Refund Policy


We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!

Question from Mariam B.
Can you bring your own materials if you have them at home? Or must you purchase in class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Mariam! Yes, students can bring their own materials. If they want to make the project that the other students will work on in class, they will need to bring chunky yarn and size 10.5 needles. Hope this helps!

Reviewed by Kristen N. on 3/11/2020
The instructor was great, and I love Brooklyn Craft Co. I only wish the class size had been a little smaller, or perhaps there had been a second instructor or assistant, to minimize the time spent waiting for someone to check on how we were doing and answer questions. But I would still recommend the class anyway!

The teacher was not able to teach me. She might have been good for the other students, but for me it did not work. I am a visual learner and somewhat slow at that. She helped me about four times with the first steps, but it was a speedy Gonzales type of help. After one hour I decided to leave the class. It became obvious that I would go nowhere with the instructor. I came home, went to YouTube and learned the steps to knit. I really did not want to waste my time nor the instructor’s. Some people have no patience if you are not a quick learner and to make matters worse flying thru with the instructions does not help.

I had such a great time in their beginner knitting class. The teacher Amelia was encouraging and really patient with each and everyone of us. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn a new craft. I left the class with a new skill and eager to come back for more classes.

Sarah was a great instructor, and Brooklym Craft Company seemed like a great space that hosts interesting classes- would definitely seek out both the instructor and the host again!
