Week 4 just dropped and it’s a killer line-up!
The people have spoken. They want more online classes!
The last week saw things continue with the same quality and diversity of learning. We had BAFTA winner, Catherine Scoble teach Car Crash SFX make-up (as in, the look was of car crash injuries). Then there was Namrata Soni’s Indian Bridal Masterclass with almost 300 of you tuning in from all over the world. Nikki Hambi taught a 1940’s Hair & Make-up Masterclass followed by 4 hours of barbering, by Sian Miller and her now Zoom famous fam! Finally, Hannah Martin did the most engaging Beauty Photoshoot Masterclass, teaching about the job of working on set with a team. We loved seeing how many online students recreated the looks taught, from haircuts to injuries on family members and a whole heap of beautiful feel-good make-up on themselves.
Next week’s line-up is killer! 2 classes are free – Siân and Wendy’s. The other three 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for your code!
To answer some questions we have been asked a lot this week:
- I haven’t received my link! Help! Eventbrite email 2 hours before the class you have registered for and 2 minutes before the class. If you don’t receive this for some reason, login to your Eventbrite to see the class link. If all else fails, email email@example.com and she will email you the link directly.
- Zoom are asking me for a code! Help! Zoom should not ask anyone for a code. If this happens please shut down the link, refresh your browser and click it again.
- Ok I have my link but it’s not working! Help! Simply log out of your Zoom account and log back in. Shut down the link you have opened and click to open it again. This has fixed every technical problem so far.
- 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.
