The normal charges are as follows:

 I offer a weekly class on mornings, 10am – 12noon and evenings, 7pm – 9pm at a cost of £20 per 2 hour session. It is essential to book in advance as my space is limited.

 All day workshops will run from 9.30am – 4.30pm and will cost £85. This includes tuition, some practice materials, homemade refreshments and lunch. Materials for individual projects will be extra and will be stated when advertising each workshop.

 7.         Payment

I accept payment by bank transfer or cheque. I ask for a 20% deposit on booking and must receive full payment seven days before any workshop or class.

I am a small business so you will understand that I cannot offer a refund or credit if you don’t turn up for a workshop (please don’t cause embarrassment by asking to do so). However, if you are unable to attend, you are welcome to send someone else in your place, providing it’s the same course.

 8.         Cancellation by you of a workshop

Cancellation by you is permitted on reasonable notice in writing and any fees paid will be refunded as follows:

 a)         More than 14 days beforehand – 100% refund

b)         7 to 14 days – 50% refund

c)         Less than seven days notice – no refund        

9.         Cancellation by me

In the event that it is necessary for me to cancel a class or workshop, then you will be offered an alternative time and date convenient to us both.

 10.       Events outside our reasonable control

Such events might include weather conditions, materials not delivered or illness. In the event of cancellation/postponement, if there is a significant delay you will be given the option of cancelling in which case you will receive a full refund.
