How to book a class
This is a step by step guide to booking a class. We suggest that if you have never booked a class to simply read through this tutorial. If you get really stuck you can always contact us by email or telephone and we'll be happy to help you with your booking.
On the bookings pages you’ll be presented with a list of available lessons, similar to the example shown below:
You can get more information about the class by clicking on the either the spyglass icon, calendar icon or the "text" of the class information itself. You'll be presented with a pop up "View Class" window. Here you can sign in and begin the booking process.
You can navigate this schedule in three different ways:
Available tab – this will show you a list of classes (default view)
Week tab – will show you the lessons in weekly calendar, you can move through the months using the arrow key "<" and ">"
Calendar icon – Click this to see ALL our classes on one calendar
To sign in you can click the "sign in" link at the bottom of any "View Class" details panel. The “View Class” details panel will pop up when you click on a class information text, spyglass icon or calendar icon.
When you click on the "sign in" link you will be presented with the "Client Log In" window
If you haven’t ever signed in before you’ll need to register first by clicking "Create a new user account". Don't worry its free and fast.
On the sign in you can click the "Create a new user account" link just below the "Log In" button and you'll be presented with the "Please enter your details" form as shown below:
When registering we ask for three things:

Materials required for class? - In order to create a booking you must choose an option. Most classes require material, we can supply you with material for a small fee or you can bring your own material. The following classes do not require material:
For these classes please choose “class does not require materials”. Don't panic if you choose the wrong option as we have spare material that you can buy when you turn up for the class. However we do prefer to know in advanced.
Quantity – If you wish to book more than one class, i.e. for you and a friend then you can do so by increasing the quantity. (please note that the same materials options will be applied to multiple bookings so if you and your friend have different requirements you will have to book separately).
Once you are happy with your choices click “Create booking” you will be taken to the pre-payment page to see the total cost of the booking including materials before being asked for payment:
When you click “Pay Now” you will be taken to PayPal’s secure payment service:
