Classes

Class spaces are limited and must be paid 2 weeks in advance via cash or check. This is done so that we can make sure that we have the materials and tools ordered and on hand. You can bring a class payment to any meeting or anytime that the shop is open. Class payments are non-refundable, but can be credited back via scheduling a class at a different time if something comes up if 24 hours notice is given - otherwise it will be viewed as a no-show and that payment will be still applied for the missed class. Any scheduling changes must be made no less than 1 week in advance.

You can bring a class payment to any meeting or anytime that the shop is open. This is done so that we can make sure that an instructor is available to be scheduled. Basic cab class payments are non-refundable. However if something comes up - as long as we are given 24 hours notice - we can reschedule you at no extra cost. Otherwise it will be viewed as a no-show and that payment will be still applied for the missed class. Any non-emergency schedule changes MUST be made at least 1 week in advance. Instructors are taking time out of their busy lives to help out the club and teach our new members, and their time is important!
