Join Apryl Anderson as she helps to unravel the mysteries of creating your own knitted creations.

English Bubble agrees to give 5 days notice of cancellation, if cancellation is necessary due to low class enrollment or other conflict. If Apryl must cancel due to unexpected events (such as illness, a death in the family, etc.), she will give as much advance notice as possible and reschedule as agreed to with English Bubble. As the student deposit defrays the cost of materials, it is non-refundable. If the student is unable to attend a class, it may be possible to attend a make-up session at a later date. Course fees are non-refundable.
