For our Public Classes: Full cash Refunds will ONLY be given to those that cancel their reserved seats 48 hours or more in advance.  If you cancel 24 hours in advance you can receive store credit for the class. This will be sent to you via email, if we are notified AT LEAST 24 hours in advance, so we are able to offer your seat to another customer. All no shows will forfeit their payment and option for a store credit. 

For Private Parties: Private Party Hosts are to refer to their private party booking email & private party EVENT AGREEMENT regarding the $150 cancellation fee.  Party hosts are financially responsible for ensuring the room minimum has been met & paid regardless of attendance. Guests of a private party can receive a store credit if we have been notified with at least 24 hours notice. All no shows will forfeit their payment and option for a store credit. If a guest should cancel their seat, it is still up to the party host to ensure the room minimum has been met/paid prior to the start of the party.

Twist at Home Kits: No Refunds or Store Credits will be given for Twist at Home Kits. These are made to order.

Do I need to be on time to our class? 
Yes! As a matter of fact we encourage you to come 15-30 minutes early to unclork, unwind, apron up, and find your spot! This way we are ready to start the class on time! Think of our timed events like going to the movies - If you arrived late to the movie you would miss out on the start and it may be hard to follow what's going on in the story. Well, the same thing happens at our studio during one of our events. So, that's why it's important to be on time so you don't miss out on the full experience you paid for. We want everyone to enjoy their night and have the best possible time!  

Late policy: 

Painters who are late will be playing catch up.  Just like the movie theater wouldn't start the movie over if you were late, we're not able to start at the beginning for late arrivals. Since our events are timed, you may not finish.

Larger classes will have a Floor Artist there to assist you, but not all classes have Floor Artsits. 

If you are arriving late, 15 minutes or more, you may choose to reschedule to another class or take a store credit.

 If I have a large group of people coming can we all sit together?

Absolutely!  When reserving your seats there is a special notes section where you can tell us who you want to sit with. No need to reserve together just be sure to fill out who you'd like to sit with and we'll take care of the rest.

Can my friends/family come sit with me and NOT paint?
Due to our limited seating and our goal to provide everyone with the BEST experience possible we have a strict NO SPECTATOR policy on ALL our public events including our family/kid friendly public events. Anyone including parents/guardians staying in the studio during class must have their own paid seat. We also do not allow toddlers or infants. We recommend that EVERYONE paints! Who wants to watch paint dry anyway! :)

We can acommodate a limited number of non-painting guests during Private Parties of younger painters if space allows. Please call the studio during office hours to inquire about more details.
