Refund Policy


We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!

I had a great time in this Modern Calligraphy course. Margaret Fu was patient and informative, giving everyone individual attention and assistance. The class was easy-going and went by fast. We left with practice materials, useful tips, ink, a nib, and a nib holder. I would definitely recommend this class to others.

Most of the workshop was self-guided. I was hoping there would be a framed finished piece...

The teacher was very friendly and knowledgable, and made it look so easy! But she was helpful and really broke it down step by step. I would even take this class again!
