Commitments
All students planning to attend a class with Joshua the Jeweler must carefully read and agree to abide by the following commitments.
Clean up- I will clean up after myself and put back tools and materials at the end of my class
Respect others - I will respect others and keep my behaviour and language kind and family friendly
Ask permission - I will ask permission before using any tools, materials, or opening any drawer or cabinet.
Follow instructions - I will carefully listen to and abide by all instructions given.
Take your time - I will be patient and careful, being aware of my surroundings and potential dangers.
I will do my best to ensure the shop is as safe as possible, however, metalsmithing is inherently dangerous and could result in serious injury.* Also to maintain a safe environment, students may be removed from a class for dangerous behavior.** By submitting this form you agree that you understand and accept these risks.
* Hazards in the shop may include but are not limited to strong acids, flammables, open flames, pinch hazards, heavy objects, sharp objects, abrasives, fumes, laser radiation, rotary power tools, and impact hazards. Minor injuries are common including burns, cuts, scrapes, bruises, and allergic reactions. In extremely rare circumstances serious injury which could lead to long term harm or even death is possible.
** Dangerous behavior includes anything that could cause physical harm or significant property damage, as well as the verbal expression of intent to cause such harm even if it is not immediately acted upon. A single warning will be given, but if behavior continues the student will be removed. No refunds can be provided in this case.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out for clarification prior to signing this form.
