Class/Workshop Participant Cancellation Policy
We know "life happens" and sometimes changes to your class registration need to happen and as a valued customer we are able to offer the following. Please note that accommodating short notice changes is costly for us as supplies preparation, instructor & staffing fees and the loss of revenue from vacant workshop space(s) forfeit us the opportunity to fill short notice cancellations. For cancellations 1 week or greater we first look to re-book your class or workshop at time of cancellation. If a re-booking is not possible, an in-store credit studio account will be set-up for you and your registration purchase will be applied for future use towards an alternate future class/workshop registration or it can be use for shopping with us. For cancellations 72 hours or less, due to the costs of set up, supplies prep, staffing/instructor fees, and the inability for us to re-sell your workshop space(s) on short notice your cancellation will unfortunately have to be considered a forfeited opportunity. Please contact us either by email email@example.com or call the studio 780-739-1112 to advise us of and class or workshop registration changes you many have.
Participants that No Show
No shows are considered forfeited opportunities and the above policy does not apply.
Special Event Cancellations
Private & Special Events are Non-Refundable and require a 50% deposit at time of booking. This deposit is non-refundable and allows our studio to secure the date, staffing and speciality materials required. The remaining 50% is required on the day of the event. We are unable to refund a cancellation for a private booking once it is paid for. After receiving deposit payments, we prepare glass for your group and schedule staff accordingly. Participants that No Show for a special event, are considered forfeited opportunities and all participant special event fees apply.
