Please Note!

Pre-registration is recommended! The pre-registered (and early bird) fee is lower and registrants will be notified of any workshop info.   Class handouts and any special information will be sent  to pre-registered students by email ahead of the class. (Please do check emails ahead of class for this reason.)  Also, we determine whether a class will go forward based on the number of people who have signed up.
The Early Bird discount  (10%) is only available up till 11:59 pm of the date listed- roughly 2 weeks before a class starts. The discounted price will be seen when one checks out.

Refund Policy
For a refund or class credit, you need to contact us at least 7 days before the class starts, and we will issue a refund/ credit. We trust this policy seems fair, as we plan according to class size, buy class materials in advance and our teachers often travel distances to NYC to teach, and so it is difficult to deal with last minute cancellations. You can, however, transfer your registration to a friend who would like your spot if you you are unable to attend.

Cancellation Policy
If for whatever reason, ArborVitae needs to cancel a class, we will do our best to give you 24 hours notice and you will receive 100% refund of the cost of the class, or if you prefer a credit for the rescheduled class or future class.

Rain-date Policy
If an outside class has a rain-date and  you can not make the rain-date  (given that we use it because of weather), you will be offered a credit for the class of your choice.
