What's Laneway Learning all about?

Alleluya Cafe and Bar, St Kevin's Arcade, Karangahape Road

Laneway Learning hosts informal, social classes in anything and everything. Our classes are taught by people from our local community who know about cool stuff and want to share it with others. Our classes make for a great Tuesday night out - for only $14** come and hang out in Alleluya Cafe and Bar's beautiful space in St Kevin's Arcade on K Road and learn something new to impress your mates!

What can you learn at our classes?

We've got some awesome classes lined up over the next few months:

  • Make your own mini movie!
  • Winter is Coming - learn how to knit a scarf to keep your neck toasty warm!
  • Explore the world through photography!
  • Self-publish that novel!
  • Brew and pour the perfect coffee!
  • Hula hoop like there's no tomorrow!
  • Make a piñata!
  • Create an awesome data map!
  • Streamline your digital life!
  • Play the ukelele!
  • Nuture your body temple with healthy wholefoods cooking!
  • Successfully crowdfund your own project!

Amazing, right?! And so much more to come. But first we need a little help to get us up and running.

Who's behind Laneway Learning Auckland?

The Laneway Learning Auckland team is made up of Fiona, Bex and Tara.

We each bring a diverse range of skills and experience to bear on this project having between us worked in arts and media publicity, radio broadcasting, marketing for tech startups, book publishing and legal private practice. Common to us all is a passion for lifelong learning and a desire to make Laneway Learning Auckland a huge success!

Why are we crowdfunding?

There are some essentials we need to run our classes:

  • A projector and a portable screen
  • Pens and clipboards and paper and all those other exciting stationery things
  • Teachers!
  • The kind folk at Alleluya who will be there to make sure things run smoothly and fix you up with a bevvy or two
  • Public liability insurance because we're borrowing the beautiful space in St Kevin's Arcade to hold our classes

This is where you come in - pledge a little, or a lot, and help us get Laneway Learning off to a cracking start!

Rewards for you!

We're offering a bunch of fantastic rewards when you pledge on our campaign. See the details of all our rewards to the right.

  • If you just want to show us a little love pledge $5, and we'll send some love right back at you!
  • Buy a bunch of classes in advance by choosing our class rewards and save some $$ along the way.
  • Pledge $50 or more and we'll send you an invite to come and party with us at our launch party - date tbc, but soon Party People!
  • And if you like the VIP treatment, fire the big money our way and we'll sort you and 20 of your buddies out with a bunch of fun, private classes held across an afternoon in The Biz Dojo's beautiful big room at the snazzy Ironbank building on K Road (thanks Biz Dojo!).

Take a look at upcoming classes on our website. If there's nothing that tickles your fancy just yet, check back in very soon - we'll be adding new classes every week!

 

**A little fine print: if you select one of our class rewards, you're welcome to choose from any of our upcoming classes, subject to availability. Please note that if your class of choice involves extra material charges we will ask that you cough up for those on the night (usually less than $10)! To redeem your class reward and reserve your spot in an upcoming class, drop us a line at [email protected] and we'll sort you out. The $250/$500 unlimited classes rewards will expire three/six months from the date of the first class you attend.**

 

 Thanks for your support!!

 

With very special thanks to the wonderful Amber Beaton and to One Man Band Video for video footage.
