Terms & Conditions

Summary of Terms & Conditions : Class Bookings

Purchasing a ticket for one of our classes constitutes acceptance of our terms and conditions as below; 

  • Refunds will be made if a class is cancelled but are not available in any other circumstances. 


  • Tickets can (on occasion) be exchanged through transferring to a new name - a minimum of 48 hours notice is required to change a name. Please call us before 5pm to tell us of the new name and mobile number. Please note: we will call the person attending class in your place to check they are the correct level required to attend class. Only beginner sewing classes are automatically transferred to another name. If a student is not at the skills required to attend class, they will not be able to attend.


  • A handling fee of £5 applies to any name changes. We only accept name changes through calling us on 02895 215683, a minimum of 48 hours before class starts is the timeframe required. (e mail / text / social media messages are not acceptable methods of notification). 


  • It is the students responsibility to ensure they are at the correct skill level required to take part in class. No refunds are given if the student has booked the wrong class for their natural skill set and abilities.


  • Students are advised to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start time of class. 


  • To avoid disruption to other students in class, we accept late arrivals up to 30 minutes after class has started. 


  • No entry 30 minutes late or more as this causes disruption to all students already in class, and the tutor. It is not possible to recap after 30 minutes tuition has been missed.


  • Speed of learning and completion of projects in class is dependant on the students natural abilities, their speed of cutting & sewing & current skill set. As a result - we do not guarantee project completion in class.


  • Photographs are not permitted in the studio without authorisation from your tutor. Please ask permission before taking photos in class.


  • On a rare occasion, class may be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. In the event of cancellation, we will either fully refund / issue a credit note / or move the student to another available class - whichever the student prefers.


  • McGrath Sewing School reserves the right to change the price of tickets, and/or introduce discounts and special offers which cannot be retrospectively applied to tickets already purchased.


  • McGrath Sewing School may need to make alterations to tutors scheduled, due to reasons beyond our control.


  • Classes are age 18+ unless accompanied by an adult / guardian also taking place in class.
