Meet-in Series: Businesses & Makers Together

In response to the adapting needs of the Knoxville community, The Maker City is hosting conversations between makers, artists, and the public to highlight how people are using their skills to respond to current events. This program is a weekly chat with local businesses followed by an open discussion, led by Forrest Kirkpatrick of Fork Design.

This week, we will speak with Spencer Ratliff (Old North Designs) and Alex Jaynes (A. Jaynes Woodworks) about their new shared maker space in the Old City — Able Trade — followed by a conversation about working together to meet Knoxville’s needs.

Join us to learn how these makers are stepping out from the norm to meet the needs of our community and how you might find a fit in their new space.
