What you'll learn in this brainy class:

Come learn about what's being made in NYC today and what you can do to support local manufacturing. We'll cover industrial policy, business incubators, R&D, hybrid manufacturing, and the craft food movement, among other highlights. This class examines public policy and current trends.

For decades, American and urban manufacturing charted a steep decline, a byproduct of globalization and outsourcing. Today, however,manufacturing is returning to our shores and entering a renaissance in major cities.

Contemporary manufacturing in New York City has been redefined by a new class of young, energetic and entrepreneurial artists, artisans and small producers. However, industry in New York and especially in Brooklyn must contend with the perennial challenges of gentrification, rezoning and development.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
