There are no refunds and, while you can choose to attend all or a portion of the class, the fee is $35 per person. Class size is limited to 50 to ensure everyone has the best possible experience. If you register and cannot attend class for any reason, YOU WILL NOT BE GRANTED A REFUND. But we will miss you.
Is there a discount for families or children?
No, unfortunately there is no special pricing for children or families. The cost is $35 per person. Children and youth of many ages have attended the class and have had a wonderful time. We suggest, however, that you are the best judge of whether your child will find the classroom and practical instructions useful.

Do you provide lunch?
We'd love to but NO, we do not provide lunch, drinks or snacks. Please bring water to stay hydrated and you may wish to bring lunch and/or snacks if you choose. You will have a lunch break and there are many options for grabbing a bite on your way from the classroom venue to Busiek.

We do not cancel the event for weather conditions, OTHER THAN if we, in our sole discretion, deem it unsafe for people to attend the class in extreme weather.
