Age Limit: Adult classes require participants to be a minimum of 16 years of age or else are at the discretion of the instructor (for special circumstances only). All workshops for youth and children have age appropriateness indicated within the description. Cancellation Policy: If a workshop is cancelled for any reason, payment is refunded in full. Please note, if minimum numbers are not met for any workshop, we make the call to cancel a workshop seven days out so don't wait until the last minute to register. If the participant cancels more than 30 days from the start of the class date, payment will be refunded in full less a $25 administration fee. If a participant cancels between 15 and 30 days in advance of the workshop, half the workshop fee plus the materials fee, if applicable, will be returned. If canceling less than 14 days no refund will be offered (the only exception being a death in the immediate family). If a workshop is completely filled and there is a waiting list, the enrollment is nontransferable as workshop space is limited. Class Size: edVentures workshops offer hands-on instruction in an intimate setting. Most classes range from 10 to 15 allowing participants to enjoy the opportunity to experience an enriching, learning environment. There is ample time to have extra instruction and a chance to get to know others in your class. Register early as most workshop classes are small. Facilities: The majority of workshops take place at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design unless

indicated otherwise in the workshop listing. The following are edVentures workshop locations: • New Brunswick College of Craft and Design • Beaverbrook Art Gallery • University of New Brunswick Arts Centre • Science East Language: While some instructors are bilingual, workshops are presented in English.

This does not apply to UNB workshops. Registration: edVentures offers a number of ways to make the registering for a workshop as simple as possible. You can choose from email, telephone, fax, mail, online, and, of course, in person. Supplies: We've made it easy and, with only a few exceptions, all supplies are provided with the materials fee.
