Workshops at Poco Inspired

There are books, there websites, there is youtube, but sometimes, the best way to learn is to take a workshop.
Nothing beats hands-on learning in a friendly supportive environment.
From basic bead stringing workshops to metal smithing workshops, we have a variety of workshops for all tastes and all levels of experience!

If you would like to take a workshop, see the details of the workshops we’re offering, call us or book online to reserve your place!

 

Supplies etc.

Most of our workshops require you to bring or purchase additional materials.
You can purchase them ahead of time, or come early to the workshop to get them before the workshop starts.

Student discount

All students will receive a discount on store items while registered in a workshop.
Discount lasts until the end of the workshop.
Please inquire with Poco Inspired staff for details.

 

Cancellations and Transfers

Cancellation of a workshop is possible, with at least 48 hours notice prior to workshop start date.
The student will receive a refund in the form of store credit.

For our workshop to run, a minimum of 3 students need to be registered.
If there are not enough students registered 2 days prior to the workshop start date, the workshop will be canceled, and any paid students will have the option to schedule a private lesson with the instructor, be moved to a new workshop or be refunded the workshop fee.

Once a guest instructor’s workshop is confirmed to run, workshop fees are non-refundable.
These instructors come in just to teach the workshop once the required number of students have registered.
Cancellations made with less than the required notice will forfeit the entire fee.
Sorry, no exceptions.
