use large pieces of canvas cloth that fit each work table and some smaller
pieces as well. We label them RED and White Clay. When they are dirty I
take them home and wash them with my studio clothes. Before I wash them the
first time I zig zag them like crazy so they won't run. I hate it when you
roll strings in your work. The canvas is an expense for the outlay but mine
have lasted over 6 years so far. >>

We use rolls of canvas backed wallpaper that we cut to size. It is
inexpensive and has lasted 17 yrs since I have been at the school. It lays
flat and I cut them up to fit the projects that the students are doing. The
kids always want to use the pretty wallpaper print side, and it is a good
lesson to explain why we use the canvas back reverse.
