What precautions are we taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
At Wine & Design, your comfort and safety are our top priorities. In recent state and county guidelines, face mask requirements have now been lifted and are OPTIONAL for all in-studio events! Prior to each class, our team members are sanitizing all tables, chairs, paintbrush handles, easels, bathroom, fixtures, and door handles. In addition, we are currently asking all guests to either wash or sanitize their hands upon arrival.
What is your Cancellation Policy?
All sales final, NO REFUNDS! If the class is subject to cancellation due to inclement weather or low attendance, you will be issued a CREDIT or RESCHEDULED to attend a future class. We can also package your painting as a take home kit or issue the value of your ticket as a gift certificate to give or use towards a future event. If you are sick or if there is an emergency and you are unable to attend class, please notify the studio immediately and we will add your name on file with a 90-DAY CREDIT. No refunds, no exceptions.
