Jaime Smialek runs local blog She Wore It Anyways and has had great success. She also runs a blog for her business Our Ampersand Photography. She’s excited to share what she’s learned in the process of building readership and creating quality content.

Anderson Bailey and Jessie Bean are a Southern duo producing small batch slip cast ceramics. All items are made locally in Highland Park at Artifact, an artist’s collective that they helped co-found. The duo behind Bean and Bailey will be sharing what it’s taken to become successful makers and the reality of their business here in Chattanooga.

Feel free to send questions ahead of time to: or

We’ll have drinks and a brief presentation by both artists as well as Q&A!
