What is your covid policy?

COVID policy for indoor classes: 

  • students must be vaccinated OR have received negative COVID test results within 72 hours of class. 
  • everyone wears masks, regardless of vaccination status

COVID policy for outdoor classes:

  • masking requests will be communicated by the instructor of that course and according to their needs
  • students must be vaccinated OR have received negative COVID test results within 72 hours of class. 

What is your cancellation policy during the Covid-19? You may transfer your class credit for up to 60 days of your cancelled class (to any future class). If the course costs less than you cancelled class we will not be able to refund the difference, and if it costs more, we will request the additional amount.

If you are taking a multi-day class and need to cancel for 2 or more sessions due to illness, you will be offered a credit for the percentage of courses you missed.  Example: if you miss 2 of the Handy Person Kitchen Class ($40/ class) you will be able to transfer $80 credit to a new course. If you miss 1 class, we will help you catch up with notes, photos, and in some cases video documentation.

What is your general cancellation policy? If you cancel your class 2 weeks prior, you will be refunded 100%. 

How big are your classes? Our classes are capped at 6 to 15 students to ensure students maximize one on one contact with our instructors.

When do you ship your orders? Goods are shipped within 3-5 business days.

What does non-binary mean? Non-binary is a term for folks that are gender fluid and don't align with the male or female gender. People also use the term Gender Non-Conforming (GNC) or Two-Spirited (a Native term) to recognize folks beyond the binary. 

Why do you offer co-ed classes? Co-ed classes are offered because men have different learning styles too. Fireweed Woodshop provides a space where men can learn in a supportive community with no expectations of experience based on gender.

I can’t afford it. Can you help? YES, we have a scholarship pool. Email us how much you can afford and we will cover the rest if we have the funds. No questions asked. fireweedwoodshop @ gmail.com

How can I get involved? Propose a class. Volunteer. Get in touch. We are growing.

What is safe attire? Closed toed shoes, non-dangling clothing, something you can get dirty.

What is your age minimum? We are 18+ unless noted in our course description. Check out Leonardo's basement for awesome kid classes.

Do you offer private classes? We sure do! Typically courses run about $400 for a total of 8 students for a 3 hour class and if they are offsite we can relocate to your party for our fee of $50. Hire us for your next work retreat, bachelorette party, birthday anniversary celebration etc....

How does your pricing work? Most of our instructors are paid an hourly of $40-$50 based on how full class is. We also use a portion of the registration to pay our rent, website hosting fees, tool upkeep, and wages for our staff. The materials fee is based on the cost the instructor creates for prep time and material purchasing.
