AMAZING! {free class}

You know sometimes you come across something that's such a good idea you wish you'd thought of it? Yes, this is one of those!

The Amazings is very simply a great website that offers classes in ALL SORTS of really fun things - taught by people over 50 who know their stuff. It's informal, friendly, incredibly creative and passionate about learning and teaching.

The company is based in London, with plans to expand, and they now offer online classes too.

The website is super easy to use and navigate and the videos are fun to watch! The concept is just so brilliant and I love that people with experience and skill can pass on what they know.

Mastery and wisdom, brilliantly shared.

Here is just a sample of some of the classes they offer - and there will be even more to come, with one new video added each week!

Make Your Own Natural Beauty Products with Judith - the salt scrub looks divine and is super easy:

How to Make an Altered Book with Jacqueline:

Make a Mosaic Flower Pot with Josefina:

Awesome Retro Hair Dos by Michael (I wore my hair in his take on the 30s Chignon (not pictured here) at my sister's wedding, it was so easy and looked great!): 

Make an Heirloom Patchwork Quilt with Virginia - this is such a fun and relaxed video, like having a chat, and I love her vintage quilts:
