The class fee for a full-day workshop is £35. Class fees should be paid in advance by cash, cheque or preferably card (which can be done over the phone).

Cheques will be cashed two weeks before the date of the class, once we are sure the class will run, and should be made payable to Braintree & Bocking Community Association.

Cancellation policy

Fees are non-refundable from two weeks before the class unless we can sell the space to another student (subject to a minimum of six students booked). Fees may be transferable at our discretion.

Please understand that the Centre cannot afford to run classes at a loss, since we are a charity. As such, classes may be cancelled if we are unable to achieve a minimum of 6 students. If this is the case, you will be informed two weeks before the date of the class and your fee will be refunded.
