Once students complete orientation sessions, they are granted card access to the building 3 shop spaces,
and are qualified to work in N51 as well. A limited range of self-service work is approved upon completion of
shop orientation. However, shop users must get training on all machines, tools, and processes
that they are not recently practiced in - experience in other shops does not automatically qualify as relevant
experience in this shop.
Shop users are added to a webmoira email list (email@example.com) which we use for all general shop-related
communication. Users are expected to read and understand (or ask about) all communication from shop staff.
To contact us for any reason (questions are always encouraged), users should email firstname.lastname@example.org. Emailing
individual staff is allowed, but usually much less efficient.
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, COVID-RELATED PROCEDURE MUST BE FOLLOWED TO RETAIN SHOP ACCESS - SEE MORE DETAIL ON ABOUT PAGE.
Shops are currently open only during staffed weekday time blocks, which are reflected on the individual shop room schedules/sign up
sheets (see ABOUT page). Curricular shop use (as well as studio use) is only allowed during these blocks,
and shops are required to be staffed for any use within them. Shop users will have card access to building 3 spaces during those time
blocks after completing orientation, and can enter N51-160 when it is staffed (card access to N51-160 is reserved for staff).
More information about current Covid-related use requirements are on ABOUT page.
