How to Register


To register for a class or workshop, either:

Complete the registration and payment form on Eventbrite
Registration to classes and workshops is offered to both the general public and ECS members via Eventbrite. Details on how to register via Eventbrite, including the day on which registration opens, are provided on the event-specific pages listed in the Upcoming Classes and Workshops section below. Note that when you register through Eventbrite, an additional service fee may apply.

Registrations are not accepted by mail or through the ECS website.

You will be notified of your registration status by email or phone as early as possible.

The minimum and maximum number of participants at any workshop or course will be dependent upon financial requirements, the instructor’s wishes, and/or the facilities available. If the minimum number of participants is not obtained, the course may be cancelled (at the discretion of the Workshop Chairperson).

Once the minimum number of registrants has been reached, registration cheques will be deposited into the ECS bank account.

Notice of Registration for upcoming classes/workshops is offered first to ECS members at General Meetings and via Inkdrops (our monthly Newsletter). If you are unable to attend the General Meeting, or are a non-member, you will be able to register online through Eventbrite. Eventbrite registration is typically opened the day following the General Meeting. Spaces in a class/workshop are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Refunds & Cancellations
If you have registered for a class or workshop but cannot attend, it is your responsibility to sell your spot.

In general, refunds will not be issued if you cannot attend a class/workshop for which you have registered. Emergency-related cancellations will be handled at the discretion of the Workshop Chairperson. Contact for further inquiry.

In the event that the ECS or an ECS-hired instructor has to cancel an event, your registration fee will be refunded.
