Bookings Cancellation Policy
Cancellations made ten days or more, prior to your workshop or course start date can be rescheduled or receive a full refund in the form of a gift voucher.
Cancellations made less than ten days of your workshop or course start date can only be rescheduled or refunded in the form of a gift voucher, if your place can be filled.
Cancellations made within two days of your workshop date are non-refundable.
If a workshop or course needs to be cancelled by Beck Davies Ceramics (e.g. due to illness or unforeseen circumstances), you will be offered a full refund or an option to reschedule.
In our 6 week courses you will be able to get only one make up class if you should miss a class. Due to time constraints and popularity of classes we are unable to offer any more than one 2 hour make up session in a Term.
If at any time you have concerns or questions about these conditions, please contact us via email prior to purchase.
