Payments, Cancellations, and Wait List

Your workshop registration is only complete when full payment has been received via PayPal, check, or cash at school. If you send an email related to the workshop, you will get an answer within a day. Look in your spam folder if you don’t hear from us.

You will be contacted by your instructor 1 to 2 weeks before the workshop begins.

Payment plans for workshops can be set up. For inquiries, please contact the President, Kiki Dembrow at

Wait list

Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. If the enrollment maximum is reached, your name will be added to a waitlist. If an enrolled student cancels, DFAS will notify all who are on the waitlist, starting with the first person on the list, until the space is filled.


If a workshop is canceled for any extenuating circumstances* beyond the control of DFAS and/or the workshop instructor, full refunds will be issued to all participants. DFAS will do everything possible to avoid cancellations, including relocating the workshop within the metro area. If the class is canceled due to low enrollment, you will be notified at least 14 days prior to the start of the workshop and you will receive a full refund. We are not responsible for any other costs, such as travel or accommodation.

If you need to cancel your participation in a workshop for any reason, please email or call Terry at 503.880.0722.
