Top Tips on how to make the most of your session

Be Prepared

If you are taking part in a workshop, make sure you have the materials and equipment in front of you ready to go before the session starts.

Get Comfortable

Settle down in a quiet spot with your device plugged in. We don't want you to miss something because your battery dies! 

It's fine to craft in your PJs!

We understand that some of you might want to stay invisible in the sessions - that's OK. We won't turn your camera on unless you want us to. Feel free to be as involved as you like!

Ask Questions!

Use the Q&A function to ask the experts any questions throughout the session- we might even ask you up on the virtual stage to ask them in person!


Technical tips:

You can join all our sessions from a smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. The following browsers will work best:  Google Chrome/Firefox/Safari (Mac)

If you would like to interact with the expert, headphones with an inline microphone will provide less background nose.

A bad connection can cause dropped calls, blocky or frozen video, and poor sound. If your connection is poor:

  • try turning your video off so you are using audio only
  • Use a wired internet connection or move closer to your router
  • Close any applications on your device or in your home that could be competing for bandwidth like audio or video streaming services, or other open browsers.

Please do let us know if you have any problems during the session.
