The Chattery Celebrates Moving Into A Larger Space With A Full Week Of Classes And Events

Monday, December 2, 2019
Local nonprofit, The Chattery, has expanded its space and class offerings by moving into a new location. After a successful crowdfunding campaign earlier this year, they were able to secure a new 2,500 square foot space on Rossville Avenue. The move took place in mid-November and they’re celebrating their official grand re-opening this week with two major events.

On Tuesday The Chattery will host programming all day (noon-7 p.m.) in honor of Giving Tuesday. Guests can stop by for: 

noon - Holiday-themed crafts
2 p.m.
- Refuel/recharge with light snacks, coffee and treats from NoBaked Cookie Dough
5 p.m. - Happy Hour by donation

Donations are encouraged for all activities and will benefit The Chattery’s scholarship program, which gives more lifelong learners access to their classes.

During Mainx24 on Saturday, The Chattery will celebrate its official grand opening party from noon-5 p.m. The party will feature a $5 champagne bar, music from DJ  MCPRO and hands-on art activities. Instead of a traditional ribbon-cutting, they’re hosting a sabrage at 2 p.m. 

“We’re so excited to show off our new space,” says Jennifer Holder, operations headmaster for The Chattery. “We loved being in Chattanooga WorkSpace over the last two years and fortunately for us, we outgrew our studio there and we’re now able to offer more classes in a much larger space.”

The Chattery’s new space is located at 1800 Rossville Ave., Suite 108, and both events this week are free and open to the public, with donations accepted. For a list of grand opening week classes, visit thechattery.org/classes.

A Better Plan Is Needed For Quarry Golf Course At Mountain Creek
