Missed Class Policies for Children's and Adult Classes
At Tinker, we enjoy providing high quality classes and instructors for adults and children. Each class requires a minimum number of students enrolled to ensure adequate accommodations for teachers and materials. Additionally, we hold your spot for you while we might have others on our wait list for the class, and also secure appropriate staffing for the number of students enrolled. As we make decisions regarding classes based on a variety of factors, including the number of students enrolled, we are unable to offer make-up classes, credits, or refunds for classes missed.
Please read below for specific class policies.
Missed Class Policy for Children's Class Sessions
We cannot offer refunds, credits, or make up classes for missed classes during our children's class sessions. Due to Tinker’s full class schedule, we are not able to provide you with make-up time in the studio and our teachers cannot provide individual lessons for classes missed. Hopefully your child can attend all classes in the session, but when absences occur we will do our best to get them caught up with the project(s) during future classes. Please note that it is not always possible to make up projects due to specialized materials (clay, for example) or techniques taught during the class. If the materials are available and lend themselves well to creating art at home, we will do our best send your child home with materials to complete the project on their own.

Missed Class Policy for School Day Off and Holiday Camps
School Day Off and Holiday Camps generally fill up with wait lists. We do our best to accommodate any special needs of your family. However we cannot prorate your camp based on the number of days your child attends. Camps are intended for the child to be present during all the days/hours of the specific camp you have signed up for. Please contact us as soon as possible should you have a special case scenario with your child so that we may plan accordingly and help support your needs. If an emergency arises and you need cancel your camp registration, please let us know by 5pm the Thursday before the camp begins. If we are able to fill your spot from the wait list, then we will refund you the tuition minus your deposit. If we are unable to fill the spot, you will be charged the full amount. Additionally, if you cancel after 5pm the Thursday before the camp begins, your tuition and materials fee will not be refunded.
Missed Class Policy for Adult Class Sessions
We cannot offer refunds, credits, or make up classes for missed classes during our adult class sessions. Due to Tinker’s full class schedule, our teachers cannot provide individual lessons for classes missed. We can offer for you to come in during one of our Open Access classes on Thursday evenings to have make-up time in the studio. Your attendance at Open Access is completely independent (no teacher instruction) and must be completed during the same session that you are currently enrolled in another class. In the event of a cancellation, please see the cancellation policy at the bottom of your class description page.
