what is your cancellation/return policy?
Due to the custom nature of many of our workshops, we do not offer refunds. We understand that life happens. If you are unable to attend your reserved workshop, please be sure to give us a minimum of 48 hours advance notice. We will happily reschedule you for any future workshop of equal or lesser value.
how do I save a spot for a workshop?
you can purchase a seat online. Walk-in's are welcome to most workshops unless it is previously sold out or if the class requires supplies and we don't have enough (if we don’t know you’re coming, we can’t purchase supplies for you). If you're planning to walk-in, we typically suggest calling ahead to make sure there are still seats available.
i'd like to give you feedback about the workshop i took.
we love feedback! your feedback is extremely important to us. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
are there discounts on refills if I bring back a container I previously made a bundle out of?
yes! we offer discounts if you bring one of our containers back to us to refill.
