If you're shopping for someone else but not sure what to give them ... why not treat them to a Tea & Crafting gift voucher. Our vouchers can be used on any workshop across the site and are automatically delivered by email with instructions to redeem them at checkout. Vouchers are valid for 12 months (however classes can be booked for a date that is beyond the 12 month period). We know that sometimes gift cards are bought with a workshop in mind, however in the event that the workshop ceases to run, you will not be eligible for a refund. However we have an extensive range of workshops and are always adding so we hope that something tempts you!
We now have the option of a physical gift card! Please let us know that you'd like one of these at the time of booking, if we don't get a message we will assume you prefer to send your voucher via email. Also please bear in mind that the last day for Christmas posting is 19th of December.
