Cancellation Policy

Cancellations will increase the business’s outgoings without a full class (minimum 3 paying students). 

The viability of our Glass Craft requires constant maintenance whilst the furnace is in operation. (sustain a minimum temp of 1000degree celsius). A single cancellation often will create cascading losses in resources, human and natural.

We hope you understand refunds can not be processed.

If Tamborine ​Glassblowing: Our minimum class size for most classes is three persons, unless otherwise noted in the class description. In the unlikely event that we cancel a class for any reason, those who have registered will receive a full refund or an opportunity to transfer their registration fee to a different class. If a class is cancelled we are not responsible for reimbursing travel costs or other reservation fees.

If You Cancel or No-Show: Our class fees include a $50- non-refundable registration fee, which is forfeited by those who cancel a registration. Students who cancel a registration 14 or more days prior to the beginning of a class will receive a refund of the class fee, minus the $25 registration fee. Cancellations made fewer than 14 days prior to the beginning of a class will not be refunded. In order to keep class costs low for all, we make no exceptions to this policy. NO SHOWS will not receive a refund or transfer of any kind, as we were unable to fill your seat and there are costs associated with preparing for your lesson. PRIVATE LESSONS are pre-paid and non-refundable. We are happy to work with you to reschedule if you call at least 14 days prior to your scheduled lesson, but otherwise you will forfeit any tuition or deposits that you paid for that session. No exceptions.

An Unpaid No-Show: If you have not pre-paid for your class or session, there will be a $25 fee (per person) before you can attend another one of our classes. We try to collect payment at the time of registration, but this cannot always be done. This does not release the student from their verbal or written agreement that they will attend at the previously arranged time and place. Our instructor has made arrangements to be there, as well as materials and a work space has been prepared. Those considerations cost time and money.

If You Need To Reschedule: 

Our class fees include a $50- non-refundable registration fee. (Booking/Admin Contribution)
