SHIPPING POLICY

Delivery of Orders

Our aim is to get your order to you as quickly as possible.  Our processing time will partly depend on whether your item is made to order or something 'off our shelf'.  For kits our normal processing time is within 1-2 working days after receipt of payment.  We will advise you by email once your order has been dispatched. 

For a made to order item our dispatch time will be longer, and you should allow a minimum of 10 working days.  On placing an order the timescales will be discussed with you.  

 

During very busy periods it may take longer to dispatch your order.  If there is going to be a significant delay processing your order, we will contact you and give you an expected delivery date plus the option to cancel if you prefer.

The delivery method will depend on your location.  Couriers we use to deliver our orders will include but not be limited to Royal Mail, Hermes, UPS and TNT.

UK Orders

Delivery is free when you spend £150 and over.  For orders under £150 the shipping is calculated at the checkout based on weight.  All shipping costs will be advised prior to dispatch.  

Parcels of £150 and over: FREE (signed and tracked)

 

UK orders are usually delivered within 3-5 working days after the shipping date.  All goods delivered to the UK (including Channel Islands) are sent either by Royal Mail, Hermes or UPS, Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).

If you need your order quicker than our normal delivery times please choose Express Shipping at checkout to ensure that your order is processed and shipped as quickly as possible.

International Orders

We send our international orders via UPS or TNT, though occasionally use other couriers when necessary.

Most international orders are delivered within 3-10 working days, though can sometimes take longer depending on the destination.  Please contact us for a more specific estimate.

Your parcel will be fully tracked during its journey and will require a signature at the time of delivery.

All prices on our website are in Pounds Sterling.  When placing an order for delivery outside of the UK, you will be charged in Pounds Sterling, and your credit card company or bank will convert the amount into your local currency.

You may have to pay import duties and taxes, which are levied once a package reaches your country.  Any local duties, taxes or customs charges assessed by your government are your responsibility.  You must meet any additional charges for customs clearance.  Please note, customs policies vary widely from country to country.  Charges for customs clearance and import duties must be borne by you.  We recommend you contact your local customs office for further information prior to placing your order.  Please also note international shipments may be subject to cross-border inspections by customs authorities.

Items out of stock

If any of your items are out of stock you will be notified and the remainder of your order will be sent as soon as the goods are available at no additional shipping cost.

 

Exception to this will be if we are away from the studio attending exhibitions or running workshops.  We will endeavour to advise you if there is to be any delay to despatch.
