I registered but did not receive a link. What do I do?
Can I receive a recording of a past or upcoming workshop or class?

Are scholarships available?
The Master Class or workshop I want to join is sold out. Is there a waitlist?
I signed up for a class but can't make it. Can I be refunded?
But I signed up for a class after the cut-off point for a full refund had passed. Can I still be eligible for a full refund?
No. Please be aware of our cancellation policy upon registration.
I'd like to transfer my registration to someone else. Is this possible?
