Nepal Earthquake Fundraiser

Nepal Earthquake Fundraiser

Join Rochester Brainery and Happy Earth Tea this Saturday as they co-host a fundraiser to benefit the victims of the recent earthquake that has devestated Nepal. Entry is $10 and includes a sampling of Nepali tea and traditional Nepali snacks of momos (dumplings) and aloo dum (spicy potatoes). We’ll also have a silent auction with donations from The Red Fern, Joe Bean Coffee & more! Local writer Danielle Preiss will have her photos from Nepal for sale.

All proceeds will be equally divided between Ama Foundation and international relief agency CARE that is currently working in the affected parts of Nepal. Ama Foundation provides housing and education to abandoned children in Nepal and is Happy Earth Tea’s social partner.

I love Rochester Brainery! They offer such a great variety of one-session classes, $15-$30. Not only are Rochester Artisans taking classes there, they are teaching. The video shows a painting class taught by Steve Duprey.

Book Binding for Fun
February 26 brings us Book Binding for Fun by paper artist Rachael Gootnick.

mandela_workshop_grandeBrand new Rochester Artisan Lesley Shakespeare-Brogan is teaching her Mandala Workshop on March 5.



I’m not sure if Sigriet Ferrer is a member of Rochester Artisans, but she’s definitely a Facebook friend of ours. She’s teaching Succulent Gardens: Terrarium Workshop in late March. Do I spend too much time on Pinterest or are using succulents in gardening becoming a big thing lately?


Jennie Fox is teaching Basic Alterations.


Brainery Bazaar
And many Rochester Artisans have participated in their Brainery Bazaar, held the 2nd Saturday of each month. There is always a nice selection of high quality artists there.


On the next First Friday, drop by Rochester Brainery to help them celebrate their success!

1st Brainiversary Event

March 7th 2014 marks our 1-year anniversary! To thank you for your support and to celebrate the occasion, we’re throwing a Brainiversary Celebration!

Not only will we have music from DJ David McGinnis, tasty treats from Scratch Bakeshop, food from Voula’s Greek Sweets and Lento, drinks from Rochrbach’s and Black Button Distilling, but we’ll also be hosting the first ever BATs!!!

What are the BATs, you ask? Well, they’re like the SATs but WAY more fun! This 50 question test is based off of classes we’ve had at Rochester Brainery over the past year.
