By purchasing this course, you are acknowledging that you are responsible for your own safety and will not hold Hand + Fire / Sage Cortez accountable for any negligence. You are acknowledging that if you are to damage a piece of equipment, you are responsible to replace or reimburse for damages. Attendance is necessary for lessons. If you do not show up on the day of instruction without one week notice, reimbursement will not be given. If you cancel up to a week beforehand, full reimbursement will be given, but not later. Lastly, (and we always pray to kiln gods that it doesn’t occur, but…) any damage to a ceramic object during fire is just a part of the craft, therefore Hand + Fire is not responsible for losses.
