  6. Please remember that time management is very important. Please respect your time and others. Please be on time for your class setup. You will have access to your classroom 30 min prior to your class and you will have 30 min for cleaning up after. Please be advised that you will be charged a penalty fee ($150) if your class goes over the allotted time.)

  7. All late arrival teachers/instructors for class/ demo will get a $200 fine deducted from the instructor's final payment.

  8. If the instructor is a no-show for any reason to the class/demo there will be an automatic deduction of the Sweet Art Master Show earnings lost plus a 20% penalty fee deducted from your final payment.

  9. All tables and chairs must be cleaned after your class. If you leave the uncleaned room after you it is $200 penalty fee, uncleaned microwave- $250 each, unclean mixer-$350 each.

  10. Each instructor must submit a minimum and maximum student count per class. Please make sure your minimum student count will cover your expenses to attend the show. Sweet Art Master Show will continue to sell classes (Unless SOLD OUT) the weekend of the show, unless you have specified otherwise. Therefore, it is imperative that you bring along materials for the maximum number of students.

  11. Sweet Art Master Show is not responsible for teachers/instructors travel arrangements and/or hotel accommodations.

  12. All instructors must provide All class tools and materials for their students. Sweet Art Master Show will only provide the classroom with sponsored Saracino fondant and sugar paste. It is a requirement that each student has their own set of tools and materials for class. Sharing of materials or tools during class is not allowed. The penalty for sharing tools during a class is $5000. Tools can be used for multiple classes but must be cleaned between classes. Sweet Art Master Show will provide all the Fondant necessary for classes from our fondant sponsors, but if the instructor chooses to use a different brand of fondant, the instructor will be required to provide his or her own fondant. Please add the information in paragraph #24 “Additional information”. If the instructor does not provide all the necessary tools and materials to have a successful class, Sweet Art Master has the right to cancel the class. This could be a reason for your application to be rejected next year.

  13. Sweet Art Master Show will provide you cake dummies from a local manufacturer. The invoice will be sent to you and the cost of the order will be deducted from your final payment.

  14. Instructors/teachers can inform students what tools and materials were used in class, but selling products during class or demo is not allowed. To sell your products you should fill in a vendor application and have your booth in vendor hall. Please note, if the Show Committee becomes aware of such cases you will be considered in breach of contract, your instructor contract will be immediately voided, and this will be a reason not to accept your applications in the following years.

  15. Payment will be made to the instructors within ten (10) days after the completion of the event. This will allow time for any student disputes, chargebacks, or Sweet Art Master Show penalty fees associated with class fees, etc., to be deducted from your final payment.

  16. Please ensure that you indicate your preferred method of payment on your application. The instructor will incur any fees associated with wiring (wiring will include a $50.00 fee) or online payments.

  21. All International Instructors must provide a completed W-8 form. To summarize, foreign businesses and non-resident aliens earning income from U.S. sources use a W-8 form.

Please include your completed W-8 form upon submission of your application, there will be no exceptions!
