Bees can live in cities very happily, assuming your property owner can be cool with with bees. They have a wider variety of foods in urban areas, take up very little space, and are less likely to be sprayed with pesticides than wild bees! So, move those little friends in, now! We need more bees! Rooftop spaces( like the Chattanooga Discovery Museum Apiaries) are prime for them!
That's exactly what I wanted to know. Thanks! - beatenbyrobots
Im not sure what that is - Doinkthe dog
Only the staff can make classes, but you can make an Instructable! - Yonatan24
An Instructable is a step-by-step guide that shows how to make a specific DIY project. Classes are a new feature, that only staff can make. Classes teach about subjects. For example: A woodworking class, pasta making class, or a leatherworking class. - Yonatan24
If I purchase a single class (and not a premium membership), how long do I have access to that class? After a certain period, does my purchase expire in some sense?(Please forgive me more or less re-asking this question. It didn't get answered when I asked previously) - beatenbyrobots
im at the skill level for making costume heads that i can probably teach a class on it. Im not very familiar with how things work around here but id love to share my knowledge - Doinkthe dog
At the moment, you get access to that class for a year if you buy a single class. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
If you are already a Premium member then there is no cost to take the class (other than the supplies for the class that you don't currently have). You can start and stop whenever, and as long as you have Premium Membership, you have access to all the lessons that you have or haven't completed. Troy (tomatoskins)Community Manager
Looking at your account, you should have full access to all classes. All you need to do is click "Enrol" on any class you'd like to take, then scroll down and click "Take Lesson". If you are still not able to take any class, please contact our support staff at firstname.lastname@example.orgTroy (tomatoskins)Community Manager
I am a premium member so do I need to spend any money to take a class. Can you stop and start a class session and return to where you left off. Are these classes like a web-in-arei. What if I start a class ans fins its not for me. Any problem quitting and later on deciding to take it after all. - dano9999
I have a PRO account, mine still says PRO, not PREMIUM. I see the page of videos for each class. I can watch the teaser videos, but I cannot click on the "Free with Premium" link to start. Nothing happens when I do. Will it not be available to me until my PRO says PREMIUM? It sounds like it hasn't been changed in all the places in the interface. - peeryo

Thanks for the reply. I think I'm pretty clear on what you get with a premium membership. And it does sound like a great value. However, my understanding is if you stop paying, you lose access. What I'm trying to find out is whether you lose access to class you purchased (not through a premium membership) after, say, a year. - beatenbyrobots
If I purchase a class (rather than getting a premium membership), do I have access to that class in perpetuity? Or just a year? Thanks! - beatenbyrobots
I think that if you pay 29.99, you'll get access to one class. If you are pro, you get access to all of them.As someone that has seen many classes, I can tell you that the are really good. I definitely do recommend. - Yonatan24
Thanks for the reply. Really does sound like a good deal. Just trying to find out whether a direct purchase of a lesson expires in some sense. - beatenbyrobots

Speaking from the UK, I'd be interested to see this community you speak of. Do you have a link?There are nearly 200,000 instructables you can access for free, without even being a member. Classes are a very small fraction of the site content.(Also, as I recall, Thomas Jones (Twm Siôn Cati) was a highwayman; despite sometimes being referred to as "the Welsh Robin Hood", robbed from the rich, but forget to give to the poor...) - Kiteman
Accounts are free and they give you access to thousands of instructables. Classes are just another way for Instructables to justify the cost of a pro membership in order for them to pay the bills. - Brooklyntonia
In UK we have a really, really positive community oriented approach to such things where skilled enthusiasts post their lessons on a vast range of such skills on the Internet/Web for everyone to benefit from..... FREE.We also have a National Health Service which is FREE at the point of use. - Twm Siôn Cati

That's where perhaps we differ, we have this ethos:From each according to their abilityTo each according to their need.Irrespective of money.We don't understand the concept of being 'lazy' - more Having a well earned rest. That's why so many of us end up living in FranceWe Brits are so very altruistic too - well most of us that is.Peace and Love! - Twm Siôn Cati
There are ways to get a premium membership without having to pay for it. E.g. posting a featured instructable or winning in a contest. I think the classes are awesome and worth putting in a little bit of effort, or should you be too lazy, money. - BrittLiv
Fantastic.. I think any maker has a few things they have wanted to try out for some time and might not have had any real idea of how to approach learning the new skills. I think I will subscribe to the wearable electronics study soon . :) I could not be happier that this has been made available. It was just by chance that i saw it though. I should be more aware of whats happening :)
