GENERAL CLASS INFORMATION
NEFS offers workshops at all skill levels throughout the year. Classes range from day sessions with NEFS staff to full 5- day workshops with nationally and internationally- known professional feltmakers.
Class registration: Class registration is done online. Some classes require full payment at the time of registration, but for most, a deposit will be requested to hold your place. The balance of the class fee will be due at the end of class along with any material costs. You will be notified upon registration about details pertaining to the class including materials lists and cut off date for the return of your deposit. Classes that are cancelled by NEFS are fully refundable.
Inclement Weather: Because everyone has a different idea or what constitues bad weather and because some students will be traveling from outside the Pioneer Valley, NEFS will only cancel a class when driving is not possible due to severly inclement weather in the greater Easthampton area or if the instructor is unable to travel to the facility. Please make the necessary arrangements for yourself if inclement weather is forecasted in your area.
Refunds: Refunds for any given workshop can be granted up to one month prior to the workshop date. A refund deadline is based on the deadline NEFS must transfer funds to pay the instructor we have booked. In addition, once we reach this date, we have secured the classroom booking over competing workshops, private hire and determining employee staffing. However, it is very possible to find a replacement student from our waiting list. We will do our best to assist you with this.
Materials: A materials list will be emailed to you upon registration or in plenty of time before the class. Materials fee are due at the end of class.
Arrival and Parking: It’s important to arrive on time. Please make sure to check local weather and maps and always leave extra time to find us if it’s your first trip to the shop. Our expanded storefront space is now open! There is free parking on Cottage Street and a public parking lot directly across from us. If you need to unload supplies, you can drive around the back of the Majestic Theater Building (via Pine Street or Orchard Street) and unload into our back door. Parking in this lot is not permitted however so you will need to move your car to Cottage Street once you are done.
Food: During most classes, take-out lunches are ordered, but you are also welcome to bring your own food to class. We have a refrigerator and microwave. All food, drink and snacks should be confined to the kitchen area of the classroom space.
