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 found this class very informative for a new beginning not only in my personal life but in my professional life as a Doula. I hope that she starts a special class for Doulas. I'm looking for more ways to gain knowledge with her on my journal to utilizing herbs in my life. Thank you
The class was more than I expected. Great group atmosphere! The speaker was informative, personable, and well prepared. The instructor created a dialogue that allowed the class to flow fluidly. I look forward to taking more courses through coursehorse but also attend additional classes taught by this particular instructor.
Thought it was fine, but not great. Instructor was nice, but not a teacher. Also, for the price of $75 it was not worth it.
Russ Ross is a wonderful and knowledgeable instructor! The class was informative and entertaining.
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.
