Changes from 8 June 2022
We aim to get your parcels out within 3 to 5 working days but in reality it is much quicker. International parcels may take longer, especially since the start of 2021 with the additional paperwork required due to Brexit. Please be aware however that in reality we are a one man band and sometimes things take a little longer than we hope.
We use Royal Mail for domestic (up to 20kg parcels) and international parcels (up to 2kg) . Posting is normally done on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Current charges for second class with Royal Mail is £3.99 for parcels up to 2kg. Between 2 and 5kg postage is £7.50. 5 - 20kg is £10.99. If your parcel comes in at over 2kg but under 20kg we will unfortunately have to ask you to top up your postage to the given rate if not already chosen. If you are buying a class kit and add other items to it, it might be that extra postage is payable. Please note there is another option of a "flat" parcel at £2.00. If you are buying 12x12 papers or anything wider than a stamp set this will NOT apply and if chosen as shipping method extra may be payable. If you are in any doubt please dont hesitate to ask - always happy to help and give an estimate.
Please note that parcels with multiple shipping dates (as advised in store in descriptions) will be sent in one go when all items are ready.
For international shipping we use Transglobal Express brokers.
International shipping is charged at cost so you may find we either refund you the difference or have to ask for a further contribution dependant on the weight of your parcel. We will keep you informed as to shipping costs and you can decide to cancel your order and be refunded in full should you choose not to accept the rate.
Any queries at all please do not hesitate to contact us.
BOOKING & CANCELLATIONS POLICY
What to do if you need to cancel a workshop -
If the class is more than 14 days away
I can offer a place on an alternative class or the same one if planned for the future.
A 50% refund may be payable
If you tell me you cannot attend within 14 days of the class
The full class cost is still payable.
However, if you can find a friend to take your place I am happy to accept them onto the class in your absence providing they take the same kit you had ordered and you inform me of their name and contact details.
There are no refunds for non-attendance or for part attendance.
What happens if I need to cancel a workshop -
If due to unforeseen circumstances I have to cancel your workshop I will tell you as far in advance as I can and will provide another date for the class or you can have a refund in full, whichever is your preference. I am not liable for any costs you may incur other than the cost of your place on the workshop or class. I reserve the right to cancel at short notice if necessary.
Gift vouchers are non-refundable, however you can transfer them to a friend if you let me know.
PLEASE NOTE: I do not work with under 18's - adults only please.
You can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
