3. We will try our very best to ensure a smooth delivery of the online workshop. However, we cannot control the internet bandwidth at your premises. One way to make sure all goes smoothly on the day, is to check your bandwidth before the class. We recommend you use a testing site such as this one, to check you have a reliable internet connection, with a minimum speed of 1MBPS for both upload and download (most DSL and Cable internet plans will be adequate).

5. For our workshops, we will try to mostly re-use and reimagine household items. You will be sent a list of materials by FCAC, one week prior to the class.
