Covid Information

We request participants do not attend workshops in the event that they develop any symptoms and feel ill. If any participant needs to withdraw from the course due to being ill, they will receive a full refund of their deposit.
Social-distancing, masks and vaccines will be the responsibility of each participant. Our workshops are hosted in our home at Canelo, so we all tend to be fairly relaxed when it comes to both social-distancing and masks.
Although most classes will be held outside, our workshops are hands-on, with people working in close proximity to one another. There will also be parts of the workshop where we are indoors to teach theory.
Our main house remains open to everyone. Meals will be served indoors mostly, but with lunches typically outside, weather permitting. We do have an outdoor kitchen if you would like to cook meals yourself – please let us know if you choose to opt out of meals as soon as possible.


To reserve space send a $200 non-refundable deposit once registered. The remaining balance is due upon arrival.
If you need to cancel, we would prefer a months notice, so we can find a replacement for your spot.
