The host/hostess decides upon the project type (planked sign or canvas pillow, for example). The host/hostess is responsible for inviting guests and making sure they register for the event by the workshop deadline; seventy-two (72) hours prior to the event. Do you have a special or unique design in mind? We can create one just for your group – just ask; (set-up fee in addition)
If you know in advance that you cannot meet the minimum attendance requirements but still want to get together, perhaps a private event isn’t right for you at the time. As an alternate, you are welcome to reserve a table (seats 6) at one of our public workshops. You will still have bar space and you are welcome to bring in quick decorations and light snacks to celebrate.
If you opt to have your group join us at a public workshop, please notify us of your event and once we have 6 registrations, we will place a reserved sign on your table.
We require a minimum of ten (10) attendees and a $120 deposit. You are financially responsible for meeting the minimum number of ten (10) attendees regardless of their attendance. [see below for information concerning your deposit]
A deposit of $120 is required to save a time slot and reserve the studio for your private event. If your private event does not meet the minimum number of registered AND attending guests; your deposit will be forfeited and you will remain financially responsible for meeting the minimum number of ten (10) in attendance.
In order to receive a full refund of your deposit; you MUST have the minimum number of guests (including yourself) register AND attend your event. A minimum of ten (10) attendees is required. Deposit refunds will occur after your event has started and no later than the end of the next the business day.
If you need to reschedule your event, you may do so ONE time with no penalty providing we have a minimum of ten (10) days in advance. Date changes with less than ten (10) days in advance will result in a loss of your deposit. A new deposit of $120 will be required to secure a new date.
The cost of a private event depends on the project chosen. Planked wood signs are $60 + tax per person, wood framed canvas signs are $52 + tax (coming soon) and canvas pillows are $40 + tax. Your guests are required to pay in full at the time of registration. We accept all major credit cards and use a secure website for processing payments. Everyone in attendance must be registered and working on their own project, “shared” projects are not allowed.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time. This will give you time to find parking, your seat, meet your tablemates, make any last minute seating accommodations and start pondering stain and/or paint colors.
Our workshops follow a tight, instructor led schedule for your enjoyment and the safety of those around you. We start promptly at the time stated at registration. Guests arriving up to 15 minutes late will join the group at whatever point the workshop has progressed to. Guests arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be allowed to work on their project and will forfeit their registration
Be sure to double check your spelling, dates and anything else that is unique to your sign. Supplies, including a customized stencil and pre-cut lumber, are prepared three (3) days in advance. You are welcome to make any changes prior to 72 hours at no additional cost. Please send an email with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to make any changes 24 – 72 hours before the scheduled start of your workshop, a $15 stencil/administration fee will be charged and is due at the beginning of your workshop. Unfortunately, we cannot make any changes with less than 24 hours’ notice.
We do not offer refunds at any time. If a registered guest is unable to attend your event; we will gladly issue a full credit (100%) on their account with more than 72 hours advance notice. A 75% credit will be applied to their account with 48 – 72 hours’ notice. A 50% credit will be applied to their account with less than 48 hours’ notice. No shows will not receive any credit or refund.
IMPORTANT: The Board Bar reserves the right to cancel a private event if the minimum amount of registrations is not met by the workshop deadline; which is seventy-two (72) hours prior to the workshop.
EXTRA IMPORTANT: Registered guests must notify The Board Bar if they are unable to attend. Notifying the host/hostess only and not communicating directly with The Board Bar does not qualify for a credit. Use this link to notify us if there is a need to cancel and/or reschedule; email@example.com.
Credits can be applied to a future workshop with availability. Please contact the studio so that we can properly apply your credit and complete your registration when you decide to sign up for an alternate workshop.
