Courses marked Full?

We always hold waiting lists for courses - please let us know if you would like to register interest in a course when it's full.
Quite often people get last minute spaces.

 

Cancellations Policy

If you need to cancel your place on a workshop:

Please tell us as soon as possible.

If you tell us more than 4 weeks prior to the workshop date, you can transfer to another workshop, subject to availability or alternatively revert to a credit that must be used within that calendar year. In both instances a 20% admin fee will be payable.

If you tell us with less than 4 weeks’ notice, your payment is non-refundable and non-transferable.

If we manage to re-sell your place within 4 weeks of the course date we will refund your payment minus a 20% cancellation fee or give you a credit less 20% to be used within that calendar year.

As always, the very best solution is to find someone else to take your place. Just inform us of the name change and any dietary requirements before the day.

If we need to cancel a workshop:

We try very hard not to disappoint people, but occasionally we may have to cancel a workshop due to a tutor illness or other unforeseen circumstances.

We will always endeavour to give you as much notice as possible.

You will be given the option to transfer to another workshop, subject to availability.

If this is not possible or desired, you will receive a full refund of any fees and deposits paid.

We do make every effort to find replacement tutors but at short notice this is not always possible.

We are unable to refund travel or accommodation costs or any other consequential costs you may have incurred.

 

Giving Workshops as Christmas or Birthday Presents etc & Buying Open Vouchers

Students seem to love receiving Quirky Vouchers as gifts!

Quirky days are designed to be treats, with fresh coffees, home made biscuits, tasty 2 course Aga lunches and a cream tea.

There are two ways of treating someone to a Quirky Workshop for Christmas and the year ahead.

1. Give an Open Voucher - - see below, choose your amount, follow 1,2,3 and print it off yourself.                                                                                  .     Your voucher must be used on a course taking place within a year of the purchase date.

2. Choose a Specific workshop with a date --   just email us with table above to check spaces and book a place etc.
.                                                Once payment is made, we will send you a Christmas gift voucher for you to give.

  .                  .                           We will need recipients contact details as full confirmation and maps will be sent closer to the course date

WORRIED ABOUT THE DATE?  

   for Christmas Gifts - the recipient has between Jan 13th to 19th 2019 to request by email a change to another course date or

revert to a credit that will be valid for any 2019 courses - but be quick off the mark - some dates fill quickly.

The office will not be open over the Christmas period and only Open vouchers will be available once closed.

Gift advice

Buying a Quirky Open Voucher makes a favourite gift and can be used on a wide range of 2019 courses

Many courses fill quickly, so please remind the recipient to 'look soon and book quickly' for the best choice.

It may be possible to 'hold' a place for them using the voucher as deposit- please ask!,

In this event, they will need to confirm by Saturday January 12th 2019

Course offerings vary each year and tutors 'come and go'. For example there are no knife forging or cheese courses here in 2019.

  It is not advised to give an Open Voucher to those with narrow interests, especially if there are limited date options, unless

you have checked the dates are good when you buy the voucher and & you pre- reserve with us as above.

On the other hand,  if you are buying for someone with many interests,

who 's prepared to commit early in the year and would be delighted to enrol on a great many of our 2019 courses

then a Christmas Open voucher could be a lovely present!

You do not need a Paypal account to pay through Paypal.

Some feedback from Voucher gift holders and givers

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fantastic day out yesterday for Jo and I at the Willow Angel workshop. We had an absolute ball and your hospitality was amazing. What you have going there is utterly inspiring and long may it continue! We both look forward to coming back again and again to do different things and I will certainly be bringing back others who I know would love it too.
Although it was quite a drive from Leeds, the scenery coming up yesterday morning was stunning and a real bonus. So many thanks again, take care of that knee and have a very happy Christmas and a PROSPEROUS New Year!"

"I have only had chance to briefly speak to my parents as I away working but my mum seemed over the moon with her day, especially by the mars bar scones, i am intrigued. Thank you ever so much for making my christmas present to them a wonderful experience. Hopefully in the summer we may be doing some cycling in the lakes so i will be sure to come and find you - it's a pleasure to support places like yours that are doing something different and interesting. Most people I have told about it have been surprised such a day exists and most have been interested so i have directed them to your website.
Kindest regards R D"
