Due to Covid 19, we have new protocols for our classes that we have put in place to keep staff and students safe:

  • All classes will occur when the store is closed.
  • All classes have a maximum of 4 students and a minimum of 3 students (in order to be able to pay our instructors). Due to this very tight window, we may need to cancel classes at the last minute. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • Students are required to wear a mask (covering the nose and mouth) throughout the class, unless all class participants are comfortable not wearing a mask. We respectfully ask that anyone not yet vaccinated continue to wear a mask
    while in the store.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available on the class table. We encourage everyone to use it as they feel necessary.
  • Class tables set up to accommodate all customers with at least 6 feet of space between them and across the tables.
  • No food or drink is allowed.
Cancellation Policy - Student cancellations must be made at least one week prior to the class to receive a refund for the class fee. After that date, class fees are not refundable and cannot be transferred to another class. 3 Kittens may need to cancel a class if not enough people sign up, but we try to provide other options when we can. We may need to reschedule due to weather or teacher illness.
