MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WVLT) – Painting front door signs and wall canvases brings a creative satisfaction to Alisha Griffith, now that she is proceeding with her family business, Black Arrow Woodworks, full time. There was a time when she might not have been able to proceed as smoothly with her entrepreneurial dreams without the help of a shared workspace nearby.
“Had our woodshop in our backyard burn down,” said Griffith. “So, all of our tools burned, like everything. So we started to use the maker space a little bit more.”
Griffith is one of a small group of members now supporting the Morristown Makers, which President David Peach leads. He said you can try out the tools in this space even without becoming a member. “It’s fine for them to just come on Thursday nights (7:00 – 9:00 pm) for that two-hour slot and then we can help them with their projects.”
