Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
The class is open to all skill levels but participants must be over 18.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is slim. We would not recommend driving. You can take the E/G/M/7 to Court Square or the E/F/M/R to Queens Plaza. It is about a 15-minute walk over to our location from either station.

What can I bring into the event?
You are welcome and encouraged to bring your own computer with some simple raster and vector files if you would like to try printing your own design. It will be up to the discretion of the instructor if there is time and resources to print your file.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Feel free to email info@nydesigns.org with any questions.
What’s the refund policy?
Space is very limited so our refund policy is strict. Full refund will only be granted if request is made 72 hours in advance. Email info@nydesigns.org to request a refund.
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Yes. You sign up for a class but can’t make it so you want to give it to a friend? No problem. Please email us at info@nydesigns.org to let us know.
