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.
Learned a lot in 3 hours and very organized.
Great class and instructor. They provided the supplies and I learned something new. I would recommend it!
I loved the class and the instructor was very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. My only comment on the critical side is that the lecture has way too much detail and caused me to zone out a bit. I liked the readings and would have preferred more time allotted for them. I also appreciate that the lecture can be reviewed online. All in all it's a great class and I would recommend it.
It was an amazing experience as a beginner. I feel a lot more confident to continue this growing passion in perfumery.
This class was so thought provoking! Instructor was really engaging and patient, and she presented the information clearly. I actually want to have her in to coach my organization!
Cheryl Paswater gives a brief history of fermentation then presents all you want to know about SCOBY and Kombucha. Participants take home freshly prepared kombucha with our own baby SCOBY (“symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast").
There was a little bit of a snafu as the instructor came late due to issues in her house. No fault on her, those things just happen. I've taken a class with Danielle before so I already knew how she teaches. She is very energetic and knowledgeable and always helpful! She's a wonderful teacher!
I thought that Rhianna was an excellent instructor.
Very informative & fun! It delivered exactly what it promised: I came away from the class feeling confident that I could make wontons and dumplings at home -- and even make the yummy sauce, too!
Jen did a fabulous job teaching this class! She started with a great lesson on the history of the subject and then provided lots of examples about the process. Later, we enjoyed making our own pieces. Jen has an approachable manner, and she made us feel so comfortable. I highly recommend her classes, and I look forward to my next visit to the city, so I can take more of Jen’s classes.
