Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot find the answer you are looking for in your FAQ, please contact us on [email protected]

I am having problems viewing the classes. Any suggestions?

The classes should play fine across all common browsers and operating systems. The only technical requirement is a fairly recent version of the Adobe Flash Player. You can download the latest player for free at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ . For best possible viewing experience, we recommend above average Internet connections.

If you are experiencing problems such as delays, chopping, freezing or browser crashing, please make sure that you have the latest flash version and are on a stable and fairly good connection. It will also very often help to empty your browser cache.

If you are on a recent flash version, with a good connection, have emptied your cache and still have problems viewing the class, please contact us!

For how long can I access my courses?

Forever. Your access to your CraftArtEdu classes never expires.  You can watch them anytime and as many times you would like.

How do I access the class after purchasing it?

I am having problems accessing the class handout.

The class handouts are PDF's  If there is an instructor hand out for your class it will be in your account.  On some older classes this handout is also attached to the class player. You can download a handout while you are viewing the class by hovering over the player so the Player Bar opens up. In the bottom, slightly to the right, you will see a link called "x Attachments." Clicking this opens a list of all attachments, and you can click on them to download them.
