The Chalk Market
The Chalk Market started with a creative vision and a few chalk pencils in November 2016. Ashley has always been a lover of all things DIY, rustic, and vintage. Being a wife and mother herself she used chalkboard signs in her wedding and showers, and realized what a classic trend they were. She became self taught in calligraphy and designed a technique to teach others how to make custom chalkboards themselves.
In July 2017, Sarah and Ashley collaborated together and knew they could take this little art biz to the next level. With over nine years of management experience under her belt they’ve combined their two sets of skills and created the perfect fit. In September 2017 they began teaching classes in local bars, restaurants, and lounges. Once the new year came they knew they needed to continue to branch out and started offering classes in wood signs, plant design, wine glass etching and more. In June 2018 they decided to take the plunge and open a studio space in the community they were raised in. They’re excited with the growth of their little business but know they can offer even more to the area when it comes to creativity.
