2022 Workshop Season Update:

Our in-person workshops will continue in 2023.  Proof of vaccination will not be required in order to be on the ESSA campus.  


These guidelines represent an agreement between you and ESSA and by registering for a workshop you agree to follow these guidelines.

  • Air Quality: UV air cleaning systems have been installed in the central air return vents in our Founders Building (2D Studio), Hill House (Administration Building), and Windgate Building Wood Studio (Lathe Room, Machine Room and Bench Room).  HEPA filters are available to run in all areas.
  • Cleaning & Safety: Studios will follow strict cleaning routines and sanitizing stations have been installed.
  • Expectations: We expect that if you are feeling ill, running a fever, or have been diagnosed with any virus or contagious illness, that you will not come to the ESSA campus.  We will reach out to everyone prior to their workshop with the most up-to-date procedures and protocols. We are all looking forward to in-person learning so we must all do our part to make it happen!

Face Coverings 

Everyone on the ESSA campus is welcome to wear an appropriate face cover over the mouth and nose if they wish to do so.  ESSA will also provide face shields and safety goggles for those that wish to use them.

Before coming to the ESSA campus, please self-screen for any COVID-19 symptoms- or symptoms of any other contagious disease.  You are encouraged to take your temperature and stay home if you have a fever over 100.4.  If you are experiencing any symptoms of any contagious disease, or believe you are at risk of exposure, please stay home.

We will continue to monitor the CDC guidelines and modify our regulations on an ongoing basis.  We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our campus safe for all those who visit once we resume on-campus workshops.
