I first featured The Amazings last Spring and it's been really great to watch them grow. I am excited to feature them again as my first Startup of the Month. The Amazings offer a great opportunity to learn something from older people who have a wealth of experience to share with you. I love their message of "try something old, learn something new" and the whole idea of spreading knowledge from one generation to the next.
The list of courses is growing all the time and you can find everything from art and diy, to cookery and journalism. The courses are either one day ones or longer series, so depending on how much time you have to spare there is an option for you. I love the idea of the bookbinding course and the glass waving course looks brilliant.
Below is a short video about Laura who runs a corset making course.
If you have made a new year's resolution to learn something new in 2013 then pop over to The Amazings now and book onto one of their courses. Even if it's not a resolution, think how great it would feel to start 2013 with a new skill! I think the courses would make great gifts too or as something fun to book to do with a friend.
Thank you to The Amazings for being my first Startup of the Month! If you have a startup that you'd like me to feature then please do get in touch.
