Commonly asked questions about our classes and studio
What if I need to cancel?
All class registrations are final. We require a 72 hour advance cancellation notice in order to receive credit for a future workshop. Because our instructors supply materials for each participant in advance, cancellations less than 72 hour in advance will not result in a class credit, but you can gift your spot to a friend and have them go in your place. No refunds will be given.
There may be instances when a class does not meet minimum enrollment and has to be cancelled. In these cases a full refund will be issued.
Is there an age limit for classes?
Unless otherwise indicated, our workshops are designed for adults and older teens as they may require the use of sharp tools and detailed instruction. Children 12-16 years old require the presence of an adult parent or guardian participant. At this time, unless a workshop is specified as such, children under 12 are not permitted.
Where will I park?
We have an on-site parking lot that we share with the cafe, tattoo shop and taqueria.
Will there be snacks?
We serve soft beverages, wine and light nibbles at each workshop/class. For longer workshops and classes you may choose to bring a bagged lunch (we have a refrigerator and microwave oven for your use). There is also a taqueria, coffee shop, and Gorilla BBQ next door.
What are your open hours?
Our open hours are during craft classes and events and by appointment. We are not a retail store with regular open hours. But when we have a workshop or event our doors are open! To be notified of our workshops and pop-up sale events be sure to subscribe to our newsletter here.
