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.
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.
my first class, won't be my last.
Great atmosphere and even greater instructors. All around wonderful environment
The class introduced music theory in a helpful way, but in the second part we did not dive into the music theory of the record enough. We went through each section of the song, but the insights were surface level (e.g. "a faster time signature creates a sense of urgency" or "these two chords don't sound good together separately, but it works in the song") and the instructor did not seem to know the meaning behind many of the lyrics (we were encouraged to share our thoughts, then the instructor always brought the conversation back to "yes, it seems to fit in with theme of crisis/chaos in the rest of the song"). Perhaps the class is designed this way, but I felt that it was not worth my time. Based on this class experience, I would not attend another Pop Music Breakdown class.
