Barry will send you a Paypal invoice and your slot will be reserved once he has received your payment. All printing sessions will be paid for in advance. If your plans change, the prepayment is refundable (minus $5 admin fee) up until 4 days before the scheduled session.
Each session will happen only if enough people sign up to cover RayKo and Barry costs. The decision to run/not run will be made four days prior to the session so SIGN UP EARLY!! If a session has to be cancelled due to under-enrollment, all prepayments will be refunded in full or held as payment for a future session (your choice).

Some notes About the future
We anticipate offering B&W w/Barry printing days in June, July, and August, but the specific days & times may have to change due to previously scheduled workshops.
We will be closing up & locking the doors at 1030p on Thursdays and 3p on Sundays, so all print washing and drying will need to be completed during the sessions.
