Enrolment & Cancellation Policy
To enrol in a Workshop, the enrolment form must be downloaded and forwarded to the Workshop Registrar before the closing date.
Payment of Fees
Enrolment must be accompanied by either the full payment for the workshop or a non-refundable deposit of $20.
If only a deposit has been paid, the remainder of the workshop fee must be paid four weeks before the workshop date to secure a place.
If the enrolment form is sent less than four weeks before the workshop, the full amount of the workshop fee must sent.
Currently workshop fees are payable by cheque, money order, direct deposit or by providing credit card details. Cash will not be accepted except for kits or materials.
There may also be a materials or kit fee. This will be included in the workshop description. This amount, if any, must be paid in cash to the Tutor on the first day of the workshop.
If a Workshop is cancelled by the Guild or the Tutor, a full refund of any fees paid will be made.
If a student withdraws then:
- she/he should check with the Workshop Registrar whether there is a waiting list for that workshop. If there is then the Workshop Registrar will contact the next person on the waiting list and offer them the place. In this case the workshop fees paid by the student who wishes to withdraw will be refunded;
- if there is no waiting list, she/he may be able to find another member who wishes to do the workshop and make a private arrangement to be reimbursed. The originally enrolled student must advise the Workshop Registrar of the name of the substituted student;
- if neither a) nor b) above apply then there will be no refund of the fee paid unless there are extenuating circumstances. Any student wishing to claim extenuating circumstances will need to write to the Education Committee within one month of the Workshop seeking a refund and outlining their claim of exceptional circumstances.
