    I wish I wasn’t too chicken to apply.. but I also work full time and would never be able to get the time off. Sounds fun, especially with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman!

  2. Shannon

    I feel like I’m too old to do this. Do you think they are looking for pretty 20 year olds?

      I don’t think so, where’s the fun in that?! Lol. It says age isn’t looked at for the creative criteria. Go for it!

    I took a look at the application, definitely doesn’t look like it’s for a casual crafter (like myself). Pretty detailed. Hopefully a hip2saver gets to do it though, that’d be pretty cool!

    Looked it over…I guess you go on for the exposure only? I didn’t see anything about prize winnings…maybe im.greedy.

      Each week eight all-around makers, from all walks of life, will take on a series of projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler, Offerman and our expert judges. Over the course of each episode, the contestants must tackle a different theme, hand-making items in different disciplines โ€” the difficulty of which increases with every episode until a winner is crown. Shot in an outdoor setting, the series will also focus on the characters and camaraderie of those who enjoy creating their own crafts, all under the comedic guidance of Poehler and Offerman.
