Address and parking

Duchess Atelier is located next to Duchess Provisions in the Holland Park Plaza at 10936–119th Street. Please use the Duchess Atelier door for classes. There is ample parking in front of Atelier and on 119th and 120th streets. We can be a bit tricky to find, so allow yourself a bit of extra time before your class. Refer to the map below for easier access.

Who can attend the classes?

Our standard classes are designed to accommodate any baking level. We will do our best to make the class a success for you no matter your skill level. We will also offer advanced-level classes for more serious bakers who have already established a foundation in the skill being taught. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult unless otherwise specified in the class description, and we generally recommend a minimum age of 10 years old for even our simplest classes.

Class formats

The majority of our classes can accommodate up to 12 people and are hands-on. This means that you will be putting on an apron, following instructions, and baking. Stations are often set up in teams of two, so if you signed up alone, you may be paired with someone else for the class. If you are hoping to attend with friends, please note that we limit the purchase of tickets in a given class to 4 per person, which ensures that lots of people get the opportunity to register. We also offer demonstration/tasting-style classes which are generally two hours in length. Due to the demand for regular classes, we are not taking bookings for private classes at this time. 

What to wear

We encourage you to wear comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes for our hands-on classes. And for all our classes, please refrain from wearing strong perfumes or colognes as a courtesy to the other students in the class.

Cancellation policy

Payment in full is required at the time of registration. Unfortunately, there will be no refunds on classes. You may cancel your registration in a class up to 48 hours in advance and credit will be issued towards another class. If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice, there will be no credit issued, but feel free to give your spot to someone else. If you fail to attend a class, there will be no credit issued and no make-up class offered. This is a strict policy and no exceptions will be made. To make changes to your registration prior to the 48 hour cut-off, please email us at info@duchessatelier.com or call (780) 758-1162.

Allergies

If you are allergic or sensitive to particular ingredients, be aware that you may be required to handle all the ingredients used in the class, which may include dairy, nuts, flour... Unfortunately, due to time constraints and recipe testing, our recipes for classes cannot be altered to accommodate food sensitivities and allergies. Allergy awareness is the responsibility of the student and not Duchess Atelier.

Class changes

In exceptional circumstances classes may need to be cancelled. If this happens you will be offered a choice between a full refund or a transfer to another class. In addition, we reserve the right to change the class menu and instructor without prior notice.
