OVERVIEW

This Workshop Terms and Conditions Contract and Liability Waiver ("WCLW") between HESSLER CREATIVE, LLC (“HC") and the registered attendee (“Student”) sets forth the Workshop Description, Schedule, Fees and Liability Waiver.

 

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

The Workshops at Howe Hill Farm are primarily 2-day, creative focused workshops running from May until September, 2020. Workshops will be held in the recently renovated Howe Hill Farm Art Barn, located at 207 Howe Hill Road, Camden, Maine 04843. Some workshops will require students to bring their own equipment or tools, while others will provide all materials. Please be sure to read through the course description to ensure you bring what you need.

 

LUNCH

One-day courses lunch will not be provided. Lunch will be provided for 2-day weekend workshop courses. Students may bring their own lunch if they prefer or travel offsite to get lunch in town. If you have dietary restrictions or serious allergies, please email us at least a week in advance so that we can accommodate. We pride ourselves on preparing healthy meals that use as many fresh, locally-sourced and organic ingredients as possible. Every effort will be made to ensure options are available to students with food limitations. HC assumes no risk or responsibility for student food borne illness or adverse reactions to prepared foods.

CLASS SIZE

CANCELLATIONS

If the minimum student number is not met within 30 days of the course it is HC’s discretion as to whether or not the course will run. If HC decides to cancel the course because of inadequate enrollment, HC will provide full refunds to registered students. Alternatively, students can transfer their tuition to a future Workshops at Howe Hill Farm course.

COVID-19

We have decided to launch these workshops during this uncertain time because we hope the Covid-19 virus is well under control by the summer season. That said, we will make the call 30-days prior to the workshop running if it is safe to move forward. We will follow the CDC and government guidelines and will not take this decision lightly. If it is deemed unsafe to run we will provide full refunds to all students signed up for the course.

 

 

TUITION & FEES

The workshop cost covers tuition, materials fees and lunch (lunch included only for 2-day weekend courses). Full payment is required at booking. Reservations are not confirmed until payment is received.

 

REFUND POLICY

If you need to cancel, please notify us at least 30 days before the start of the workshop. At that time, we will refund your tuition, minus a $125 cancellation fee. Alternatively, you may transfer your full tuition amount to another HC workshop within 18 months (tuition can only be transferred to another Workshop at Howe Hill Farm workshop and not to any other institutions HC teaches at). Cancellations made  cancellations made after 30 days prior will result in forfeit of the full tuition amount or you may transfer to another workshop in the same calendar year. If you are traveling to come to a Workshop we recommend insuring your trip with Travelex insurance so your trip and tuition can be covered in the event of illness or other unforeseen circumstance.

Failure to notify your instructor will mean your acceptance of these terms.
