Learn Series

The Lab Series began in 2017 with a conversation between Athensmade & Athens Tech about self-taught Instagram celebrity, Shayna Hobbs, co-owner of Sons of Sawdust. We brainstormed about how to share Shayna's expert knowledge with the Athens community. Out of that collaborative brainstorm, The Social Lab was born. The Social Lab was carried out in an installment of 5 classes focused on social media.

Over 230 local businesses attended this pilot Lab Series and asked for more! We answered with a February 2018 Intern Lab with local expert Amy Flurry of Recipe for Press. The Lab Series continues summer 2018 with a 3-month class series. The topic of the summer 2018 Lab Series will be determined by Athensmade's members.
