Fair terms

We value your business, so we’ve tried hard to make our terms as fair and balanced as possible. These terms apply on any orders and although they cannot be changed on an individual purchase, we welcome your input. Feel free to contact us.

Booking a workshop

Courses can only be booked on receipt of the fee (where appropriate). Course fees are only refundable, if notice of inability to attend is given two weeks before the start of the course, or in exceptional circumstances.

Our right to cancel a course or course session

In the event that a course is cancelled, we’ll attempt to give you as much warning as possible to the email address/phone number that you’ve registered with us. Course fees will be refunded in such a case, or if so wished, where possible, we shall transfer your booking to another course of your choice.
In the event that we have to cancel one or more sessions of a course .we’ll attempt to give you as much warning as possible to the email address/phone number that you’ve registered with us. Canceled sessions will be replaced at a date and time agreed between the students and tutor. However, we cannot accept responsibility for wasted travel or other costs or for disappointment.

Purchasing gift vouchers

Vouchers counting towards the cost of courses and workshops at Hive can be purchased in person, are easy to redeem and are valid for 6 months after purchase.
As we cannot control what is done with a voucher once purchased, your normal statutory right of cancellation within 7 working days is therefore waived. Vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash.
