BCGC is implementing steps to make sure our in person classes are as safe as possible for students.

  • Classes are currently limited to 6 students, or 6 family units. Family units are defined as folks who have been sharing the same living space. No more than three people per family unit.
  • All classes will be held in our hot shop which is 2000 sq/ft.
  • Each student/family unit will have their own table and their own tools and supplies, which will be cleaned before and after class.
  • Students are requested to enter the building through our garage doors which will be open.
  • Students are encouraged to wear face masks.
  • Students who are symptomatic or who have tested positive for Covid-19 will be asked to stay home and reschedule for another class. Full refund less a $10 processing fee will be given. We hope you get well soon.
  • Students will be asked to maintain a six-foot distance from each other whenever possible.

We will continue to update our class procedures according to best CDC guidance.
