Conquer the Chaos of your Digital Life: Subscribe to Online Workshops
With mind-boggling amounts of data stored on multiple devices and various clouds, a quest to locate an electronic file often involves more hair pulling than a toddler’s temper tantrum. In a world of ever-increasing technological complexity, our desperate plea is to have instant access to what we want, when we want it. That’s why Interweave’s Bead and Jewelry Online Workshops subscription is the perfect antidote to digital chaos.
When you’re a subscriber, all you have to do is log in and navigate to “My Workshops.” You’ll have a sea of courses on your horizon, just waiting for you to start streaming. And the only thing you have to keep track of is your password.
From Chaos to Convenience
Remember the days of storing films galore on external hard drives, which would then be passed from friend to friend so everyone could copy them one painstaking megabyte at a time? Remember archiving your home videos – dumping them onto drives, stashing them in boxes of techy riffraff, and transporting them from place to place, until they inevitably failed from all the jostling? (But who’s bitter?) Remember buying glossy-cased CDs to add to our towers, gently transferring the chosen few into our three-disc changers?
Thank goodness for the days of online organization! Not only are we shielded from the clutter of CDs, DVDs, and short-lived hard drives, but we can actually find and use the information we care about.
Despite the downsides of unlimited access to Online Workshops, you’ll be hard-pressed to deny the control and convenience you gain by subscribing. You want to binge-watch your way through commercial-free instruction on peyote, brick, square, daisy chain and RAW stitches, followed by ladder, herringbone, hubble, chevron, and chenille? Ready to move onto how to develop your style and sell your work? Not a problem. Your favorite beading experts are right there, even in the middle of the night, from your favorite spot in the house, at exactly the pace you choose.
Our workshops are geared toward providing a meaningful learning experience, using a combination of video, text, images, and interactive activities. Plus, you can watch the videos as many times as you need and use the menu to navigate to the sections you want. Take a look at the top of this page to see the course menu for the workshop Seed Bead Embroidery: Finishing Touches.

And don’t be scared off by quizzes! Light-hearted and optional, these checkpoints let you gauge your understanding. (And retakes are always allowed.)
Workshops even come with printable and downloadable resources, including expert tips, patterns, and supplies lists. You don’t want to miss these!
Last but not least, you don’t have to feel like a total hermit who has withdrawn from society. That’s what discussion boards are for! Reach out to fellow students to share your ideas, questions, and tips, and even post images of your completed pieces.
If you want this hassle-free, crash-proof, anytime-and-anywhere experience, you’ll love the Bead and Jewelry Online Workshop subscription. Leave the headaches of storing and searching behind so you can just focus on doing what you do – learning and making.
Go be creative!
