TERMS & CONDITIONS
We take bookings in advance for a predetermined, fixed date cycle. New students can join classes at any time during a cycle- please call or email for availability and prices.
For pre-paid class cycles you must book for your preferred weekly class, for which we will reserve your space. Missed classes during any pre-paid period are not refundable or transferable to either the next cycle, or another person. However, if you miss a class you can attend another class, on another day at the same venue, if there is space. Please email to check availability.
Drop in classes must be paid before the class.
We may use substitute teachers to cover holidays, sickness and absence for professional development.
In the rare event that during a cycle of classes we have to cancel classes for a week or more, for any reason, we will extend the cycle by the corresponding amount of time. (This does not include closure for weather events or force majeure). No refunds will be given if a student cancels their booking or misses classes for any reason.
Cancellations within 48 hours of a booking will incur a 50% fee if a mutually convenient time cannot be rearranged.
Refunds cannot be made if you give notice of your inability to attend less than 30 days before the workshop.
