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.
The class was relaxing, meditative, and non-intimidating. Kelly, the instructor, walks through the process in a fun and interactive way making it appear 'easy'. She and everyone in the class were kind and supportive of everyone's artistic journey and expression. It was a wonderful way to spend an evening connecting with new people. I thought the time would be too long, and it turns out I could have sat there for much longer!
Great intro to digital photography- I feel like a gained a much better understanding of how to use my camera to its full potential and how to capture images differently to get the desired result.
Fantastic course! Can't wait to take Level 2. Great instructor and a wonderful class all around!
Michelle is awesome! She is patient, personable, and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed her class and the people in it! Will take other levels as they become available.
Was good fun, would recommend.
This was a very enjoyable class. Rhiannon was attentive, warm, and well prepared. It was a plus that she had black, as well as natural color fabric so we could choose.
Very powerfull ,and extermly important class!
Fun class, but I think it could be 30 minutes longer to give more space for creativity.
This was a really fun class! Just enough time to make your stamp and a finished piece, and the instructor was very informative and helpful. I would definitely recommend it!
Super informative and paced perfectly. Great experience.
