Workshop Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a workshop that you have registered for then it is vital that you notify Benders immediately!   Refunds are available on the following basis:

  • The $20 deposit included in all workshop fees is NON-REFUNDABLE
  • With a minimum of 7 days notice:  FEES REFUNDED MINUS the non-refundable $20 deposit (for example, if you paid $60 for your workshop you will get $40 back)
  • With a minimum of 48 hours notice, but less than 7 days notice:  50% REFUND
  • With less than 48 hours notice:  NO REFUND


Benders may need to cancel workshops in certain circumstances: 

  • The minimum number of registrations was not reached (you will receive a minimum of 48 hours notice in this case)
  • Unforeseen circumstances such as dangerous weather conditions, teacher emergencies, etc.

In either of these circumstances you will be offered your choice of either a full refund (including deposit) or a spot in the workshop on a rescheduled date.
