If SC cancels a class due to low enrollment or other extenuating circumstances, all participants will be notified to arrange for a credit towards another class.

If you cancel less than 5 calendar days before your scheduled class, SC may not issue any class credit or transfer.

No Show Policy 

Instructors are allowed to leave and cancel class after 30 minutes of no students within the teaching space and after this point, there are no refunds.

Sending a Friend in Your Place 

You may send a friend in your place in any such circumstance, but it is your responsibility to inform your friend policies applicable to them. This is because we allow you to send someone last minute.


If you need to reschedule your class(es), there is a strict 3 time policy. This means we will not reschedule you after missing 3 classes. Reschedules are only for the same class(es) initially paid for. 24-hour minimum notice is required for any rescheduling due to the nature of how we both prepare for and book for the rent of the class space. We cannot refund after 24 hours leading up to the class time.

Lots of attention, and fun. I’m really challenged with dough, but I still learned how to make a decent dumpling.

Dong was a great teacher! Personable, funny, and very knowledgable. She has a great story that I'd love to learn more about! Great beginner class for people who don't know anything about dumpling making.

Dong Chen is a wonderful teacher. She’s an engaging speaker who has led a really fascinating life. The class was fun, informative, and appropriate for all levels of skill. I’m a relatively experienced cook, but I still walked away with some new techniques and ideas for cooking. You should take this class!
