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.
I felt it was way too much info for a 3 hour class. I definitely walked away with some good nuggets, but it's hard to integrate or even really absorb most of what was mentioned because of the fast pace (and I'm a quick study). I think it would make more sense to turn this into a full-day workshop, or just cover half of the material.
Instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and patient. I walked away with a better grasp of how my camera works, and look forward to applying that and continuing to learn more.
Very easy to follow and a lot of room to express your creativity. They provided all the supplies and everything you need!
Informative, interesting and fun!
Can't believe that a training about meetings could be this engaging!
Excellent time. The teacher was fun and friendly.
Nikki and Jen were wonderful. Nikki is extremely talented and shared her knowledge of casting and metal work with great generosity. It was hands-on from the beginning and I left feeling confident and comfortable with my new skills. A very fulfilling experience from start to finish.
I found the class very interesting, but maybe a few more people than I would like. It seemed a little rushed at times to get through certain things and other times it felt like you are waiting for others to be done using the sand or the silicone, etc. Other than that I had a great time and would love to learn more
Julian was very detailed and comprehensive with his delivery! I recommended this class to another friend!
Cheryl was great, I learned a LOT about fermentation and feel empowered to experiment with my own ferments now! The class was fun, interactive and I got to meet new people. Would def do another class here!
