Workshop Terms and Conditions
What do I do if I can't attend?
We have to book our tutors well in advance, for this reason bookings are non-refundable.
What if Treacle has to cancel a Workshop?
This happens very rarely and we endeavour to run all workshops as advertised and only cancel events in extreme circumstances.
The course needs a minimum of 4 participants to run.
We reserve the right to change the course date or cancel the course if the minimum number of participants is not met.
If this happens, you will receive a full refund or a credit to use against other events or goods from the shop.
