Karen and Robin at their first encaustic class

Liability Policy: By signing up and taking a workshop at the Hot Wax Studio,  ou agree to hold Michelle Belto, Charles Schraub and Hot Wax Studio free from liability in the event of an accident or injury during this class.

Class Cancellation Policy: If I must cancel a workshop or class due to under enrollment, I will notify you no later than one week before the workshop is scheduled. Your payment will be fully returned to you, or you may transfer the payment to another class or workshop. If you must withdraw from a workshop or class, please give me a minimum of one month’s notice. I will refund your full fee. If you must cancel within two weeks of the class, I will refund your fee, retaining a $35 processing fee. If you must cancel less than two weeks, I will need to retain the entire fee unless I can replace you, at which I will retain only the $35 processing fee.

What to Bring: All materials will be provided. You are welcome to bring papers, collage items or materials from your studio to personalize your work. The emphasis, however, in this workshop is to lay a strong foundation for your own work.  Most of the supports being used will be small so that it allows you to explore a variety of processes. 

Because of the need for ventilation, some find the space cool, others find it warm. Dress in layers.

Product Return Policy:  . If you need to return something, let me know within 7 days of receipt of the item. I'll refund you the purchase price when I receive the merchandise in original condition. Shipping is at the customer's expense.

Damaged Goods Policy:  In the event that an item arrives to you damaged, please contact Michelle directly at to see how you would best like to handle this issue.

Shipping Policy:  I ship USPS flat rate or UPS within 3 business days.  If I am out of state teaching, I will inform you at the time of your order to let you know when I will be back in town to ship. If this is an international order, I will contact you with costs and options for shipping.
