A $200.00 deposit is required to hold your place in the class, and
must be submitted at the time of registration. Registration will be
when the deposit has been received. If a class is full when your registration is received, you will be contacted
immediately to see if you want to be placed on a "waiting list" or change to
other workshop date. If a class cannot achieve its minimum
enrollment size, it will be cancelled, 60 days prior, and the deposit
(and/or tuition) will
be refunded in full, or (at your discretion) transferred to another
workshop date. To avoid the disappointment of a canceled class,
please register early.
The balance of the tuition
is due no later than 60-days before the
beginning of the workshop. Failure to pay your balance on time could result in losing your deposit and being replaced by
someone on the "waiting list". If you pay your deposit with a credit card, we will
automatically debit that card 60-days before the workshop, unless you notify us
of another payment method.
A $50 processing fee will be withheld for any cancellations prior to a class being guaranteed. There will be no refund of the deposit after a class has been guaranteed (minimum size fulfilled). We make the decision to confirm the workshop and commit to Hallmark Resort Newport, based on enrollment. There will be no refund of deposit or tuition or meal/lodging fees within 60 days of the workshop dates. At 60 days, we are under contract with Hallmark Resort Newport.
If a class cannot achieve its minimum enrollment size, it will be cancelled, 60 days prior, and the deposit (and/or tuition) will be refunded in full, or (at your discretion) transferred to another workshop date.
We sympathize that last minute emergencies, illnesses, or conflicts come up
that cannot be controlled. And while we are truly sorry when these
arise, due to our committed expenses, there is no refund nor transfer for
any reason within 60 days of the workshop (or after a workshop has been
guaranteed). In such an unfortunate occurrence, we will
"try" to place a canceled workshopper in a later workshop,
within 12 months (but we cannot promise this). To be fair to all, we are
not able to make exceptions. If this is a concern,
we would recommend that you acquire
fee includes: workshop instruction, but does not include workshop supplies, lodging,
meals, airfare or any other travel expenses.
A supply list will be provided 60 days prior to the workshop. Please make every effort to come with all of the items on your list. We will have a limited amount of supplies available for sale, during the workshops.

Photographs of Gary's demonstrations are permitted at his discretion, and then if taken discretely (and without a flash) so as to not disrupt the demonstration.
