Resources are provided on the day for the agreed number of participants only.
Numbers are confirmed upfront, for all events including drop in, and places cannot be refunded post-event.
SafEty and Behaviour
Although the majority of tools and equipment you will be using are very safe, on occasion participants may be required to operate hot or sharp items (irons, scalpels, sewing machines, etc). While we encourage your guests to enjoy your workshop as much as possible with tea / cake or something a little stronger, please keep in mind your everyone's safety with tools and equipment you may be using.
Workshop leaders will demonstrate safe use of all equipment, but ensure no one operates hot / sharp equipment if intoxicated.
Workshop leaders will be happy to help and may step in if they feel participants are unable to operate equipment or tools safely. Please do not take offence at this; it is for your group's own safety. We are not responsible for unsafe operation of any equipment should any person be intoxicated.
At the Workshop
Photographs - Workshop leaders may take photos at the session, please check with your group and let our team know before the session if anyone does not want to be photographed. Photographs may be used for published / digital media, as well as on our own social media / website.
Venue Space - For most sessions we require a clear table space for you to all work and sit around. Additionally we often require a side table / space. With our textile workshops we may also bring an iron, ironing board and / or a sewing machine, please allow space to set up this equipment. Each workshop differs in requirements, so if you are unsure, please ask. We can be flexible and can work within most spaces, but please let us know if a space you are providing differs from our requirements.
DROP IN EVENTS
In cases of organising drop in / free flowing workshop experiences -
(i). Enough materials, tools and resources will be provided for the number of participants confirmed in advance only.
In cases of oversubscription of the experience on the day, the event organiser / co-ordinator on site should be available to discuss solutions with our workshop leader. Options could include but are not limited to; crowd control measures, restricting participation flow, initiating breaks, ending the event once all resources used, etc. Solutions offered will be judged on a case by case basis with our team using their discretion.
On occasions of high demand, the organiser / event co-ordinator on site needs to consider health and safety implications for everyone involved, and have means to implement crowd control as required. Participation flow is not the responsibility our workshop team.
fOOD & DRINK
While we encourage you to enjoy food and drink alongside your workshop please limit this to snacks and food you can pick at during the workshop. Drinks are of course fine.
If you are having an afternoon tea or a meal, please arrange the majority of this before or after so both can be enjoyed fully!
dELAYS, Changes OR CANCELLATIONS
(i). If the workshop starts late due to participants late arriving, event issues or other circumstances outside of The Crafty Hen, your session will still finish at the previously confirmed time. Workshop staff are booked for the times agreed, they may use their discretion but this will be on an individual basis.
(ii). On the extremely rare (and unavoidable - due to circumstances beyond their control) occasion a workshop leader is late to your event, they will endeavour to provide you with your full session time, and will work with you to get the best time balance based on your plans following the session.
Changes to Booking -
(i). Where possible, we will try to accommodate any requests to amend the main event details, (including, but not limited to; event location, workshop activity, event date, participant numbers, etc.), made after your booking has been confirmed. But cannot guarantee being able to do so. Where amendments are achievable, this will incur a charge of £50+VAT per file to cover administration costs.
(i). If you (the organiser) chose to cancel, no refunds, compensation or damages will be due.
(ii). Cancellation by you (the organiser) within 4 weeks will mean that the full balance is still required to be paid.
(iii). Cancellation or changes may be made by ourselves when safety conditions are compromised or due to unforeseeable circumstances. If cancellations occur in such circumstances we will endeavour to make every effort to reschedule where possible. If not possible we will arrange a refund.
