2022 was a weird year for us! We reexamined how we want to run our business, we started a Face Painting service, and the Littlest KnotHead started Kindergarten. If you are new here, allow us to reintroduce ourselves!
KnotHead Studios officially started in 2016, but the idea for it was simmering long before that. We, (Jeff and Elizabeth) moved to Franklin, TN in 2014 after Elizabeth's father passed away unexpectedly. Prior to that, we had been living in Texas, where we both graduated with multiple degrees in Art, Technology and BioMedical Communication.
Elizabeth was working as a Creative Director for a small education company, as well as working part time as a Makeup and Hair artist for a Bridal Beauty Business. Jeffrey, was working freelancing as a Production Assistant at an animation studio and as a Carpenter for a scenery designer. When Elizabeth's father passed away, Jeffrey inherited her father's extensive wood working studio and they decided to make the move to Tennessee to be closer to her mother.
Once we were established in Tennessee, Jeffrey decided to take his background in carpentry, sculpture and metal smithing and start KnotHead Studios. He found himself with the space, tools and equipment needed to follow his artistic dream. Elizabeth found herself pregnant and tried to help as much as possible. In December of 2016 KnotHead Studios participated in their first event in Franklin, TN
Shortly after the Littlest KnotHead surprised everyone and arrived early in January of 2017. From the very beginning, KnotHead Studios was a family business (with Mumsy as our sales person), and we were very excited to add our Baby Bear to it. We still primarily retail our merchandise at craft shows in the Nashville area, but starting in 2020 our online shop was launched.
Moving forward in 2023 we hope to do at least 1 big show a month during the Spring and Fall with KnotHead Studios, and then participate in a few face painting events monthly throughout the year as time allows. We can not wait to see you this year!
