Cancellation Policy
Cancellations received with 48 hours notice of the workshop will be eligible for a 50% refund.  Unfortunately cancellations received within 48 hours do not allow time to refill that place and so no refund can be issued.  If we have to cancel, we will provide as much notice as possible and you will be entitled to a full refund or to move to a vacant space on an alternative same value workshop of your choice.
