Bringing in a guest artist is a wonderful opportunity, yet it is financially risky for a studio, especially a small one like ours. As a result we have established the following cancellation policy.
For cancellations by participant received in writing on or before August 31, 2018
We will retain your $150 deposit and refund the remainder of the amount you paid,
if any, within 30 days of receiving your written notice of cancellation.
For cancellations by participant received in writing on or after September 1, 2018:
If we fill your seat with another student, we will retain your $150 deposit
and refund the remainder of the amount you paid, if any, within 30 days of
filling the seat.
If your seat remains vacant, your entire fees are non-refundable.
Exceptions to these policies will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Classes are held at our six-year-old studio approximately 10 miles south of the City of Buffalo, NY. We think you will find our studio welcoming and comfortable. Click here for our location and directions to the studio.
EQUIPMENT & SET UP
Each station is equipped with a Minor burner with a dedicated propane and oxygen regulator and a hood. Students may bring their own torches as long as they have "B" fittings or quick releases. Please let us know if you are planning to bring your own torch so we can ensure adequate converters.
Dress in layers. Plan for Buffalo weather. To provide adequate ventilation, windows may be open and the heating and air conditioning unit may not keep the studio at an ideal temperature. Please wear 80-100% cotton or wool clothing (synthetics melt if touched by hot glass), tie back long hair, wear closed toe shoes, and no loose jewelry.
FOOD & DRINK
Participants are encouraged to keep themselves hydrated. The studio will provide free water. You may bring your own non-alcoholic beverages. There are several delis, grocery stores, and restaurants nearby.
The studio has a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker which students are welcome to use.
We typically order lunch from local restaurants and have it delivered to the studio. We will keep track of your food-related expenses and collect the amount you owe at the end of class.
The studio has 10 complimentary parking spots directly outside our door in our parking lot.
FOOD & LODGING
There are a number of hotels/motels and a range of eating establishments within 5 miles of the studio. Oma's Guest Haus has received great reviews from past participants and is just across the street. (If you plan to stay at Oma's contact them early. They fill up fast!) Here is a partial list of other near-by motels for your convenience: Best Western Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Red Roof Inn, Comfort Inn. Note: As in the past, if there is adequate interest, I will contact the Best Western to negotiate a discounted rate.
