Week 2 & 3 of Online Classes – It’s happening!

Week 2 & 3 of Online Classes – It’s happening!

Well that was a success! 

The past week has been incredible… from Sian Miller’s Bathroom Cabinet SFX to Hannah Martin’s Bridal Masterclass . . . and all the18th Century wenches courtesy of Catherine Scoble, red carpet make-ups inspired by Nikki Hambi and braided hairstyles from Holly Edwards, in between . We have been well and truly astounded by the enthusiasm, talent and effort displayed through your work posted on social media. Our tutors have braved the unfamiliar territory of teaching you via their computers at home. We have thrown ourselves into the task of putting on the industry’s best hair and make-up classes, live on the internet. Next week promises to continue this effort. 

Some thank yous to all the international students; we have been touched by the news that many of you were waking up at times worthy of a film industry call sheet – Kyla, Cara and Veronica were consistent members of the 3am club. In appreciation of this, some classes next week will be later so hopefully we can reach more people. 

Some classes are free and some are ticketed to cover our costs. We have made sure these are affordable and accessible for all. Delamar students and graduates will receive a 50% discount on the paid Masterclasses with an exclusive code. Please email emma@delamaracademy.co.uk for your code!

To answer some questions we have been asked a lot this week:

  • Can we record classes? To keep the magic and exclusivity of these live classes, we have made the decision not to record them. It is also important to add that most of our tutors do not wish to be recorded.
  • Will Delamar be issuing certificates for the online classes? Since we are in the beginning stages of creating online learning, certificates are not something we will be doing just yet. This is due to certification requiring serious practical participation from our students. This will be under review and with enough interest from you guys, we might explore the option of structured online courses. 
  • Can the classes be at varied times? As mentioned above, we are running classes at different times this week. Enjoy 🙂

Please see the schedule for next week below and let us know if you have any ideas for future masterclasses you would love to see – we will try to make it happen! Either contact us via Instagram or email us at info@delamaracademy.co.uk
