Question from Jay
What is the plan for CourseHorse to re-enroll or refund those of us who booked this class only to find out the day of class it had been canceled with no explanation and a list of materials unused and not cheap?
Question from Jay
What is the refund policy if you bought this course and the teacher last minute cancelled (can’t return the wire etc.).
Question from Anonymous
I have a 12-year-old daughter who has taken jewelry making in the past. I was wondering if we could sign up for this together despite the 18-year-old minimum age requirement. She is very mature. If not, would you be willing to teach a private class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there, if the parent is also registering for the class, it should be no problem. Hope this helps!
Question from Merceces G.

Instructor went at a good pace. Took time to answer questions and to show techniques more than once if someone requested.

It was the Teachers fault. It’s just a challenge to be able view and to know if you are doing it right

The room was extremely difficult to locate. To my dismay, we did not create a beaded bracelet as shown on the enrollment page. When I asked about the technique for wrapping stones without a hole, I were told I would need to take her advance class. With there only three students, one would think that the instructor would have been more accommodating. She also didn't want us to record or take photos. As such she missed a golden opportunity to showcase her class and increase future class sizes. I will not be recommending this course.

What a joke: teacher was a no-show, didn’t bother to tell any of us, I drove an hour to get there, we all waited around and couldn’t even get in the room. All of us wrote emails and left messages, couldn’t reach a soul. Big waste of time, totally unprofessional, the alleged “teacher” should be dumped. I’ve never signed up for a “coursehorse” class, this was first and last time. Beware.
