Also it is advisory for all students with long hair to tie it up for every lesson and to wear old appropriate clothing and cover shoes (no leggings, Shorts, Skirts, Dresses, flip flops, open toed shoes, high heels or dolly shoes ) this is for health and safety reasons as we will be working with hot materials and open flames.
