Laneway Learning: Classes for Anything and Everything!
Bianca Sebecke | On 27, May 2014
As a city, Brisbane is big enough to be part of the hustle and bustle, yet on the other hand; we are Â intimate, creative and community driven.Â With roots in Melbourne and Sydney, we are now fortunate enough to have our very own branch of â€˜Laneway Learning, a â€˜ragtagâ€™ series of evening classes, for anything and everything.Â
Now, if I had to select two things that I thoroughly enjoy, they would be as follows: learning new (often quirky/sometimes useless) skills and inner city hideaways for a cup of java with creative vibes. Youâ€™re with me, right?
With that in mind, it couldnâ€™t be more fitting to get to know a nifty little organization called â€˜Laneway Learningâ€™. Knitting, vegan cooking, arts & crafts and even iPhoneography all feature. The whole prospect is pretty exciting because if youâ€™re anything like me, days are busy, packed with deadlines and meetings and extended coffee dates where we complain about how busy we areâ€¦
Here we have the opportunity to relax in the evening and Â invest some time in ourselves. This is done in a super informal setting with classes taught by folks from the local community. The concept is pretty simple. Classes are reasonably priced ($12 generally with increases for more specialist skills) and are less about becoming an expert and more about getting a cheeky, little taste of a new topic.
Classes are held at Bean in George St, which is a cozy little escape from busy city streets during the day. Now in Â the evenings, the space has opened to become the perfect grounds for workshopping.
The classes coming up in the next couple of weeks are all exciting: typography, weaving, and Â skill investment to support charityâ€¦
With no further ado, Iâ€™m going to leave it up to you. Do yourselves a quick favor and check out the details below to discover a part of your creative nature that was lying dormant somewere in there. Who knows, maybe youâ€™ll have a knack for knitting or tenderness for typography or music making?
Happy learning, of the inexpensive, fun and informal kind!
