Studio Rules

1. Please be advised that you will be held accountable for any damaged tools or equipment.​

2. Studio rental is available on a first come, first served basis. Please call GRT at 317-359-9006 to schedule studio rental time. If you email a requested time, it is not guaranteed until it is written on the posted schedule in the front office and you have received confirmation.​

4. Renters must fill out the posted form to track hours worked and glass used. ​

5. Renters will be billed at the end of the month for any rental time and glass usage that has not been paid for that month.​

6. If you are not able to pick up your work by the end of the month, you must make arrangements with GRT Glass Design to have your glass weighed and temporarily stored. ​

7. Rental cancellations need to be made as early as possible so that rental time can be used by other renters. Less than 24 hours may result in a cancellation fee.

8. Shop pipes and puntys are marked with a single strip of red tape and are available for renters to use. Any pipe or punty not marked in this way are private property and should not be used without permission from the owner. Any other shop tools (jacks, tweezers, shears, map gas, etc.) should only be used by renters paying to use them at a fee of $5.00 per day. Tool rental is included in the price for private lessons and classes. ​

17. If you change the temperature on the Kugler box, please put it back to 950 degrees when done. ​
