GRS Community Terms


If you register for a workshop and must cancel please email as soon as you can.  If cancelled at least 48 hours before the scheduled workshop, we will gladly refund you for the cost of the workshop.  Otherwise, no refunds will be given unless GRS needs to cancel class. GRS (and teachers) reserve the right to cancel any workshop if the predetermined minimum number of guests isn’t reached on a class by class basis, decided at least 48 hours before the scheduled time of workshop and notification will be distributed according to your preferred method of contact. 

We are unable to offer refunds, credits, class transfers with less than 48 hours advance notice. This applies to workshops, classes and events that requires pre-registration unless otherwise noted.  

Hourly rental and teacher (contracted under a collaborative pay rate) agreements and policies are expressed in a separate document specific to the usage details/teacher contract that is issued and signed between GRS and host.


GRS workshops are procured, planned, marketed and executed by GRS owner and the teacher which requires a great deal of planning.  We base this work on reaching a certain number of students. Your time and our time is valuable. GRS is a small business that works with and for the community, when students cancel, request a refund or transfer at the last minute, both parties lose money and momentum.  GRS can’t absorb these costs so we suggest you find a friend to fill your spot. We appreciate your understanding and please reach out with any questions you may have.


Classes generally require a minimum number of students to execute the class which will be listed in the description.  The number will be determined by GRS and teacher along with a maximum number of students. If a class doesn’t meet the required number, a refund will be issued along with an email alerting you of a new date, if applicable, at least 48 hours before the class date/time.  

We understand that registering for a class in advance may be challenging due to work, family, and not knowing what the week will hold.  Signing up sooner, increases the chances that the class will reach its minimum and the other guests and teacher will thank you for it. Together we can make things happen so we encourage you to schedule this time for yourself and schedule everything else around it.  Time at GRS is a gift to yourself.   


All workshops and classes must be registered for and paid for in advance of the sessions unless otherwise noted. 


Registering for any GRS workshop, class or event implies permission to use photos in social media, GRS website and marketing.  We want guests to get the most out of their time at GRS, so instead of taking time out of class, please email us at if you do not consent to GRS using any images that display your face (front or profile) before the class.  The editing of photos is within the control of GRS and associates.


GRS will indicate classes that are BYOB (see below in Liability section). Water and tea is always available at GRS and occasionally we will provide snacks and light refreshments.  There is a full kitchen with a microwave available for your use so feel free to bring your own food at any time. Downtown Frederick is full of wonderful restaurants, breweries and places to grab yummy creativity fuel. We ask that you respect our space in regards to trash and disposing of your food properly. 


At GRS, we have many different workshops appropriate for those ages 13 plus. Anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult and deemed suitable by the student or the student’s guardian.  GRS is not able to make that decision for you and will give a general age range, when able. We are happy to speak with you regarding a class before you make the decision to register your child.  


Depending on the class, we will be using paints, tools, hammers, wire, water, scissors, needles, wax, working with heat just to name a few. Make a suitable decision on attire and footwear for yourself. If there is a special need for a certain item to wear/not wear, it will be clear and noted in the class description.

At GRS we do our best to refrain from using anything containing perfumes or chemicals but we are not a perfume and chemical free space.   Participants are welcome to keep this in mind for those that may have a sensitivity. 

No pets are allowed in the studio during classes & workshops in an attempt to keep allergens as low as possible & maintain safety for guests.  Service animals are welcome.
