The Amazings

Learn from Your Elders on The Amazings

Malcolm Gladwell says 10,000 hours of practice makes a master. Buy it or not, a lot of great work has come from practiced hands, and experience isn’t something you can buy.

But a lesson – well, that’s another thing entirely. The Amazings is a website that brings together masters in any field to teach how to do exactly what they do best.

When it first started, The Amazings was a way to connect the exceptional talent of London with its eager-to-learn youths. But after amassing a base of truly talented teachers, it decided create video lessons to let people all over the world benefit.

Take a class with Michael, a knowledgeable hairstylist who can make you look like Bridget Bardot or Veronica Bennett. Or learn from Judith, who makes her own beauty products from things you can find in your kitchen cabinet.

They say it’s a way to pass wisdom down from generation to generation – and it won’t take 10,000 hours to pick up.
