Registration Policies

SFCB Online Workshops are offered over Zoom as live classes. Registered students will receive an email containing the Zoom login information two (2) days before the start of the workshop. This link is for registered student use only; sharing is not permitted. Multi-session classes will use the same link for all sessions. 

Most sessions are unrecorded and video will not be made available to students, nor is student recording permitted. It is the student's responsibility to attend each session of a multi-session workshop and handle scheduling conflicts. SFCB does not offer make-up sessions for any missed workshop days. In the event that a recorded session is available for a limited time, that video is for student use only and must not be shared in any way. 

Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis; you may register by phone or online. Please note that we cannot reserve your place in a class without having received full payment. You will receive an email confirmation when your registration is complete. If the class is already full you will be placed on a waitlist and notified if space becomes available. You will not be charged unless space becomes available and you confirm you are able to take the workshop. 

Online workshops will run only if the minimum student number is met. If you are registered for a workshop that will not meet that minimum, you will be notified two (2) days beforehand that the class will not take place. If we cancel the workshop due to low enrollment, we will issue you a credit or refund at your request.

Registration Cancellation Policy: Credit will be issued if you cancel seven (7) or more business days before your workshop. The credit must be used within six (6) months from the date of cancellation. If you cancel less than seven (7) business days before your workshop, no credit will be issued and you will forfeit the workshop fee unless a wait list has been established and another student can take your place. If a credit is issued, you will be notified via email.

For online classes with mailed kits, credit cannot be issused after the kits have been shipped, as it is then too late for us to fill any cancelled spots. Kits are usually shipped 2-3 weeks before the workshop start date.

Please call us at 415-565-0545 with any questions.

Additional Workshop Policies: Photography and video recording of workshops are prohibited unless specifically authorized by the workshop's instructor. Under no circumstances shall audio, video, or photography be published online or in print without prior authorization by SFCB. Any workshop class credit expires 6 months after the date it was issued.

In-Person Workshops are currently on hold. Please check back for updated policies when studio classes resume.
