    Does anyone have a good liability waiver for teaching stained glass and or fused glass?

    Perhaps your insurance company can help.  The have a vested interest in avoiding a claim.

    thank you Stephen, I belong to a coop gallery with a new art education center,  We are  checking with the insurance company but I though that maybe I could expedite things by presenting a standard used by other glass artists.  Our rental liability waiver is iron clad but it does not address some of the hazards stained glass or fused glass present.  I can’t teach there until we do.

    I am in  a different legal jurisdiction, but we only need to carry out a risk assessment and determine how/what we do to cover that risk.  Then the insurance company is happy.

    I should add that in my jurisdiction a waiver has no legal force, as it can and has been argued successfully that the person signing is unlikely to know at the point of signing what they are agreeing to despite what the wording may be.

    thanks again,  something our education center director did not even consider.  In this sue crazy world we would not want to lose what took a small group of artists over 30 years to acquire just to teach a stained glass class.
