Cancellations & Refunds

In the event that a student must withdraw their registration from a class or workshop, GoggleWorks will issue a full refund if cancellation is made seven days prior to the start of class. There will be no refunds or pro-rating options for missed classes. No refunds are issued for cancellations made within one week (seven days) of the first day of the scheduled class. In the event that someone is sick and unable to attend class, please contact Programs at programs@goggleworks.org immediately. Every effort will be made to accommodate those addressing sickness proactively in an effort to keep our fellow students and teachers safe. GoggleWorks reserves the right to cancel any program due to insufficient enrollment. If a course is canceled, you will be notified of the cancellation five business days prior to the start of class and will be offered to transfer to another course for a substitute or issued a full refund. In the event that a class or workshop is canceled due to inclement weather, GoggleWorks will schedule a make-up date.

Location

Classes at GoggleWorks are located both on campus and online. Please check the class description for your class format. With our Creative Carryout classes, students will pick up a prepared kit at the pre-arranged date and time from GoggleWorks front desk to work on at home. Videos can be found on the class site and GoggleWorks’ YouTube site.

If you register for an in person class and are unsure where the class meets, the GoggleWorks staff member at temperature check or the front desk will be able to assist you. Our facility is handicapped accessible.

Minors

GoggleWorks requires written permission for all students under the age of 18 who are enrolled in any adult course. Please contact programs@goggleworks.org if you are enrolling a minor and a permission form will be provided via email before the start date of the course. This does not apply for Mini-Makers! Family Workshops.

Wait-Lists

If a class reaches maximum capacity, you will have the option to join a wait list at the time of registration. If open spots become available in a wait-listed course, wait-listed students will be contacted to register in order of when they were added to the wait-list. If enough students join the wait-list, GoggleWorks will try to add an additional class or workshop.

Materials & Supply Lists

Most materials required for your course are included in the price of tuition. If additional supplies are needed before the beginning of class, a supply list will be included with the course description and emailed to registered students prior to the start of class.

Open Studios

All currently enrolled students in wood, ceramics, hot glass, warm glass, and metalsmithing have open studio hours included in tuition or available for purchase. Discounted open studios are only available to students currently enrolled in multiple week courses.

Makeup Dates

GoggleWorks does not offer make-up dates for any student who is unable to attend a scheduled class for un noted reasons.

Coronavirus

In an effort to keep all participants safe in the ongoing pandemic, GoggleWorks asks that you please not attend in the event that you are exhibiting any symptoms of sickness. Temperatures and precautions will be taken for each on site class. If you are feeling unwell, please contact the programs department at programs@goggleworks.org as soon as possible so we can work with you proactively to find an acceptable solution.

Artwork Pickup

If your class or workshop project(s) requires additional treatment after the course is over, GoggleWorks will contact you when work is completed and ready to be picked up. GoggleWorks does not ship work to students. Student artwork will be held 60 days after the course end date. All work is subject to discard after the 60-day period.
