Frequently Asked Questions
? Can I make more than one project at a workshop? Because of time constraints and the nature of how our DIY workshops run, we limit each person to one project at a time during a scheduled workshop.  We are always adding more dates and workshop projects, please check back with us often to schedule!

 ? Can I bring a friend with me if they are not working on a project?Unfortunately, because of a limited amount of seating and fire code, we are unable to admit any person who has not reserved a spot in our workshop. 

? What are the prices for a workshop? Prices for each workshop are based on the type of workshop being offered. Typically, prices range in price from $35 to $85  depending on the options you choose.

 ? Do I have to pick my project ahead of time? Yes. Project selection and customization information for your project is required at the time of booking on our on-line registration form. Please be sure to double-check your spelling and information to ensure your project stencil (for wood workshops) and materials will be ready for you at the start of your workshop.

? Do you offer refunds? Due to the custom nature of our workshops, registration fees are non-refundable. Registration cancellations made at least 48 hours in advance of a workshop will be able to makeup their project during any workshop.(within 90 days). Cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice may ONLY make up projects during one of the yellow blocks on our class calendar, which may only be one or two days a month on the weekend (within 90 days).No Shows will not be able to makeup their project and will forfeit their registration fee. If you're unable to attend a workshop, we suggest finding someone to come in your place to create your project, so you do not lose your registration fee. You may pick up your project (within 30 days) to make it at home if you're unable to attend a workshop. Please call the studio to make arrangements of reschedule or pickup 941.216.3384
