The Anxious Millennials

Started in Austin, TX, in 2017, Draft & Craft began as a pop-up art market, partnering with local drinkeries to host immersive events and highlight local makers. Today, Draft & Craft holds that same foundation but has evolved into much more. We aim to create opportunities for small businesses, artists, and makers to get in front of more people and share more of their creative work. Our focus is creating memorable experiences for Louisvillians and supporting the creative culture we love here in our city.

Tabby grabbing a quick bite at RecBar to plan about the next D&C event.

Tabby is a native-born Texan who moved to Louisville in 2021. She immediately fell in love with the culture, community, food, and fun this fantastic city offers. She made it her goal to experience as much as possible and become locally fluent, learning about iconic neighborhoods, breweries, music venues, restaurants, and hidden gems around Louisville. Tabby enjoys painting cartoons from her childhood, writing poetry, and exploring the city with friends.

Michael was born in rural Kentucky, moved to Louisville over a decade ago, and considers the city his home. He's a maker and artist by night with an appetite for challenging and fun builds. Michael is currently dabbling in visual arts, such as oil painting, woodworking, and interactive cardboard sculpture. Michael likes to tinker, continuously learns new things, and has fallen in love with the local arts culture.

Over ten years ago, Tabby and Michael met to build websites for small businesses and found the common thread we loved to share; art and millennial culture. This shared love of small business, libations, art, and locality is what brought their partnership to fruition. Together, they've relaunched Draft & Craft in Louisville, KY, as an event and arts marketing collective, partnering with their favorite local spots and talented creatives to showcase the coolest shit in the River City.
