Classes and Workshops

How many students per class or workshop?
We like to keep our classes and workshops small so that Aurelia can have ample time to work with each student individually. Depending on the type of class, we have a maximum of 6 to 8 students.

What if I need to cancel my spot?
Due to our small class sizes, we request notice 72 hours before the first class, for a full refund. Late cancelations will be given credit which can be used in our store or applied towards a future class.

What if the class I would like to register for is full?
Please contact us to be added to the wait list for that particular class. We will be happy to let you know if a space becomes available. If there is enough interest, an additional class may be offered.

Do you offer private and/or custom classes?
Absolutely. If there is something particular you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact Aurelia with your inquires at info@bellavitaartisan.com.
