  • Materials fees (if any) will be paid directly to the instructor just prior to the start of class.
  • In the interest of allowing as many people as possible access to classes, you may purchase only one seat per class.
  • Lessonface allows you to register for more than one class at a time. It does not, however, prevent you from registering for multiple classes that occur at the same time. Please pay careful attention to the dates and times of the classes you select in order to avoid "double booking" yourself. We will not be held responsible for your selection of classes and any conflicts that occur.
  • You may NOT resell the class to someone else. To gift a class, register for the class using the recipients’ email.

NOTIFICATIONS: Email is used to communicate class cancellations, changes, etc. If your email address changes, you are responsible for notifying Lessonface and the Festival of that change. The Festival WILL NOT be held responsible for incorrect email addresses.

  • Registrants are responsible for periodically checking their Lessonface Dashboard and the Festival website for updates.

CANCELLATION OF CLASSES: On rare occasions it may be necessary to cancel a class or several classes due to instructor illness or travel delays. Should this occur, the Festival will notify students as soon as possible via email.

In the event that a class is cancelled, the student will have the option of participating in another scheduled class, providing there is a place available in that class, OR a refund for the class will be given. The Festival WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE for travel or hotel fees incurred by the student or any other fee related to the cancellation. If the student opts for a replacement class, NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN.
