About Us

Rochester Brainery was founded on the belief that learning should be fun, affordable and accessible….

Fun: Each month you’ll find a variety of classes on an unrestricted variety of topics – really, anything goes, as long as there is something to be learned. Learn from local authors, artisans, actors, chefs, dancers, mixologists, musicians, flower-arrangers, beer-brewers, graphic designers, financial planners, and more. You might even meet some new friends with similar interests along the way!

Affordable: We strive to keep our classes $30 or less (with a few exceptions, depending on the price of supplies).

Accessible: We know that you’re busy, you may not have a set schedule, and that you can’t always make a long-term commitment – so we’re creating a space that breaks through those learning barriers. Our classes will be single-session classes. Come to one class a week, one class a month, or one class a year. It’s totally up to you. We will strive to offer classes seven days per week!
