Cost & Fees

Snow Farm is a nonprofit organization and we keep our prices as low as possible while offering high value.

Workshop Costs

The cost of a workshop includes tuition and open studio hours.

Most workshops require an additional supply fee or kit fee. Supply fees cover materials needed for the specific class and are payable at the time of registration. Kit fees can include materials and/or tools and are payable to the instructor during the workshop. In some cases, materials are available during class and can be purchased based on individual usage. We provide an expected range so that students can plan for their expenses. Most instructors will also ask that students bring a few additional items with them to the class. 

A note about jewelry classes: we provide brass, copper, and bronze.  In some cases, a class will include silver. In classes that do not include silver, students are welcome to bring their own silver to use during the workshop. Also, stones for jewelry are not provided.

Housing & Meals

Housing at Snow Farm is available May - October.  The cost of housing depends on the type of housing and the length of the workshop. Meals are included in all housing options

Non-residential students can choose to purchase a lunch package or a full meal package at the time of registration. Because of advance purchasing needs, we are not able to add on meals during the workshop period. 

Workshop Access Program

The Workshop Access Program (WAP) provides workshop opportunities to people who could not otherwise afford to attend Snow Farm. People who meet the following household income guidelines are invited to apply to the program.

People in Household Max Annual Income
1 $40,000
2 $55,000
3 or more $70,000


Registration Fee

Once per year, there is a non-refundable $25/person registration fee.

Cancellation Policy

Because of all the change and uncertainty of the past year, Snow Farm has adopted a cancellation policy that provides maximum flexibility with no cancellation fee. 

Any cancellation two weeks or more prior to the start of the workshop can receive a full refund including tuition, materials, housing, and meals; only the $25 annual registration fee is non-refundable. Because planning for your arrival means purchasing supplies in advance, cancellations within two weeks of the start of a workshop can receive a full refund on tuition, housing, and meals; the materials fee and $25 annual registration fee are non-refundable. 

Anyone with a positive diagnosis, symptoms, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 or symptoms within two weeks of arrival at Snow Farm should not attend a workshop. Please notify us as soon as possible so we can process your cancellation.

If your plans change for reasons other than illness, please notify us a soon as possible and no later than two weeks prior to the start of a class. Planning for your visit means purchasing supplies, making a commitment to the instructor, and holding space for you in the class that someone else might like. It helps us immensely if students avoid cancelling at the last minute except in the case of illness or emergency. 

In the case of missed class time because someone experiences symptoms of COVID-19 while at Snow Farm, the amount of missed class will be pro-rated as credit towards a future class. Once a class begins, there are no refunds or credits for early departure, late arrival, or missed class for any other reason.
