Class and Workbox Info

To ensure your place in class, please register and pay in advance as soon as possible. Preparing class kits for those who sign up late is time consuming and inefficient for our instructors.

Bring scissors, tape runner, or adhesive and foam tape. Optional to bring: paper trimmer and a scoring board. You may find the following items to be useful as well: bone folder, black marker, glue stick, small water color brush or water brush, ruler, craft knife and mat, and white craft glue.

Check the supply list in the class descriptions before coming to class. Remember to bring your workbox to every class or club. For your convenience, all workbox items to make your work easier are available at A Small Cleverness. You will find glues, adhesives, trimmers, and much more at competitive prices.

Please refrain from wearing any kind of scented product in the shop if you are a shopper or you are taking a class. It is very objectionable to those with sensitive noses and/or health conditions. Please turn cell phones off during class. Cell phone conversations are not allowed. Please step outside to check messages or to make calls. Please arrive on time. Don’t forget your glasses. Thanks for your consideration.

Refunds for class fees can only be made if a class is canceled 48 hours in advance for local instructors. Refunds will be given for out-of-town instructors if cancelation is made one week in advance. If possible, kits will be prepared for cancelations made after these deadlines.
