Next Episode of Making It is
Making It brings together eight of the country's most talented Makers to tackle a variety of handmade projects with the hopes of impressing hosts Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman as well as judges Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York, and Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy trend expert. 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.
In the series premiere, hosts Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman welcome eight makers to the competition with a faster craft challenge that reveals each maker's secret beast and a master craft challenge that puts a contemporary twist on family heirlooms.
Everyone comes from somewhere, and each Maker's background shapes their unique crafting style! This is especially true on the second week of Making It, where the theme this week is homes! Amy and Nick kick off the episode by challenging the Makers to work small and create a hometown terrarium that represent in miniature what makes their hometowns so special. After giving Amy, Nick, and the judges a glimpse into their past, the Makers then must embrace their inner child in the Master Craft Challenge. They create an impressive child's play collection consisting of a fort and toy for the kids in their lives! At the end of the episode, Amy & Nick reluctantly say goodbye to the Maker who's execution didn't live up to the original vision, but not without plenty of laughs along the way.
Like anything you learn to master, it's important to be sure that it stays fun! And, because nothing is more fun than a good party, this week's theme is entertaining. First up, Nick and Amy ask the Makers to design spectacular snack stadiums that will be the real MVPs of the sports party! Most of the Makers have never worked with edible crafts before, so it's a real challenge. Overall, the Makers elevated approach to tackling the challenge from an aesthetic POV leaves Nick hungry for meats and cheeses. The Makers keep the party going with this week's Master Craft Challenge, where they use recycled materials to create essential items for a backyard bonanza. They must put together a themed party with seating for four and an outdoor activity. The Makers impress the judges with their spectacular themes and ingenious use of repurposed materials but sadly the party is over for one Maker whose creative bonanza fails to come together as a cohesive collection.
On week four of Making It, Amy, Nick and the Makers are celebrating the holidays.. all at once! The Maker's kick off the festivities with the scariest holiday of them all, Halloween. They'll have to get crafty in order to design inventive costumes for a last minute costume party using common household materials. The Makers lean hard into the puns for their concepts, with one in particular scaring the socks off of the competition with a frightening ensemble. Having impressed the judges with their spook-tacular costumes, the Makers are tasked with bringing holiday cheer to the whole neighborhood. For this week's Master Craft challenge, the Makers each pick their favorite holiday and create a festive display for their home's front door. The result is as fun as Christmas morning as all of the maker's holiday doors compete for curb appeal in one epic block party. In the end, the Makers put together displays that would make any neighbor jealous, though the holiday celebrations must be cut short for one of our Makers who's festive work lacked a bit of originality.
In a celebration of the great outdoors, the makers bring nature inside as they create light fixtures made from natural materials, then they take the indoors out by transforming ordinary backyard sheds into unique personal spaces.
The day the Makers have all been waiting for also happens to be the big day for one lucky couple! The final three makers must utilize their crafting expertise to transform one couple's wedding into an incredible, handcrafted experience, which Nick Offerman will personally officiate in the craft barn. The Makers must create a dream wedding backdrop for the bride and groom, as well as an heirloom quality handmade gift that could last for generations.
