If you purchase products through our website, there will be additional terms and conditions relating to the purchase.  Please make sure you agree with these terms and conditions, which you will be directed to read prior to making your purchase.

Class refunds

We understand that things come up in life, but as a business, there are a few factors involved with reserving and holding seats. We purchase supplies weeks in advance in preparation for classes, so your supplies are allocated after you purchase a ticket. Your reservation also means someone else may miss out, so we don’t get as great of an opportunity to fill it, especially close to the event.

For this reason, Brushes & Booze does not offer refunds for public or private classes.

For public classes, we gladly offer the option of a free credit transfer to those who let us know 48 hours in advance. If a credit transfer is requested within 48 hours of the session start time, you will be charged a $10 per seat fee. You can use this credit any time within 12 months after it was issued and can transfer to any class that has the same or cheaper ticket cost. Simply email hello@brushesandbooze.com to rebook.

Group bookings may be cancelled or rebooked up to 1 week before the scheduled session, otherwise, each seat will incur a $20 cancellation/rebooking fee. A credit can also be issues and can be redeemed within 12 months.

All No Shows for public and private classes are charged the full amount without a refund. This is not negotiable and includes calling in sick or change of personal circumstances.

The Office of Fairtrade advises that we are not required to offer a credit or refund for change of mind and that transfer fee for such events are legal and can be applied.

BYO

Classes held at private locations such as a house or public area are BYO. Classes held at licenced venues are not BYO as alcohol can be purchased from the venue.

Public events

If we require to postpone a public event, you will be notified ASAP with a new date along with additional information. If you are unable to make the date of the new class, we will issue a credit which can be used on a class of the same cost or less within 12 months. Refunds will not be issued as we purchase supplies well in advance.

If we require to postpone a public event, you will be notified ASAP and a new date will be organised with the host. If a new date cannot be arranged, you will receive a credit which can be used to book another private class within 12 months of issue.

Pandemics, epidemics, floods, fire, riots and all other society lockdown

This policy has been put into place to keep us and you safe. If we are required to go into lockdown, you will be notified ASAP that the class you have booked has been put on hold. After lockdown has lifted, public classes will be rescheduled 4-6 weeks later to give everyone a chance to make it, and public classes will be rescheduled at the next convenience. If you’re unable to attend the public class or book a new date for your private class, a credit will be issued that can be used within 12 months. Refunds will not be offered if you can not attend the new date.

If lockdown exceeds 30 days, we will proceed will blanket refunds week by week as lockdown progresses until we are able to recommence trade.

If catering is included in the private or public class ticket, we’re unable to transfer this portion of the ticket as the venue/business has already prepared your order. If you feel you should be refunded for the ticket, you’re welcome to speak with the venue directly.

Late arrivals

We’re unfortunately unable to wait for late arrivals. Our classes are carefully timed, and waiting will affect the finish time and cause complaints.

Change of mind

Class photos/photos taken throughout the class

We take photos of the class to advertise Brushes & Booze and promote events. If you do not feel comfortable being included in these photos, please let the teacher know. We will always respect this choice.

These images are property of Brushes & Booze which are used on social media, our website, print material and various other customer touchpoints. You’re welcome to take your own photos and share them, but we ask that these images depict our property and are not used to advertise competitors.

Change of circumstances

We do not offer a refund for the customer’s change of circumstances. If you provide us 48 hours notice, we will offer a credit. If a credit transfer is requested within 48 hours of the session start time, you will be charged a $10 per seat fee.

Group booking cancellation

Group bookings may be cancelled or rebooked up to 1 week before the scheduled session, otherwise, each seat will incur a $20 cancellation/rebooking fee.

Group bookings – failure to meet 6 people

If you book a private event, you are required to pay for 6 seats. If you are unable to meet the minimum amount of people, you are required to pay for the remaining seat regardless. So if you have a group of 5 or the 5th person can’t make it, you will be paying for 6.

We will not cancel the event or refund as this is considered a change of mind under the ACCC. The event date can be rebooked outside of the 1 week notice period, or within the one week notice period and each seat will incur a $20 cancellation/rebooking fee. A credit can also be issues and can be redeemed within 12 months.
