Workshop Fees


Cost of Materials

Tuition does not cover the cost of materials used for students’ own production. (Hot glass tuition does cover the cost of the glass in the furnaces). Most classes require you to bring certain materials and tools with you. There may also be a studio fee for supplies used by the group, and some classes may incur a hazardous waste disposal fee. We will make every effort to notify students in advance if we anticipate a studio fee in excess of $50. Look for this information on your materials list. Note: flameworking students pay a $100 deposit and a $10 rental fee on their tool kits; optional tool kits are available in the wood and metals studios for a small rental fee.

Refund/Cancellation Policy for Fall/Spring:

If you cancel forty-five days or more before the beginning of a class, you will receive a refund minus a $250 ($100 for a one-week class) cancellation fee. If you cancel later than forty-five days before the beginning of the class, there is no refund. This policy also applies to work-study scholarship students. If it is necessary for Penland to cancel a class for any reason, students will be notified and offered the option of another class or a full refund. We cannot be responsible for nonrefundable airline tickets.

 

Refund/Cancellation Policy for Summer:

Penland makes a substantial investment when planning a workshop, and vacancies can be hard to fill even if there is a waiting list, so we must charge cancellation fees to offset the cost of these vacancies. If you cancel any time up to 30 days before the beginning of a workshop, you will receive a full refund minus a $100 cancellation fee and the $50 nonrefundable processing fee. If you cancel later than 30 days before the beginning of the workshop, there is no refund. This policy also applies to work-study scholarship students.

If it is necessary for Penland to cancel a class for any reason, students will be notified and offered another workshop or a full refund. We cannot be responsible for nonrefundable airline tickets.
