Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?


One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above.


Will I need anything from home to use in the class?


You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.


Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

I attended Simon's virtual sushi making class with my 12 year-old daughter, and it was wonderful! He's incredibly knowledgeable, and very engaging. I was skeptical about doing this remotely, but Simon had a great setup for teaching (one camera on him, one on the cutting board), and made an effort to ask questions, check-in with each participant, have us show what we made, etc., so that the remote format felt very personal. Oh, and the pre-class checklist of materials to purchase was very clear and easy to manage (another thing I had been worried about). I would definitely do this again. Well worth it.

What a great way to spend evening under quarantine. Simon was a wealth of knowledge who phenomenally kept us all engaged even while cooking rice. Easy to prepare, participate, and enjoy!
