  7. Protective, enclosed footwear needs to be worn to classes, ie no thongs or sandals.
  8. Aprons or old clothes should be worn, and hair tied back for safety.
  9. Parents or caregivers may remain with children through lessons so long as they do not personally participate in making their own works. Parents may be welcome to help with the activities individually as organized by the teacher.
