Terms & Conditions

Thank you for your interest in attending a class at The International Sugar Art Collection by Nicholas Lodge. The following information is for everyone taking a class by Chef Nicholas Lodge in his classroom, as well as for those taking classes with a special guest instructor in our Studio B classroom.

We take a special pride in the personal, individual attention given to all of our students. Therefore, the maximum number of class students is only 20, allowing us to offer you personal attention by both Chef Nicholas and his classroom assistant.

Class Registration/Cancellation:

It is important that you read and understand our class registration policy before you register for a class. By calling and registering for a class or by using our on-line class registration, indicates that you have read, understand, and agree to follow and abide by our class policies.


Class Registration Procedure:

 In order to register for a class at the Nicholas Lodge School,

we require a non-refundable deposit/registration fee of half of the class fee at the time of registration.

The balance of your class fee will be due 15 days prior to the start of the class. (The class balance will automatically be charged to the same credit card you used for the class registration.) Major credit cards are accepted for class registrations. Should a student need to cancel, miss, or not be able to attend a class for any reason, the student will forfeit the registration fee. Registration fees cannot be transferred to a future class.

If it becomes necessary to cancel a class due to low enrollment, all prepaid class fees will be refunded.

The school does not accept responsibility for hotel or airline cancellation penalties or other expenses incurred due to class cancellation.

All Nicholas Lodge classes are taught in English and students must be able to understand the spoken English language in order to participate in a Nicholas Lodge class.

If traveling to our school from out of town, please ensure that there is available space in the class you are interested in attending prior to making any airline, travel or lodging reservations. If attempting to register for a class less than 72 hours from the start of the class, please contact the school by telephone at 770-453-9449 for space availability.

To register for an out of town class, please contact the class host directly at the contact information provided.


General Class Information:

Unless stated otherwise in the class description, everything necessary to participate in the class is provided for you to use. You do not need to purchase any tools or equipment prior to the class, or bring anything with you to class. Every attempt will be made to cover all of the material outlined in the class description. However, due to unavoidable situations, it may be necessary to change the class outline due to time limitations and/or other unavoidable situations.

All Nicholas Lodge classes have extensive and detailed textbooks or hand outs written by Chef Lodge. These are yours to make any additional class notes you may desire. Students may take still photographs during the class, however,

no type of video or digital recording is permitted.

Classroom doors open one-hour prior to the start of class, allowing you time to come in and get settled in before the class starts. Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the class start on the first day for orientation. Most class sessions begin each day at 9:30 and end at 5:30.

On the last day of class, please do not make return airline reservations any earlier than 8:30 PM on the last day of a class to allow you time to finish the class project and complete the necessary packaging to safely get your project home.

The last day of class does not end early, and perhaps, may even run a little over, so please plan your travels accordingly.


Lunch:

Unless stated otherwise in the class description, our day-long classes have a lunch break around 12:30 and we do provide a “light-lunch” for our students.

If you are vegan, vegetarian, or have special dietary requirements or restrictions, we suggest that you bring your lunch with you to class each day.

Refrigeration and a microwave oven are available for students to use during the lunch break. Due to having a lot of material to cover during the class time, lunch breaks are short and brief. There is not enough time for a student to exit the school building and have lunch at an outside establishment.

If you will not be eating lunch with us, please let us know at the time of registration or by phone or email, at least 48 hours before the start of a class, so we may plan accordingly.


Guest Instructors:

In our Studio B classroom we offer special classes by guest instructors. In order to guarantee the number of students in a guest class, the entire class fee must be paid at the time of registration and is non-refundable.This email address is being protected from spambots.
