class registration policy

signing up

Because of the logistics involved, classes at Handiwork are non-refundable. Please read the description carefully and double check your schedule before you sign up.

Sometimes, we make plans and life laughs. If you’re unable to attend the class you’ve registered for, please get in touch with us at least 3 days before the class start time so we can transfer your registration to another class or process a store credit for you.

Cancellations of less than 3 days' notice are not eligible for credit.  But you can send a friend in your place! Just let us know who's coming. 

Sometimes, we make plans and Mother Nature laughs. This is Maine, after all. If inclement weather makes travel inadvisable, we reserve the right to postpone scheduled classes and events. All reasonable effort will be made to notify participants and to reschedule the event. If you’re unable to attend the rescheduled date(s), we'll give you a store credit.

In order to compensate our teachers fairly and honor their time, we require a minimum number of students for each class. If a class hasn’t reached its minimum enrollment within 24 hours of the scheduled start, it will be cancelled. If that happens, we'll notify you and give you a refund or store credit (your choice). 



We work to provide a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space for all. We expect everyone using our space to be respectful. Anyone using speech or actions that make others feel unwelcome or unsafe will be asked to leave.

Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your class begins so that you have time to settle in and get your bearings.


Handiwork reserves the right to use photos and videos taken during classes, workshops, and other store events in Handiwork’s publicity materials and social media. Registration in classes gives Handiwork permission to use those images without further consent or compensation.
