How it works

Tutorials will take place via Zoom on Saturday 09 October 2021.

You will be matched with a tutor based on the information provided in your application. You can express a preference of guest tutor, but we can’t guarantee that you will be assigned that tutor (but we will try our best!). You can only apply to take part in one tutorial.

If successful you will be allocated a 30-minute time slot sometime between 10.00 - 17.00 on Saturday 09 October, we will email you details of your slot, along with a Zoom link and notes on how to join. You will need join the Zoom about 10 minutes before your tutorial time to ensure you are set up. 30 minutes can fly by, so in the application we ask you to let us know what you’d like to talk about so the guest tutor can prepare

Guest tutors for Work in Progress AW 2021 include:

Barrington Reeves, SJ Hockett, Narture CIC, Louise Gray, Kerrie Alexander, Fraser Gray.
