You (“you“, “the booker“) accept these conditions whether you are booking for yourself or on behalf of others. In addition, by visiting or using our website, you agree to comply with the website terms and conditions.

Please read these short course bookings terms and conditions carefully before making a booking or considering a change to an existing booking.


a) Payment is made through Eventbrite and in accordance with Eventbrite’s payment terms as indicated in their Terms of Service, available on the Eventbrite website.


2.    FEES

a)    Our fees are as published on our website, and on the Eventbrite website, and are payable in GBP (pounds sterling).

b)    All advertised fees are to the best of our knowledge correct at the date of publication. However, we reserve the right to change any fees from time to time.



a) If you cancel your booking no later than 28 days before the course is due to commence, we will refund the course fee to you via the Eventbrite website. This is subject to the Eventbrite Terms of Service, as detailed on their website, which state that Eventbrite’s charges are non-refundable. The Eventbrite charges are 6.5% of the ticket price plus £0.49 per ticket, and 20% VAT.

There are several exceptions when Eventbrite will refund their charges to you. These are if the refund is requested due to a Covid-19- related issue, when an event is cancelled by the organiser (the Art School) or if you were charged multiple times in error and request a refund within 7 days of purchase.

b) All requests for changes and cancellations must be made via the Eventbrite website.

c) All changes to a course booking must be made no later than 10 working days before the start of the course and are subject to availability. Should any change be rejected, your original booking will stand. Name changes will not incur any charges or administration fee.

d) Non-arrival will be treated as a cancellation and you will not be entitled to any refund.

e) Non-attendance does not entitle you to any refund, extra teaching or a transfer to another course.

f) If you cancel your place on the course fewer than 28 days before the course starts, you will not automatically receive a refund. We consider all refund requests made within 28 days of the course start date on a case-by-case basis.


a) We do not expect to have to make any changes to your booking, however occasionally courses have to be changed or cancelled or errors in information or other details corrected, and we reserve the right to do so. If this does happen, we will contact you by telephone or email.

c) If a change has to be made or your course has to be cancelled we will, if possible, offer you an alternative short course. If the alternative course is advertised at a lower fee, you will receive a refund of the fee difference. However if the alternative course is advertised at a higher fee, the new fee will be payable. If you do not wish to accept a change or any alternative course offered or we cannot offer you a suitable alternative course, we will refund your course fee. You should tell us as soon as possible whether you wish to accept any change or alternative course offered or alternatively if you want a refund.
