Kids are most welcome in the studio! Our looms are about the right size for your average 6 year old to use comfortably. Kids younger than this will most likely need you to help.
Babies are welcome. We most definitely will squeeze them and sniff them while you make. Kids over 13 need to be booked as adults.
Seeing eye dogs and emotional support animals and well behaved family pets are welcome. Our studio floor is covered in sharp objects and pins – this is at your own peril
If you arrive late, you may be turned away as we have already started the session. We have a lot of good stuff to get through, so please be on time. You will have to reschedule at your own cost.
If you have an online account with Make Town or a MT member, you will be able to cancel your class (on your dashboard) up to 24 hours before the start time for a full refund. If you don’t have an account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org directly stating that you do not have an account and we will sort your cancellation for you.
Unfortunately we do not offer refunds for guest workshops – i.e. workshops taught by external teachers and not by Brooke or Becky. If the workshop is a guest workshop, this will be clearly indicated on the workshop’s page, which you can find on this website.
We process refunds for all other workshops on Mondays.
If you have missed the 24 hour window (described above) to claim your refund, you are welcome to send someone you know in your place. No show, no refund.
Our system is unable to offer rescheduling – so please rebook another time that works for you.
If the class you want to come to is sold out email email@example.com and if the situation changes she will be in touch

Craft parties in the studio will start on time. Please arrive promptly as we are unable to extend the party if you are running late.
You can hire the entire studio for your next book launch, craft meet or industry talk. We would love to have you in the studio.
We are always looking for rad people to host interesting workshops, so get in touch and let’s make magic happen.
Everyone 13+ can sign up. Access to the studio during open hours, with 50% off classes and workshops (except after school club). A ‘Welcome Pack’ will be sent to each new member and you must comply with our house rules – we will redact your membership if think you are upsetting the vibes.
All payments are final – We use a programme/system that is automated, and we will not interfere with it (we are not Tech savy)
All bookings can be made through your user dashboard, and you can cancel your membership anytime.
You must be a current member to enjoy the benefits – If your membership has lapsed and you still want to come, either rejoin as a member before your class or pay the full amount – This isn’t a chance to find loopholes – its about being a Garry good cunt.
Can I book for a mate/my kid with my membership? Sure – But only YOU get the discount. Our system will allow you to book multiple places for convenience, however you will need to pay the difference for the others or we will have to kick you up the bum x
