In reality competition Making It, craft makers from all walks of life take on a series of projects. Over the course of each episode, the contestants must tackle a different theme, hand-making items in different disciplines — the difficulty of which increases with every episode until a winner is crowned.

A six-episode series from executive producers, hosts and pop-culture’s favorite comedic best friends, Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.

The series brings together eight of the country’s most talented Makers to tackle a variety of handmade projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler and Offerman as well as judges Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York, and Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy trend expert. ‘At the very most, you will fall in love with our Makers, get introduced to a world you may not know anything about and even get inspired to make something at home! At the very least, you will learn what vellum is,’ Poehler said. ‘As a woodworker myself, I’m awfully proud to showcase all these talented Makers and be reunited with my charismatic pal Amy to boot,’ Offerman said.

‘The question is: Is America thready for this? (Strap in, our show will be pun heavy).’ Every show will revolve around a central theme that draws inspiration from hugely popular nationwide trends in crafting and DIY, which the whole family can enjoy. Each episode of the competition will consist of two projects, cleverly designed by Poehler and Offerman, that test the Makers’ ability to think outside of the box in unpredictable ways.

Believing there is no better way to express yourself than by making things by hand, the challenges are also designed to bring out skilled insights and takeaway, touching personal stories and lots of laughs. First, the ‘faster-craft’ round will be a timed challenge that will test their ability to not only work quickly but imaginatively as well.

Next, the Makers will move to the ‘master craft collection,’ a one-of-a-kind themed challenge in which the competitors will need to use their expertise and get inventive in order to assemble a winning craft that fits the theme of that week. In the end, only one will emerge victorious and be named ‘Master Maker.’
