Cancellation and Refund Policies

A great deal of staff time and expense is invested into the preparation and organization of individual classes. It is difficult and oftentimes impossible to recover costs and/or find a student to replace a cancelled registrant and so our cancellation and refund policies reflect this. Full refunds, minus $15 administrative fee for single day classes and a $30 admin fee for multi-day classes, are given to registrants who cancel with at least 7 days notice of the event. Cancellations made less than 7 days of the event forfeit a refund.


We understand that emergencies and unforeseen circumstances do happen.As such we offer the courtesy of transferring your fees to a different class within six months of the originally scheduled class minus the respective admin fee. For example, a single day $50 workshop cancelled the day before may be transferred to a multi-day $100 workshop the following month. The total balance due would be $60 ($100 multi day – $50 single day transfer + $10 single day admin fee). Cancellations made within 24 hours of the scheduled class start time and no-shows, forfeit the option of a fee transfer however a 20% off voucher may be given towards your next class of equal value.
