Class Policies & Procedures

1. Arrive before class starts. If you are late, you will not be allowed into the class.

Out of respect for instructors and other students, late arrivals are not permitted to participate in class. Our classes are short, and it is unfair to make other people wait or repeat the beginning of class for a late student. If you are late, your class fees will not be refunded. If you know you will be a few minutes late, call the front desk if possible. On occasion, circumstances may allow a class to start a few minutes late for you.

2. Bring your Makerspace badge or photo ID.

Please bring your Makerspace badge whenever you come to the Makerspace; you will need it to access the shop. If you are not a Makerspace member, bring another form of photo ID, such as Emirates ID, driver's license, or school ID.

3. Dress appropriately for the shop area in which you are working.

Makerspace Al Zeina wants to ensure that you build your dreams safely. For this reason, we have designated a dress code and require that safety equipment be worn in certain areas of the shop. Please read the Safety Guidelines in the Equipment Policies & Procedures dress appropriately for your classy.

For your own safety, you will not be allowed to attend class if your attire is deemed inappropriate. If you have any questions about your class or what to wear, please contact our Front Desk. Additional information about required and recommended safety equipment and clothing is listed in the class description online.

4. Be ready to participate. Please turn off your phone or switch to silent mode and join the class.

Your time is important. So is everyone else's. In order to maximize the class experience, you will need to be both physically and mentally present. Give your phone a break… turn it off or switch it to silent mode when you get to class. Students who are disruptive or distracted will be asked to leave the class, and they will need to take it again.
