Learning Events At Handzon
At Handzon we believe shared crafting time is doubly rewarding! We offer various learning and sharing opportunities. Here is a summary and what you can expect from them:
Classes - structured learning events with a specific topic and desired outcome. Limited seats so you can be sure of getting enough teacher time to achieve the outcome. Booking essential.
Examples: Learn to Sew Class, Love your ScanNCut Class, Learn to Crochet Class etc
Sessions - Less structured and student driven, ongoing learning events. These sessions give you the opportunity to learn while you work on projects of your own choosing and learn new things as the need arises. They are normally grouped into blocks of 8 and aligned with school terms. Limited seats, booking essential.
Examples: Quilting and Embroidery Sessions, Creative Embroidery Sessions
Jams - participants take part in making a project using a particular skill or technique, with the opportunity to improvise and experiment. Limited seats, booking essential.
Examples: ScanNCut Jam, Machine Embroidery Jam
Groups - social meetings of people with a common interest. Typically marked by crafting, consuming of refreshments, laughter and light technical assistance, by group leader or fellow crafters. No bookings needed, seats not limited.
Examples: Stitch & Chat, Stitching Bee, Crafternoon
General info and terms for participating in our classes
Your class is not reserved until paid up in full. A ticket will be issued – please bring that with you on the day of your class. If your class includes a voucher, you will receive it on the first day of the class.
Cancellations are only accepted up to one week prior to the class. After that we can reschedule if requested at least 48 hours prior to the class taking place.
No refunds or rescheduling or catch up will be given for no shows.
If you have an emergency, please call ahead of the class taking place and we can try to accommodate you, but you acknowledge here that we are not under any obligation to do so.
We will not remind you of your class, so please make a note of the start times.
Please arrive about 10min early for your class, especially if you need to set up your sewing machine.
Remember to bring all parts of your machine, and also an adaptor if you need one.
Make sure your machine is in good working order before you
arrive. While we are willing to help, teachers are under no obligation to trouble shoot mechanical issues with your machine, and we will not give compensation if the condition of your machine or failure to bring the correct materials or equipment is prohibiting you from taking part in the class.
Bring your own scissors, pins and other requirements as listed. Without those you are putting strain on the shared resources and it becomes a frustration to everyone if you keep asking to borrow scissors or rulers. People may be polite and not say anything, but believe me, it is a nuisance. Don’t be that person!
If you did not finish your project, and need more help, make use of our Stitching Bee, Stitchalong or Stitch & Chat groups. We have a qualified leader in each of those, and they will be able to assist you to complete your project. But please remember that these groups are not classes, and you can only expect some “light assistance”. If you need more than that, please discuss the possibility of scheduling a private lesson with your tutor.
We reserve the right to change tutors without prior notice.
While we will take all reasonable precautions and measures to ensure your safety and enjoyment of our classes, by taking part in any activity at Handzon you indemnify the owners and directors from any liability towards injury or loss of propperty or life, while taking part or as a result of taking part in any of our activities.
By signing up to any of our classes you agree to these terms.
