So what are The Amazings?
The Amazings is an online platform where retired and retiring people pass on craft skills through classes and courses.
There are now over 200 real life workshops on offer.
Demand for the classes has far outstripped what the individual Amazings can provide, so in order to widen the availability of the courses, they will now be available through a digital platform.
|Beauty is not just skin deep... learn to make it from the experts!|
|Knitting got you in a twist and granny doesn't live close enough to pop in to teach you? Fear not you can learn from an elder on line!|
We love the concept behind this project and because we've been harping on about "Sharing your craft skills" for the past 5 years or so we're very happy to see it's something others are also aware of and striving to keep alive!
It's so important that we as a society pass on creativity because a society with out CRAFT is like a banjo with out strings!!! More and more people have become engaged with making as the modern world moves at a colossal rate people of all ages have found craft a therapeutic respite from the constant evolution in technology.
|Learn from others and maybe one day you too can pass it on to the next generation!|
So how do you get a piece of the action? Online classes will be offered in everything from knitting and sewing, to bookbinding and retro-hair dos. Courses consist of 2 hour video tutorials, commentary, teacher’s notes and you'll also be able to ask the teacher a question!
Once enrolled, users will be able to watch a class anywhere, anytime, and for as long as they like. That's the magic of the inter net and we think this offer is magic too!!! So no hurrying as you'll be able to watch and learn at your own pace and whenever you have time.
