Terms and Conditions of booking

Please read the terms and condtions before booking your course.

Oxford School of Corsetry (OSC) and Oxford Conference of Corsetry are trading names of Sew Curvy Limited, a company registered in England, no: 08391896

Oxford School of Corsetry:

Corsetry and sewing lessons at Oxford School of Corsetry (OSC) are in high demand and places throughout the year are limited.  Sew Curvy is a one woman business and therefore the following cancellation terms are strictly applied.

Fees are non refundable upon cancellation but may be redeemed against alternative dates/courses before the end of that current financial year (end March)*.  For courses cancelled up to 1 month prior, fees are not refundable or transferable unless the space can be re-sold.  Courses cancelled within 7 days will not be refunded or transferred. Sew Curvy retains the right to cancel or defer a course up to 7 days prior to the start date.  In the unlikely event of this happening alternative dates or a refund will be offered. In the event that an alternative date is booked, then the cancellation policy comes back into force from date of booking

* Where available.  Due to the nature of the business, courses and space are limited and sell quickly.  If there is no availability in the current tax year, the original fee is forfeit.   Transfer to another course may incurr extra cost.

I do not teach men unless by prior agreement.  If you are man wishing to learn corsetry please get in touch.  If you book onto a course without prior consent you run the risk of being turned away on the day.  

Vouchers and Gifts

We do not issue vouchers for courses.  Bookings for other people can be made in the regular way when a confirmation email will be sent to you.  What you do with that afterwards is up to your own creativity.  Bookings made for other people (wives/daughers/friends) are subject to the terms and conditions above.

If buying as a surprise gift, please make sure that the recipient wants to learn or has an interest in corsetry - ie: learning how to build a corset is not a cheap route to bespoke corsetry for your wife/girlfriend - if you want your wife/girlfriend to wear a corset, please consider buying her one instead.

A special note about unwanted presents

In plain English - if you are a generous gentleman buying a last minute gift for your lovely lady, please do not presume that said lady would like to make corsets just because you think she would look nice wearing one.  Sew Curvy Limited is a full time business, not a hobby.  There will be no refunds if your lady decides at the last minute that she 'cannot get time off work', did not realise she had to sew anything, or any of the other varied and interesting excuses which have been proffered in order to get a refund or transfer so that you may not be out of pocket - the common theme being that in every single instance, these non refunded cancellations are the results of last minute gift vouchers.  I am happy to sell places to generous gents who's creative ladies have asked for a course at Sew Curvy but please bear in mind that this is a very niche interest, the difference between this unwanted gift, and the green wooly cardigan from last Christmas, is that this one wont sit in the cupboard pretending to be loved and your kind lady will feel very guilty for wasting your money.

Payment

Payment is by Paypal or sterling bank transfer.   Sew Curvy Limited is not VAT registered and therefore there are no tax concessions for business outside the UK.
