IMPORTANT Class fees and deposits on wood pieces are non-refundable unless notice of a cancellation is given to me at least 2 weeks prior to a scheduled class and providing that i can fill your space. If you miss a class for whatever reason your deposit if forfeited and you must pay the class fee for a future (if one is scheduled) class. Therefore if you won't be able to attend try to give me ample time to fill your spot. There will be no exceptions. Also, once a wood piece is picked up there will be no refunds. Most of our projects are constructed from pine which is a soft wood and must be stained or sealed ASAP to prevent any drying and cracking of the wood piece. Storage of your wood piece unprotected is very important, ie: do not store near a heater (cracking) or in a damp area (warping). If you should dent your wood piece you can take a heated iron and a damp cloth, place it over the dent and iron out the dent pressing gently.
