Some sessions have additional fees (determined by and paid to class instructors) for materials or equipment which you may use and/or take home. We require a $100 deposit with every registration form. The deposit provides money for BLW start-up expenses and indicates a commitment for individuals attending workshop.

BLW will refund half of the deposit ($50) if a person cancels their registration before March 4, 2018.
