Brooklyn Brainery is accessible, community-driven, crowdsourced education.
We host casual classes for curious adults about all sorts of things: from physics to Australian desserts, from HTML to shorthand and just about every nook and cranny in between.
All of our course topics are dreamed up and suggested by you, and our teachers are a group of awesome people from around Brooklyn and the whole city. Anyone can teach--you just need a passion for the topic and a desire to share it with others. We do all the planning, taking care of sign ups, marketing, and materials, so you can focus on the important stuff (teaching, duh).
Classes are generally one or two weeks long, and we keep them as inexpensive as possible while still covering the overhead that comes with having a physical space.
What we teach?
If you can make it, read it or think it, we're probably open to it. It can be crafty, foody, academic-y, whatever you'd like. And though we think kids are cool, all our classes are aimed at adults.
What are classes like?
The easy answer is that every class is totally different (it's also true)! Some of our teachers are pros at what they do, some are hobbyists, and some are curious people like yourselves who teach in order to explore a topic further in depth.
No matter what the class and who is teaching, our classes are laid back, fun, and participatory. No one will ever scowl at you for showing up late, and your involvement in class--whether through discussion or something hands on--is what makes them all the more awesome.
Jessi was great! Taught all the techniques we asked about and individually showed the group different things when asked. I also loved that we got to take our loom home! Great class structure.
Class was awesome, the instructor was really knowledgeable.
Lisa Nett was such a good teacher! Very knowledgeable but also super funny and engaging. I would do this again next weekend.
Jesse was an amazing and very patient teacher! This class was so worth it, and so fun. Would recommend to anyone.
Macrame was great and Jess was such a sweet teacher! Would definitely take another class
Excellent class. Both Rhiannon and Danielle were awesome. The Brainery always offers great classes with excellent instructors.
Class size was perfect, instruction was really great. If any suggestion, I would say to make a different filling for the wontons than the dumplings. Really fun class, would take another with this instructor.
The class was great. The facilitator really took to heart the participants' objectives, put us at ease and provided good tips, exercises and take-aways to build our confidence. I would definitely take it again (and more).
Very informative and super fun. Instructors were very friendly as well. I had a great time and fell in love with watercolor.
