Touchstone makes every effort to run each scheduled workshop; however, the organization reserves the right to cancel a workshop for any reason (primarily low enrollment). Touchstone will make cancellation notifications at least 14 days prior to the start date of the workshop. Notification for workshops that must be cancelled due to unforeseen (emergency) circumstances will happen as soon as possible.
If Touchstone cancels a workshop, participants will be able to 1) transfer to another workshop without incurring a transfer fee, 2) receive a full refund, or 3) donate their workshop tuition to Touchstone’s scholarship program (Touchstone is a charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, EIN 23-7258132).
Touchstone is not responsible for materials purchases or for nonrefundable or prepaid travel and/or off-campus lodging arrangements in the event of any cancellation (by the participant or Touchstone).
Please download our 2023 Cancellation Policy for full details.
Touchstone reserves the right to dismiss immediately and permanently any student – without refund – for behavior considered unacceptable, including but not limited to the following:
In the event of an emergency, students should contact the nearest available staff member. In case of medical emergency or fire, contact 911. Basic first aid kits and fire extinguishers are located throughout campus; please be aware of their locations. In any situation, always get help first and do not put yourself in danger. Emergency procedures, phone numbers, and directions to Uniontown Hospital and MedExpress Urgent Care are located in each building. A phone is located in the dining hall for 24-hour emergency use.
Students and instructors are asked to voluntarily provide a listing of any medical conditions or allergies that staff should be aware of in the event of an emergency on the student waiver, release and indemnity agreement. It is Touchstone’s policy to contact 911 in the event of a medical emergency. Touchstone does not supply or administer any form of injectable adrenaline (epinephrine). If you have a known allergy to foods, insect stings/bites, environmental items, and/or other products, we strongly encourage you to bring your own supply of allergy medicines or EpiPen for self-injection. If you should have an accident that requires medical attention, call 911 and/or notify a staff member immediately. The Uniontown Hospital and MedExpress Urgent Care center are both a 20-minute drive from Touchstone. If you have a nighttime emergency that cannot wait until morning, contact a designated staff member and/or check the emergency phone list posted in each building.
