When we hosted previous Marken workshops in our home, we even had people from outside our community of Devine attend. We had people from outside our social circles travel from San Antonio to our home for the Hand Lettering with Hilary workshop. Their first question when the workshop was over, “Where do we go now?”
When people visit small towns like ours, they want to know what's unique. Where should they go to eat? What shops should they be sure to visit?
That's why we believe partnering with fellow businesses as Marken Community Partners will be mutually beneficial. In order to help create a space that not only inspires the community to connect with each other and foster creativity and growth, we want to give “shout-outs” to those who have helped us along the way.
We plan to create a “Must-Dos while in Devine” brochure/map that will highlight area business services, as well as places to shop and dine. While we will help connect the Devine community in our workshops and the Marken Co.Lab space, we also know that many outside the community may be drawn to Marken, and what better way to showcase our community than to point them to some of our own unique shops and businesses?
