At Smart + Becker, we believe the key to success as a maker or artist is having the opportunity to test and develop products in the retail marketplace, show your work to a captive audience, and share your expertise with an eager community. To this end, we offer exhibition, consignment, pop-up shop, and DIY workshop opportunities for creatives of all kinds.
DIY workshops are taught by artists, makers, and creatives who teach a range of subjects including coiled bowl-making, visible mending, embroidery, knitting and spinning, hand-lettering, jewelry-making, and floral arranging, to name a few...
FIRST FRIDAY ART SHOWS + POP-up shops
Each month we feature a different artist or maker, and the opening reception falls on the First Friday of that month. Visitors are able to experience a meaningful body of work as well as meet the artist.
All goods are handmade by independent designers and include home goods crafted by leatherworkers and textile designers, hand-stitched and thoughtfully designed leather accessories, handmade jewelry, small-batch clothing, and more.
