Workshops can be booked online, in the studio or by phone. The times and content of each workshop is shown on our website, in our weekly newsletter, in our printed Workshop Programme and on Social Media as applicable.

Workshops must be paid for at time of booking. Only full payment will guarantee your place. Prices are per person.

In the event of your cancelling a workshop, a refund will be given only if we are able to fill your place.

Materials are included in the price of the workshop unless otherwise stated.

A requirements list may be issued for some classes, if there is anything on the list you do not have, we may be able to lend it to you.

Tea and coffee will be available during the class. If you are attending a full day workshop, you are welcome to bring your own lunch to eat in the studio or the Village grounds, or visit the Tiptree Tea rooms to purchase food.

While we try hard not to cancel a workshop, this is sometimes inevitable due to circumstances beyond our control. You will be given as much notice as possible and a
full refund if this does happen.
