TERMS AND CONDITIONS

AGE

7-9 only with parents even in the kids’ workshops

10-14 children can only attend the kids’ workshops without parental supervision.

At schools and in camps these rules will apply in accordance with the client organisation.

SAFETY

Everybody who legally resides in Switzerland has a liability insurance. Knock On Wood take no responsibility in case of accident and everybody uses our workshops and its equipment at his/her own risk. Our team teaches every participant the safest ways of using tools and machines. These guidelines must be respected at all times.

STORAGE

Storage is included in the duration of an ongoing course or during membership. As we deal with a large number of users,  if we do not hear from the project owner for three months, the space owner has the right to clear the storage space and unattended projects may be destroyed or recycled. Therefore, every project has to indicate the starting date and the contact details of the participant. 

 

ATTIRE

All participants are required to dress comfortably in working clothes or warm during the winter season as wood workshops are not heated to room temperature. Closed and rubber-soled shoes are required for safety reasons.

Ladies and girls should carry hair bands. We provide safety goggles, sound protection and masks, however once one becomes a regular user it is best to have his/her own.

 

MATERIAL

We provide all the materials for the structured courses only. However, for noble wood or special requirements the participant is requested to purchase his/her own material. We also provide basic woodworking accessories; screws, glue, tapes...etc. For special items the above applies.

 

CANCELLATION 

Please mark your activity in your agenda as we do not provide refunds. However, feel free to pass on your slot to somebody if you cannot make it. You can reschedule your activity minimum 48 hours before the event. In the event of instructor illness, you will be informed promptly so that you can get an immediate refund, reschedule, or pass your ticket along to someone else.

We reserve the right to cancel courses and group activities if the minimum participant amount is not met. This number depends on the activity in question. 

 

DAMAGE

Participants are liable for damage caused due to negligence. Therefore, all the tools and machinery we share have to be used purposefully and in a respectful manner. 

 

KNOWLEDGE & INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Knock On Wood uses certain methodologies and models for teaching adults and children manual fabrication mainly in professional spaces. Ongoing projects of the professionals and projects and methodologies of Knock On Wood cannot be taken or copied outside our activities.
