Terms of Business

1. Introduction

Welcome to our website. To avoid all misunderstandings, please read these terms of business carefully.  These terms relate to goods supplied to you through our site and should be read in conjunction with the Terms of Website Use Terms and Conditions and our Privacy Policy Privacy Policy which shall also apply.

You will be asked to expressly agree to these terms of sale before you place an order for products from our website.

2. Interpretation

In these terms of sale, “we” means 'Number 57' (and “us” and “our” will be construed accordingly); and “you” means our customer or potential customer for products (and “your” will be construed accordingly).

3. Order process

Your order is an offer to buy from us. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we actually dispatch the goods or provide the services to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods or services to you without giving any reason. At the moment that the goods are dispatched or services are provided, a contract will be made between you and us, and you will be charged for the goods/services in accordance with the procedure detailed below.

In order to enter into a contract to buy goods (including gift vouchers and workshops) from us, you will need to take the following steps:

      1. you must add the products you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout;
      2. if you have a promotional code or voucher code please enter in the box provided.
      3. you will be transferred to a secure payment page where you can choose two options to process your payments (card or PayPal);
      4. we will then send you an initial acknowledgement of your payment and
      5. once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order, we will either send you an order confirmation (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order.

We will not file a copy of these terms of sale specifically in relation to your order.  We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible.  We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records.

Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors by being given a final summary of your order. You will then be given the opportunity to remove any wrong items from your cart.  The only language in which we provide these terms of sale is English.

4. The products and services

Gift vouchers: Vouchers for workshops with us can be purchased online, are easy to redeem and are valid for 1 year after purchase. We will email your voucher and code when e have processed your order. As we cannot control what is done with a voucher once purchased, your normal statutory right of cancellation within 7 working days is therefore waived. Vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash.

Workshops: Booking: Our workshops must be booked in advance through our website and, subject to clause 7, we are not able to offer refunds or transfers. If you are not able to attend a course, please contact us immediately, as we may in special circumstances be able to exchange your place with someone else. You are also able to send someone else in your place if you cannot attend yourself, please email us on info@57arts.co.uk as soon as you have your replacement’s name.

Workshop rules: We take safety of our customers very seriously and it is therefore paramount that you and any children that are attending our workshops follow the workshop rules that are given to you on the day and any joining instructions at all times. We reserve the right to exclude any participants who do not follow the rules and will not be liable for any refunds in this instance.

Our right to cancel a workshop: In the unlikely event that a workshop is cancelled, we will attempt to give you as much warning as possible to the email address you have registered with us. We will happily refund your booking fee or transfer you to a workshop of the same price, space permitting. However, we cannot accept responsibility for wasted travel or other costs or for disappointment.

5. Prices and payment

Prices for our goods and workshops are quoted on our website.  The website contains a large number of goods and services and it is always possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect.  We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a product’s correct price will be stated when we confirm your order.

In addition to the price of the products, you may have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you order the product.

Payment must be made on submission of your order.  We may withhold the products and/or cancel the contract between us if the price is not received from you in full in cleared funds.
