How do different time zones affect my online puppet making workshops?
We will work with you to create a schedule that suits both of our time zones. Our online puppetry courses and lectures have included people from Australia, Brazil and the USA so we are used to working with different time zones!
How long is each online session and how long does each course take?
Our online courses range from an hour to several weeks of tutoring depending on your course or workshop. Online puppetry classes can be delivered in smaller blocks such as 2 hour slots to ensure you can fit it in with your schedule and don’t get screen fatigue. If you prefer to take longer classes this is also fine. We are completely flexible and tailor the schedule to be mutually agreeable.
How do the classes work? Do you send me videos or is it live?
Our online puppetry courses are live and held over Zoom. You will have face to face tutoring over the internet which will include well planned lessons, demonstrations, live instruction, screen sharing (to see slideshows, pictures or videos) and of course the opportunity to talk through all your questions. You will also receive appropriate course material such as reading extracts, copies of slide shows and written notes.
