Tool and Supply Recommendations

Learning from Home

  • Courses are live and interactive, from the comfort of your home! Student participation during or in-between class sessions is strongly encouraged but not required.
  • Students can watch demos, ask questions, and get individual help during class. Most two-hour,  two-day workshops do not involve in-class work time for students and are mainly focussed on instructor demonstrations.
  • For longer workshops, students may have more in-class worktime, but observers are always welcome. It can be helpful to be in a work space during these workshops, but as they do not generally have as much in class work time, it is not necessary.
