Courses – Terms & Conditions

Places on a course are only secured on receipt of full payment, with booking via our online calendar. In the case of a gift voucher, the recipient should use the code on their voucher to book a place using our online calendar.

You will receive an email confirmation of your online booking. Pre-course/event information will usually be sent by email in advance including any relevant information for the day.

Please wear clothing suitable for a workshop environment. Light clothing in natural fibres is best (no floaty tops or dangling belts that could be caught on equipment) and enclosed shoes, such as trainers (no sandals or flip flops). Long sleeves are preferable. Please remove jewellery and tie back long hair.

For cancellations made four weeks or more in advance of the course date, we offer a 70% refund or one free date change. For cancellations made between two and four weeks in advance of the date, we offer a 50% refund or one date change with a £50 administration fee. If we receive less than two weeks’ notice, we are unable to offer a refund or date change. If a date change has been requested and confirmed, we cannot offer any further refunds or date changes on a subsequent cancellation for the same booking.

Gift Vouchers

They are valid for one year from the date of purchase, which is shown at the foot of the voucher. This means that the course must be booked and the course completed within the 12 months of validity.

Courses are inclusive of all basic materials and safety equipment. All items produced on the course by students are theirs to keep. See delivery section below.

Delivery of coursework
Owing to the annealing processes involved with hot glassmaking, coursework cannot be taken home at the end of the day. Work is available to be collected, usually on or after the Thursday following a weekend course.  Alternatively, we can package and ship work to a UK mainland address for a fee of £15 for one person, or £20 for two people taking the course together. We can also quote for shipping overseas if required.

Class Size
Class sizes can be found in then course description and vary from 6 to 16 depending on the course profile. This allows for an intensive learning experience and plenty of individual attention, but on occasions there may be intermediate or advanced students working on the same day as other courses.

Safety Briefing
All courses begin with a detailed safety briefing and all students are asked to sign a form confirming they have listened to, and understood, the briefing.

Adam Aaronson Glass Studio reserves the right to postpone, or cancel the date of courses should it become necessary and for whatever reason. Students will be notified as soon as possible and alternative dates will be arranged or a full refund given.

Course Admission
Adam Aaronson Glass Studio reserves the right to refuse to admit any person who in our opinion is not in a condition to safely undertake the course. We also reserve the right to terminate a course, or exclude an individual, for any improper or unacceptable behaviour. Should this be the case, no fees will be refunded.

We reserve the right to use on our website, or for publicity purposes, any photographs we might take during a course, including those of course participants. Students may take photographs during the course where safety permits.
