The barter system is the founding principle of Trade School, where teachers offer knowledge in exchange for items large and small (and even intangible, like help finding an apartment). Crafty classes like embroidery, kite making, and book folding are offered alongside lectures on topics including "How to Delete Your Facebook and Feel Good About It" and "Burnout Prevention for Activists." Some weekend classes will be held at the Cuchifritos project space at 120 Essex Street, near Rivington Street, through April 30. See the full list of course offerings here.
