Wit, Wisdom, and Inspiration: Online Workshops Provide a Window Into Artistic Minds
Taking a class in jewelry making is exciting for many reasons. Not only is it a chance to learn new techniques to incorporate into our own work, but it’s also an invitation into the instructor’s personal world of inspiration, mistakes, and successes.
ABOVE: Online workshops get you into the minds of your favorite artists – any time, day or night!
Interweave’s online workshop subscription provides a fascinating window into so many artists’ creative processes. With up-close shots of exactly how to execute jewelry techniques, you’ll gain the confidence you need to start experimenting yourself. Beyond that, you might learn to use a tool or a material in a way you never thought of before, or gain a new perspective from a story shared by an artist.
