Refund/Cancellation, Liability Policies for Workshops


LAST DAY TO WITHDRAW WITH REFUND (minus a $100 processing fee) is 45 days prior to workshop. After this time no refund can be given unless the workshop/retreat is completely filled. Minimum enrollment varies (see class descriptions).

If minimum enrollment is not met (this rarely happens), you will be notified immediately following the 45 day mark and full refund will be made. However, no discounts or refunds can be given for your late arrival or early departure. Under no circumstances are we responsible for your non refundable hotel or airline charges. You may want to wait until the 45 day mark to make plane reservations, or, best, make sure your flight and lodging are refundable. If we are forced to cancel the workshop for any reason, students may reschedule, applying the deposit or full amount toward the new workshop, or receive a full refund.

WAIVER OF LIABILITY :The below named participant, on behalf of himself or herself, and all agents, employees, assignees, administrators, or executors, hereby releases, discharges, and waives all claims of liability against The Open Studio LLC, Paula Roland or her employees for any injuries, damages, or loss of any kind that might be sustained while participating in Paula Roland's Encaustic Workshops, or for any health condition, new or preexisting, that might develop or be affected or aggravated as a result of participation.

We cannot reduce or waive these terms in the event of circumstances beyond our control such as illness, flight cancellations, war, terrorist attacks, injury or death, natural disaster, or force majeure. If any sentence of this agreement is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance thereof shall continue in full legal force and effect.
