Approximately 5 working days after each class has been broadcast via Zoom, you'll find the recorded class for sale via our Online Shop. This recorded version of the class is FREE of charge for all who have previously bought a ticket to join the ‘live' Online Interactive Workshop/Class. If you wish to watch the class on demand via our online shop they are usually charged at £25.00 (shorter classes are £15). To all who buy from the shop each authorised workshop/class released will be available to view as many times as you like for a period of 30 days ordinarily, unless we have been able to negotiate an Extended Viewing Licence for a particular class. Each video release date, and it's subsequent viewing period, is marked clearly on the full information associated with each class, visible once you visit our Online Shop!
