2021 Cancelation Policy

At this time, we do not offer refunds on any purchase of creative time, classes, workshops, or boot camps.

If you need to cancel a One-Time Private Class or One-Time Intro to Pottery Class, you can re-book the class without penalty, as long as you cancel your initial reservation at least 24 hours in advance. Cancellations made after the 24-hour mark will not be eligible for an account credit or rescheduling.
If you sign up for a seat in a Mixed Levels 6-Pack, Online Handbuilding Boot Camp, Outdoor Pottery Boot Camp, or Outdoor Kids’ Class and need to cancel your entire registration, we will credit 100% of the class fee to your Mindbody account if you cancel a minimum of 2 weeks / 14 days before the first class. We will credit your Mindbody account 50% of the class fee for cancellations made a minimum of one week / 7 days before the first class. Cancellations after the one week / 7 day mark will not receive credit. This credit does not expire and can be used to sign up for future classes or to purchase products or gift cards.
We cannot offer makeup classes for missed sessions of any of our class series offerings. If you need to miss a class and let us know at least 24 hours before the class time, we will count this as an early cancellation and add a $30 gift credit to your Mindbody account. This is a credit, not a refund. We will only offer this credit for one (1) cancellation per class series per person.
For 2021, we have one exception to our cancellation policy: If you need to cancel your classes at any time due to a positive COVID-19 test result, exposure, or symptoms we will credit your Mindbody account for the balance of the value of the class. As with credits for other cancellations, the cash value will not expire and can be used for any other class or product, including gift cards. This is an honor system, and we trust you to both be cautious about potentially exposing our staff and other students, and to respect how difficult this past year has been for businesses like ours when taking advantage of our cancellation policy.
