Before the Workshop
After registering for one of our workshops you will receive a confirmation email, with a link to the Zoom meeting and the password you will be required to enter. Please keep this safe!
You can access Zoom meetings through the Zoom app – available for download here or from wherever you download apps on your tablet/smartphone. Please download the application in advance of the workshop, as it may take a few minutes. You don’t need to have an account to access our workshops, but you may set up one for free.
Joining the Workshop
When it’s time for the workshop, click on the link in your confirmation. Please ‘arrive’ on time. You may be prompted to enter your name and/or password, then you will be taken to the waiting room. The Workshop Host will then admit you to the meeting.
During the Workshop
During the meeting we ask you to mute your mic (we can help with this!), unless you are asking a question or we are having a group discussion. Video is required for some of workshops to allow the Workshop Leader to check on participant’s progress and offer assistance – if this is the case, it will be noted on the EventBrite listing.
The Workshop Host will introduce the workshop before handing over to the Workshop Leader. Questions during the workshop are encouraged! You can use the Zoom Chat function, and the Workshop Host will pass these on to the Workshop Leader. Or, you can wave/raise your hand and ask your question using your mic. Other key information will be shared in the Chat so keep an eye on it.
Don’t worry if you are new to Zoom (we are too!). The Workshop Host will help you if needed. If you have any questions before the workshop, contact laura [at] ricefield.org.uk. You can also read this handy guide for more information.
