- How to find the workshop -
The workshop is located at Gate Fram rural enterprise park. It is a lovely peaceful setting in the heart of the Cheshire countryside and is situated not far from the A51, close to Snugbury's ice-cream and Reaseheath College. The postcode for a sat nav is CW5 6LH. If in doubt put the full address of the workshop into the sat nav as that usually works. If you can use 'google maps' then putting 'Cheshire school of Jewellery' in to the search will also locate it. There is ample parking in the main carpark but also additional spaces situated close to the workshop if you have difficulty walking. Please contact me if you would like details on how to find this car park. Please aim to arrive around 10 - 15 minutes before the start of your session.
** please note the carpark close to the workshop has very limited space so please use the main carpark unless you have difficulty walking**
Booking, refund policy and cancellations
All courses must be booked and paid for in full in advance. I am unable to reserve or hold places on courses. This also applies to specially arranged group bookings. Once a date has been discussed and agreed, full payment is required via the website booking facility to secure that date. This should be done within 7 days of requesting a date and the booking been made available on the courses booking page or invoice issued.
Booking for the majority of courses closes 3-4 days before the event. If insufficient numbers are booked onto a class at this point the course will be cancelled or rescheduled.
Most courses need a minimum of 2 people for the course to run. If a course has to be cancelled due to lack of interest then a full refund will be given or the offer of transferring to another suitable course.
Once a course has been booked you are entitled to 14 days to change your mind and receive a refund. If you cancel beyond the 14 day cooling off period then unfortunately you are not entitled to a refund however in this instance please contact me to discuss your options. Please only book if you except these terms and conditions.
If you begin a longer course of jewellery making and are unable to attend some session I will try to offer you the option of attending an alternative session (within that term). This will be at a time and date mutually agreed. If at any time sessions can't be accommodated then unfortunately that time will be lost. I will however try my best to fit you in but if other classes are being taught then it is not always possible. If a jewellery course is started and you decided you no longer want to attend I will again try to transfer you to another course however refunds or part refunds will not be given. Please only book if you expect these terms and conditions.
One-day workshop cancellations/non attendance - if you are unable to attend a one-day workshop then I ask that you please give me as much notice as possible so that the place can be offered/sold to somebody else. Your booking will be moved to an alternative date wherever possible. Refunds will only be given if you are within the 14 day cooling off period following payment. In cases of less than 72 hrs notice then there is no guarantee your place can be moved to another date. (If you Fail to attend a session with no notification given then places will be lost and no refund given).
I will always try my best to accommodate students if courses can not be attended so if in doubt please do contact me.
please note- gift vouchers or goods will not be issued in place of any refund.
Clothing - Please wear clothes suitable for a workshop environment. No loose ties or scarfs please or open toe shoes. If you wear glasses for reading or close up vision then please bring these with you also. Long hair must also be tied back. Aprons are provided.
