End of membership information upon notice received:

Although we will miss you, we understand when  it’s time to end your membership. Here’s what you need to do to complete the check out process.

  1. Since we ask for 30 days notice in writing by the first, If you have given notice BEFORE the 1st of the month, we will be able to apply your last month to the final month of membership. Remember, as stated in your contract, failure to give the agreed upon notice results in a forfeit of the damage deposit.

  2. Remove all your items from your studio and from the building. You may not leave things “for free” in the halls or garbage areas.

  3. Provided there is no damage, and you have followed the contract, your deposit will be processed within two weeks after the end of the 30 day notice. Your damage deposit will be refunded in full if the studio is left in the same or better condition than you got it. If it is required to be clean/patch/paint etc. Trestle will pay someone $20 per hour to fix the studio and deduct it from your damage deposit. Complete the document studio form for us to process damage deposit. https://forms.gle/ea7gya4osREnAY1v9

A special note for Residency and Critical Feedback Participants:


Please let us know your intentions regarding your studio membership 30 days before the end of the term of whichever program you are in.

  1. You may select to default to a regular membership, as long as you’ve been in good standing.

  2. You may elect to extend your dates for one additional session provided you are in good standing (this means attending/participating in meetings, etc)

  3. Early termination of the Residency before the end of the 6-month Residency Period means the Resident understands and agrees that they are thereby forfeiting their Last Month and their Damage Deposit.
