FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

We recommend that children be of an appropriate age and maturity to remain focused for the duration of the workshop. All attendees require their own ticket.

What is the refund policy?

No refunds are available.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

The name on the ticket must match that of the attendee in order to receive a certificate of participation (required for applying for an urban hen licence from the City of Edmonton). Please contact us in advance if you'd like to change the name of the attendee.
