Running a workshop series of this scope requires a considerable investment in administration, supplies, locations, and instructors. For this reason we have a strict cancellation policy. Be certain you understand our policy before registering.

Student Cancellations

Students who are unable to attend a workshop may send a qualified replacement. We ask that we are notified in advance so that we may welcome the replacement and provide them with all necessary supplies and instructions to successfully complete the class. In the event that a student can not attend a workshop or send a replacement, we will prepare a package containing any hand-outs or instructions from the workshop.

About waiting lists

We maintain waiting lists for popular courses. However, a waiting list does not mean that we can always replace a student who cannot attend a workshop. A certain amount of time is necessary to contact the list and to hear back from candidates. For privacy reasons we cannot share our waiting list with students.
