Concessions
Concessions are given to: students; unemployed persons, senior citizens, and disabled persons. To book as a concession you must provide proof of status when you arrive for your course.

 

Course level
Some courses require previous printmaking experience. Please ensure that the course you have booked is suited to your level of experience. Edinburgh Printmakers accept no responsibility from any issues arising from booking on a course which is too advanced for the course attendee.

 

Reservations
Reservations for courses are only available for participants from educational institutions and / or those who are seeking funding from third parties for course expenses. A reservation can be held for a maximum of one month prior to the course start date.

 

Cancellation by Edinburgh Printmakers
Under COVID times, EP may have to cancel courses and we reserve the right to do so with a minimum of one weeks notice prior to the start date or sooner if required by Government advice. Full refunds will be given for any courses cancelled by EP.

Full refunds can only be guaranteed for cancellations made at least 2 weeks in advance. If less notice is given, refunds are issued at EP’s discretion and only if we are able to fill your place. It is therefore important to let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend your course so that we can do our best to fill your place.

 

2+ weeks: Full refund
1 – 2 weeks: 50% refund
Less than 1 week: No refund

 

This policy applies for cancellation by the participant for any reason, including any reasons relating to Covid-19. We are currently running courses at reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing, and our cancellation policy ensures that these events remain financially viable with smaller class sizes.

 

Transferring to another course or course date
Should course participants wish to transfer to another course or course date, the same terms apply as for cancellation of the original course booked. i.e. free transfer to another course can only be guaranteed for those transferring two weeks prior to the course dates. Within a shorter timescale and at EP’s discretion, we may be able to grant a free transfer once we have been able to fill your place on the course.

 

Course attendance
Course participants must attend the full course (or every evening of an evening class) in order to use the course as an access course. Wherever any absence is anticipated participants should let the tutor know in advance. In particular if participants are unable to attend the first section of a course they will need to arrange for 1-1 tuition with the course tutor to ensure that they are able to continue on the course. 1-1 tuition is charged at £36 per hour and must be arranged with the course tutor. No refunds can be given for failed attendance due to sickness or external circumstances.

 

Associate Membership
On successful completion of a full weekend course you will be eligible for a free associate membership of Edinburgh Printmakers Studio for three months after your course. Depending on the complexity of the process and your previous experience you may be required to take further training in your chosen printmaking area before you can use this membership to use the studio independently. The tutor and studio staff can advise you on whether you need to take further training before working without technical support.

 

You are able to book further improvers and refresher sessions during your membership that will build on your skills learnt. As an associate member you will still be required to pay for session fees each time you use the studio. Free associate membership begins immediately after the course and cannot be deferred or delayed.
