It also tends to run a bit chilly in the workshop, as it is in a warehouse, so dress in layers and wear thick-soled shoes.

Can I get a refund for my ticket?

Refunds are available up to 7 days before the event.

Refunds will be offered in the event of the event being cancelled, alternative dates will be offered if appropriate.

Event

This is because they pay practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.
