Reminders for All Students
Please write the class dates in your calendar.
Purchase materials at least 30 minutes prior to the class.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than your class is scheduled.
For your safety: tie your hair back, wear cotton (non-synthetic) clothing and closed-toe shoes. » Bring an apron; we use many chemicals that can harm clothing.
Torch classes (silversmithing, glass bead making, etc.) are designed for students aged 16 years or older. The minimum age limit for other classes is up to the class teacher’s discretion.
UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED, our class prices include the supplies required to create a project. We strongly recommend that our students arrive at the store in advance of the class, in order to acquire their supplies ahead of time.
SOME OF OUR CLASSES DO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH A FEW BASIC MATERIALS * Basic materials usually consist of economy bead string, base metal wire and findings, and simple glass beads. These classes DO NOT INCLUDE stone beads, precious metal beads and findings, Swarovski crystals, silk beading thread, etc. Such items are available for purchase in our store. The variety of colours/styles available is limited.
Please ask our staff in advance of a class if you have any questions (or want recommendations) about the tools and/or materials you'll need to create a project that you will LOVE!
Some of our silversmithing classes require a toolkit returnable for a refund minus a $25 fee. The toolkit is returnable within 7 days of the last class.
Cancellations & Transfers
30 Days before a class the appropriate class supplies have been purchased and the teacher has made accommodations to teach the class. Many of our instructors live outside of town and some travel from other countries.
Over 30+ days notice: Full Refund or Can Transfer to another class of your choice, or have a Store Credit applied to your account. This never expires.
Under 30 Days Notice: Transfers or Store Credit on your account only.
7 Days before Class: No Refunds and No Transfers. Let us know ASAP so we can try to sell your spot for you if there is a waitlist. Many classes ran because you signed up and may be one of the only students. The teacher has already made travel and teaching arrangements, and the kits have been ordered and prepared for you etc. The teacher will still be paid for your class fee if you cancel. You are welcome to pick up your kit of supplies and handout if the kit is included in the class fee. All classes come with a handout and some classes have a video tutorial.
You may transfer classes only once, or you will be given a credit on account.
Once you have attended and started a class but cannot finish the rest of the dates, your spot cannot be filled and cannot be refunded. The teacher is not responsible to catch you up for missed classes. In multiple week classes, you can catch up in the next class.
