Getting to Spark Studio
Our address is 1001 17th Street, at the bottom of Potrero Hill. We’re in the ground floor space, so just knock on the window and you’ll be let in.
By Car: Most parking spots are 2-hour, but if you’re lucky, you may find one with no time limit. Plan to leave some time to find parking, since it can take a bit of searching during the day.
By Bus: Take the 22 Fillmore to Connecticut & 17th. Walk .2 miles.
By Muni: Take the T Third Street train to Mariposa & Third. Walk .4 miles.
Please note that Spark Studio has a 72-hour cancellation policy and will refund 100% of your class fee or re-book you to another class (given there’s space) as long as you notify us 72 hours before the class begins. There are no exceptions. If you can’t make it, and you forget to cancel before the 72 hour cancellation period, don’t stress! Classes make great presents, so you can always gift it to a friend. To cancel or re-book, just email us at email@example.com. If the studio has to cancel a class, you will receive a refund or credit - your choice.
What to Expect and What to Wear
Instructions and demos happen in the beginning of class, so please try your hardest to be on time. Afterwards there will be plenty of time to work on your projects. If you need to leave early, no problem.
Keep in mind...If you come with an idea, you’ll have more time to work on your project. If you’d rather wait and get inspired in class, that’s totally fine too! There will be lots of books (and Carrie - who’s full of ideas and experience) to help.
Wear warm clothes. The studio can get chilly. Aprons will be available, but you might also want to wear clothes you don’t care about - especially for classes that involve paint.
Sometimes we have to cancel workshops because of low registration (so make sure to let your friends know about the classes!). We will let you know that this is a possibility at least 48 hours in advance via email. If a class does needs to be cancelled, you can either request a refund or have studio credit.
Light snacks will be provided except for at free Crafternoons and Crafterworks sessions where we request that you please bring something to nibble or sip on to share (don't knock yourself out - store bought is fine!). There are lots of cafes and tasty places to eat in the neighborhood, if you want to grab something more substantial before coming to class.
Gift Certificates make great gifts! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can get the details and process your request. Make sure to let us know whom it’s for and the amount you’d like to spend, and Spark Studio will gladly send it out. If you’re the lucky recipient of a gift certificate, just email us when you’re ready, so we can register you for a class.
We Don’t Card, But...
We ask that kids be between 8 and 13 to take an After School Art Club class.
Permission to Use Photographs
We love sharing beautiful moments that happen during classes and events held by Spark Studio,
and often take photos and/or videos to document and promote our services. We understand that some people prefer their image, or their child’s image, not be shared on social media or promotional materials. To avoid any complications that might arise, we ask for your permission, in advance, to use this type of imagery. If you are fine with our using your or your child’s photos, please sign the Photo Release Form and either bring it with you on the first day of class or the event, or email it to email@example.com before the class or event begins.
If you are NOT ok with our using your or your child’s imagery, please let us know beforehand so
we can arrange seating accordingly and/or not include these photos in our social media and promotional materials.
