Event space policy

The space you are renting is, in addition to being a lovely space for holding your workshop or event, a regular office space for Carolyne Taylor & Associates, and the studio space for Elate Cosmetics. Please be aware of this and respect that some areas and personal items in the space are ‘off limits’. If your guests, for example, are interested in sampling the Elate products, encourage them to come in for studio hours, listed on the Elate website.


All event requests will be done via our booking request form, and you will be confirmed within 72 hours. If the space is confirmed the costs will be:

  • One Day – $250
  • Two Days – $450
  • Hourly or half day bookings will be considered.

Space booking fees will be paid two weeks in advance of the booking. Your invoice will include a $100 damage deposit which will be returned following your event (less any cleaning/damage fees).


The following apply to all bookings:

  • Space is to be left as you found it, removing any trash, and placing recycling in appropriate containers.
  • Open flame candles must be in holders.
  • No smoking or illicit substance use on the premises.
  • Do not put holes in the walls, use painter’s tape only.
  • Ensure door to bathroom is locked and key is in the space, as you found it.


Capacity is determined by the set-up you use. On site we have the following items available for use:

  • 40 chairs
  • 7 x 6 x 2′ tables
  • 4 x 4′ round tables
  • 1 x 5 x 5′ square table
  • a small fridge
  • kettle

Note that for any food and beverage you will need to bring all cups, plates, utensils as none are available onsite.


For events where alcohol is sold or given away, the appropriate liquor licence must be purchased and the Serving It Right guidelines apply.


Insurance is required for any event that is open to the public and alcohol will be consumed.

As the host of the event, you are responsible for communicating the end of event time to guests, ensuring that everyone has left and the space is clean, as you found it and all garbage has been removed.


If upon post rental inspection, it is determined that cleaning is needed, the minimum charge to return the space back to normal is $30 at $30 per hour. The total amount of cleaning/moving will be deducted, along with any damage, from the damage deposit. If the space is to be found satisfactory, your damage deposit will be returned, either by credit to your credit card or by cheque.
