Workshop Payment and Cancellation Policy

As the guild contracts with out-of-town instructors months in advance for the workshops and there is a cost involved, following is the policy dealing with payment and cancellations of workshop participation.

  1. In order to reserve a space in a workshop the Guild requires payment in full upon signup to secure your spot in the workshop.
  2. If there is a material cost associated with the workshop, payment is due on the day of the workshop.
  3. There will be no refunds for workshops unless the workshop itself is cancelled. Participants may sell (or gift) their space to another member including those on the waitlist. Those on the waitlist are to be given priority.
  4. Non-members may sign up for Guild-sponsored workshops providing all members on the waiting list have been accommodated. Non-members will pay an additional amount per workshop day to be enrolled in Guild-sponsored workshops (additional amount will be determined by the Education Committee for each workshop).
