Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel or reschedule your workshop, simply email or call Sarah 48 hours prior to the workshop start time. You can postpone the workshop to a later date. If the workshop needs to be canceled and no materials have been purchased and no design time has been spent on the project, the full deposit can be returned. Often when we book mural painting days for the students we pencil in three days even though we may only need two days. This is in-case we have to postpone a day due to the weather (rain, wind or extreme heat).
