Do you dream of singing somewhere other than the shower? Long to learn how to brew your own beer? Want to become a website whiz? Allow me to introduce you to Dabble, a Chicago company dedicated to helping people try new hobbies, meet new people and learn new skills.
Debunking all of the negatives that go along with learning a new skill (it’s too expensive, the time commitment is too much, etc.), Dabble makes it easy to learn a new skill or share a passion through one-time affordable classes. From woodworking to sewing machine basics to wine tasting, Dabble has something for everyone.
Dabble lets local “teachers” submit class ideas and once approved, helps spread the word about the class using social networks and marketing tips. Attendees are able to register for classes via the Dabble website. Most classes cost $20 to attend with half of the registration fee going in the teacher’s pocket. Not only does Dabble promote local instructors, they also hold all of their events at local venues, many of which are mom-and-pop coffee shops and cafés.
