Terms & Conditions Regarding Workshops

Workshop tickets must be paid in full prior to attending said class.

Workshop tickets are non-refundable as personalised wool requests (ie: colour) are unique to the buyer and are ordered via a supplier at time of booking. This wool is non-returnable once dispatched to The Chunky Needle.

Tickets may be transferable depending upon the nature of booking and the provision of future workshop dates. Each case will be explored individually and all efforts will be made by The Chunky Needle to accommodate individual cases. Requests for transfer must be made 72 hours prior to workshop date. Transfer request does not guarantee compliance.

Wool colour selections will be honored with full intent, however, due to unforseen issues that may arise with supplier, it may be that a colour is not available prior to workshop. The Chunky Needle will communicate any issues with the buyer and an alternative will be suggested. Workshop bookings made after wool selection deadline will have reduced colour options.

Customers who fail to attend workshops should expect to forfeit their wool. However, in exceptional circumstances arrangements for postage of wool may be possible within 7 days post workshop. This will always be subject to an admin fee and full cost of postage and packing.

Merino wool and/or acrylic will be used in all workshops. As merino is hypo-allergenic, issues surrounding allergy, reaction or similar will not be accepted after booking is made. It is the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of his/her health issues surrounding wool allergens and any concerns must be informed to The Chunky Needle 72 hours prior to workshop.

Merino wool used for workshops will be un-spun & un-felted. Instruction will be given on how to improve the durability of your merino and aftercare advice will be given.

Any questions or concerns must be expressed in writing to The Chunky Needle and all attempts to accommodate will be made on an individual basis.
