Anytime after 7.30?
Doesnt need to be too formal. Drop in, drop out kinda thing? Whatsapp will only take 4 ppl so need an idea of numbers though.

It would be a good motivator for painting, if I'm not working I might drop in.

ive tried before for my football team but couldn't get it to work on conventional skype accounts - I had to modify my account (for a free 30 day trial) to be a 'group meeting' type of account.

that was a while ago now though - ie perhaps 4 years or so, so it may be different now.

Skype will most likely be a pain. Google Hangouts allow up to 25 people to join and you can invite people via link.
