DIY KITS FOR VIRTUAL Classes
We ship out DIY Kits for Virtual Classes on our schedule and Private Virtual Classes so that they arrive a few days before the class date.
Hosts for private classes are responsible for providing accurate shipping information for their participants. We verify addresses before shipping to ensure accuracy. If an address is unable to be verified we inform the host. If the host confirms that the address is correct we can override the verification. Host and participants will be provided with tracking information. If a DIY Kit is returned to us because of a wrong address there is a $25 fee to reship the kit. In the event a kit is "lost" or is unable to be tracked, the host can request a replacement kit for a $45 fee.
During peak holiday seasons we ask hosts of private classes to consider expedited shipping when possible. Expedited shipping will incur an additional fee.
