Cancellation Policy: We are running workshops on a much smaller scale and whilst we appreciate Covid may stop you from coming I’m afraid our 10 day cancellation policy still remains. Our workshops run to support the print studio and we can’t afford to have empty spaces within these workshops. Currently within 10 days of the workshop we cannot refund or move dates for any cancellations made due to personal reasons or covid. I hope you can understand this as being a small business we would hate to stop running workshops due to then not being full. If you don’t feel this policy works for you we would ask to wait and book in the future when we can be more flexible.
