Students must have teacher approved tools and materials for each class. Some teachers offer a kit or supplies directly to students. If you have your own supplies or would like to purchase them elsewhere, you will need to check with the teacher to make sure you are fully prepared.
OIDFA will follow applicable restrictions in place at the time of the event as determined by the governments of Slovenia and Italy.
All virtual classes will be recorded by The Lace Museum which is hosting the classes and made available only to students in that class. Recording will be deleted one month after the completion of all scheduled 2023 Congress virtual classes.
Students may view the recording but may not download it to their own devices for any purpose. Students may not record any class session on their own device for any reason.
All payments are made as direct bank transfers or a direct transfer through a company such as WISE.com. Your place in the class will be held for 5 business days. If payment is not validated within 5 business days, the registration will be offered to the next person. If the class is cancelled due to low enrollment, a full refund will be given.
Cancellations must be made in writing to OIDFACongress2023@gmail.com. If an email confirming receipt of the cancellation is not received within 48 hours, the original correspondence was not received. Resend the email!
