A friendly reminder that masks are mandatory in our teaching kitchen, so please come prepared. If you come with a face shield or plastic visor, you will still be required to wear a mask underneath.  Please do not attend class if you or anyone in your party are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, other than those that you would normally due to allergies or pre-existing health conditions. COVID-19 symptoms include: fever, shortness of breath, loss of sense of taste and smell, dry cough or sore throat.  

In order to safely resume classes in Duchess Atelier, we have implemented the following safety precautions: 

  • Sanitizer buckets on each station which will allow for frequent cleaning. 
  • Classes will consist of stations with either single students or pairs that have signed up together.  Students will not be paired with someone they don’t know. 
  • No sharing of tools or equipment between stations to prevent cross-contamination. 
  • New video camera and monitor which will allow students to better see what the teacher is doing.
