How Safe Is It?
The reality of it is, glass can be dangerous. There are many dangerous things in our environments (pencils, compasses, base-ball bats, cars). Proper safety introduction and supervision (audience specific), are carefully considered when we design curriculum. We design learning experiences that limit student risk.
One Example of This:
Very Young Artists
Special Needs Artists
We use appropriately sized, pre-fired pieces of glass. The pieces are big enough to avoid choking or nose/ear implantation but small enough to not be used as a weapon – do we know kids, or what? Pre-fired glassl is smooth and won’t hurt even the most tender of fingers.
Your safety concerns are definitely ours.
We will never knowingly expose any of our students (young or old) to any unsafe practice. We are happy to discuss this with you. Be sure and ask!
All students are required to sign a release form.
We really do take safety very seriously,
And also try to balance it with perspective. Consider……
It’s ironic that most glass cuts look just like paper cuts,
And rarely bleed, much.
Statistically, arriving by motorized transportation is far more dangerous.
We provide a handy supply of band-aids and are Red Cross certified in Infant and Adult Red Cross First Aid and CPR, just in case! Just to top it off we are just a few hundred feet from the Urgent Care clinic at Lahaina Gateway.
