To make sure everyone leaves with all fingers and toes, we do not serve alcohol until all knife work has been finished.

HOW DO I PAY FOR A CLASS?
We accept all major credit cards online (including American Express), as well as PayPal. We can also facilitate card payments over the phone.
THE CLASS IS FULLY BOOKED IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO?
You can contact us and be put onto the waiting list in case anyone cancels. Once a class is fully booked however, we cannot add extra people, as by keeping our classes small, we are able to provide the best possible experience for everyone.
