Shimmering Studio do not issue refunds on class bookings. We are a small business and it is extremely difficult for us to absorb these costs and keep our class fees low. Our classes require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors. When students ask to cancel or reschedule, we lose money.
If you register for a class and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer you a credit note if you notify us at least 15 days before the class. For example, if your class is on 15th Dec, you must contact us by 1st Dec in order to receive a credit note for a similar course of the same value. After the cut off date for your class, we are unable to offer credits of any kind or honour reschedule requests.
Unfortunately we cannot to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness, travel, or family emergency. If you cannot attend a class, we suggest giving your spot to a friend or relative!
Shimmering Studio requires a minimum enrolment to go forward with a class. If Shimmering Studio must cancel a class for any reason you will be offered a full refund or we will offer you a place in the class the next time it is scheduled. If this happens, we'll try to work with you to choose new class dates that fit your schedule.
We suggest that you arrive at the course at least 5 minutes before the start. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late you will not be able to take part in the class and you will not be able to move to another class or receive a refund. Classes start promptly and we have a lot of content to cover especially in the short courses. We cannot hold the class back if you are running late and we may not be able to go over what you have missed. It is important everyone is puntual as it is inconsiderate to the other paying students if we have to stop and go back to explain things to late students.
*Liability. Our liability is only for the cost of the class. If the class is cancelled students are liable for any costs incurred including materials purchased in advance, travel or accommodation. We are not liable for any accidents or injuries that may occur whilst you are in the class and in our property.
*Pricing: we reserve the right to alter our pricing at any time and the prices are current at the time of booking. We are under no obligation to issue a refund or gift voucher for any class booked outside an offer or sale we are holding.
*You are strictly prohibited to use any of the class sheets, designs, photography or materials from our classes for your own classes or business
*By viewing our website or placing an order you are agreeing to our Terms & Conditions.
