Smart + Becker is a private studio in Knoxville that acts as a hub for creative incubation and is currently home to DIY Anywhere, Founding Space, and the namesake maker-centric marketing studio, Smart + Becker Creative.

Choose an event below to come join us at the space for either an open house, First Friday event, pop-up shop, or workshop.




DIY Anywhere is bonding while making. Private DIY workshops are the perfect way to spend meaningful time together in Knoxville. Making something with your hands among people you love, hang with, and work with is a great way to build bonds and strengthen connections. Plus, 5% of every workshop you book goes back to helping support youth, right in your community, through the West TEA program.

 Private DIY workshops are great for all kinds of occasions and people. We’ll even come to you so you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home or business. Learn more and reserve your spot by clicking one of the categories below. And if you book in 2018, each attendee gets to make TWO projects — one for themselves and one to help them mark an item off their holiday gift list.




S+B Creative is a small marketing studio headed up by founder Ryan-Ashley Anderson who focuses on marketing, product development, and brand strategy for makers. Learn more about her process and experience HERE.
