Cancellations and Refunds

Any cancellations must be made at least 1 week before the scheduled workshop for a full refund.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the ceramics process, we cannot guarantee the results of the firing. While we’ll do our best to guide you through the making process to get the best results, pieces may crack, break or change color in the kiln, and we cannot offer refunds for those pieces.
