  • If you cancel your booking more than 14 days before the workshop date you will receive a 50% refund.
  • If you cancel with less than 14 days until the workshop date you will not receive a refund.
  • If you find you are unable to attend one of our workshops, you may of course send someone in your place. Please let us know that person’s name before the workshop so we may welcome them to the class.

As a courtesy, we will re-advertise your place in the shop and online. There is no guarantee it will sell, but if it does, we will issue you a refund or voucher. You may use this voucher towards booking a workshop of your choice or in our shop.
