Workshops and Events

Thank you for checking into our workshop/class area. We are currently lining up artists and teachers for the spring calender for 2021. Please be patient as we do so. If you know of anyone who would be interested in teaching at our store, please contact Katy or Sandy at 916-587-2770.
Information & Policies:

  • Half-Day, Full-Day and Multi-Day Workshops/Classes will be scheduled throughout the year. Once you have paid for a workshop, you will be considered enrolled. Workshops are transferable but not refundable. This means if you are unable to attend your purchased class, you can transfer it to a friend or we can put you in contact with someone that may be on a waiting list. Any transfer will need to occur between you and that person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds. Of course, each course may have its own exceptions.
  • If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, we will create a waiting list. Please email and let us know you are interested in the sold-out class.

Emergency Cancellations:

In the event of a warehouse emergency and class cancellation, all fees will be reimbursed to the students in full.

There is no smoking inside the warehouse. Students, teachers and guests will interact with another with respect and consideration. Good manners and conduct will be assumed and anything else may be grounds for dismissal from the workshop/class.
