Sadly, it is no more. We had an incredible 2 years running the venture, and we are really proud of what we managed to achieve as a community of elders, learners and supporters.
However, we have decided to focus on delivering vocational education and, as a result, we are opening up the platform to teachers of all ages. Since The Amazings was closely linked with the idea of learning specifically from elders, we felt it wasn't appropriate to keep using the name (perhaps one day it could be resurrected?).
So now you find yourself on Mastered.
The new name reflects our change in emphasis towards masters and mastery. We aim to be a home for advanced creative skills, a catalyst for designer-makers to make a living from what they love, and a bridge between creative education and industry.
We're just getting going. Everything feels fresh and scary again. We are sad and excited in equal measures about this change. We hope we continue to keep your interest and support as we start this fresh chapter and we hope that we can help you meet your creative goals on the new platform too.
Finally, we'd like to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone one who has supported us, as an attendee, as an online learner, as partners, as staff past and present, as interns, as superfans, as street teams, as advisors, and most of all as Amazings. It's been a privilege.
