Frequently asked questions

 
 

CAN MY OTHER KIDS COME TO CLASS?

Yes! Siblings who are younger (or older) than the suggested age range are welcome to play in the space while their sibling participates. We have coloring pages and a reading rug to hang out on as well.

WHAT IF I HAVE TO MISS A CLASS? WILL I GET A REFUND?

If you miss a class, you are welcome to join any other equally priced session at Makeshift at a different time or date! Generally, this means any weekday morning class such as music or art classes. You won’t waste your money on classes you can’t attend! Please reach out to hello@makeshiftdc.com to schedule your make-up class.

CAN I BRING DRINKS OR SNACKS TO CLASS?

Yes! We don’t want any hungry or thirsty kids or adults - please feel free to bring and enjoy your own snacks and drinks. For kid classes, we ask that snacks be nut-free.

I’m an instructor. can i teach at makeshift?

Yes! Please get in touch via email to hello@makeshiftdc.com

CAN I TAKE A FREE ‘TRIAL’ CLASS?

We do not offer free classes, as our instructors invest a significant amount of time and energy teaching each class. However, if you take your first class and the session isn’t a good fit for whatever reason, you can cancel and receive a refund for any remaining sessions in the series.

These classes are too expensive for me.

Our instructors spend a significant amount of time preparing for class, shopping for materials, and more in addition to the time spent teaching class. We believe that energy should be valued, and believe classes have been priced appropriately for the talented instructors teaching at Makeshift. However, if you cannot afford to attend a class but would like you or a family member to attend, please email hello@makeshiftdc.com. We reserve a limited number of spots for those who would like to attend, but cannot afford it.

can i rent your space?

Yes! Space rental is $55 per hour with a 3 hour minimum. Email us at hello@makeshiftdc.com with the dates you are looking at.
