No matter when you cancel, if we are able to fill your space, we will provide a 100% refund of any payments made.
Payments made for private workshops that you arrange with us are not refundable.
Refunds will be paid by the same method that the original payment was made.
We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance for your workshop and travel expenses. Many travel insurance providers offer products that do more than protect the money you invest in your trip—they protect you in unforeseen circumstances. We suggest a plan which offers coverage for medical and dental emergencies, lost baggage, missed connections, and trip cancellation should you have a medical problem that prevents you from attending. Mountain Robbins Art Studio is not responsible for cancellations due to medical emergencies or for reimbursement of non-refundable airline tickets in the event of a workshop cancellation.
PRICING & PAYMENT
Workshop registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis. All workshop pricing is in U.S. dollars. All fees may be paid with a credit card (via PayPal) or check. All fees stated are for workshop tuition only and do not include airfares, transportation, lodging, or meals unless otherwise noted.
A non-refundable deposit, the amount will be specified in the workshop information, is required at the time of your registration. Reservations for workshops cannot be held without a deposit. The balance of the workshop fee is due no later than 90 days prior to the workshop start date. Should this final payment fail to process or be received by the date specified, we reserve the right to treat the reservation as cancelled and retain the deposit. If a reservation is made 90 days or less prior to the workshop start date, then the full amount is payable at the time of reservation.

Upgrades to a single-occupancy room are available on a first-come, first-served basis for an additional charge, and upgrades to single-occupancy cannot be guaranteed. The bedrooms are not handicap accessible and the majority of the rooms are located on the second floor.

We takes food allergies very seriously and are not equipped to handle allergic reactions. If you have specific dietary needs or allergies, booking your own accommodations off-campus is your best option so you have access to a refrigerator and cooking facilities. We cannot accommodate particular food preferences, dietary restrictions or food allergies, nor is there space to store special dietary foods, medications, or beverages. Please be advised that the workshop menu items may contain allergens such as milk (dairy products), eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat (gluten), and soybeans; and there is always a risk of cross-contact.
The type of workshops we offer requires flexibility and must allow for alternatives and/or scheduling revisions. For this reason, the workshop description must be taken as an indication of what may take place, and not as a contractual obligation.
