Tennessee Craft





Independent makers are responsible for the creation of one-of-a-kind products and the finances, marketing and sales of their business. Tennessee Craft offers an annual, one-day professional development workshop to help artists grow their craft careers. Our workshops bring professionals together to share emerging trends and best practices on the most important topics artists want based on our workshop and member surveys.

Proceeds from our professional development workshops fund our member summer study scholarships.
