A Conversation with Doug Laney, President of Knox Makers
"I got involved with Knox Makers in early 2011, which is a few months after it got started. The term "makerspace" was still relatively new back then, but even at that time the idea of having a shared workspace where people could combine resources to have access to a much better workspace than they could afford individually seemed amazing."
Knoxville officially became The Maker City this year.
With generous support from the City of Knoxville and the inspired brand identity gifted to the City by local firm Designsensory, we have claimed Knoxville’s place on the national maker stage.

Knoxville Weekend nails it again, creating this stunning video on behalf of The Maker City.

It seems like December 1 pops up on the calendar and the mad rush to reinvent our lives and improve all of our (perceived) shortcomings becomes our nagging focus. We look at our businesses, our fitness and health, our relationships - we reluctantly say "this year, I'm really going to do it!" and after a month or two, our goals peter out and we go back to the resignation that new year goals setting doesn't work. Read on for Steph Crowder's 5-Step goal setting activity that you can do at home!
Being The Maker City, Knoxville has an abundance of talented craftspeople, makers, designers, and artists of all kinds creating one-of-a-kind pieces. We encourage you to shop local and give handmade items year round. Each piece comes with a story about who made it and how it was made. It also feels good to support Knoxville and its small-scale manufacturers.
