We advise that participants charge their device beforehand and to have it plugged in during the session.

Any mediums can be used in these sessions.

How do our online classes work?

The classes will take place via a video stream on Zoom where you'll be able to use the camera and audio on your tablet, laptop or other device to see and hear the tutor and other participants.

You simply need to book on to your class or workshop of choice as normal by the cut off time. We'll then send you a booking confirmation email with a link to your session, password and a meeting ID.
