The Miniviews series

This series profiles a wide variety of makers, asking these talented individuals two questions. That’s it, two questions. As makers, we all need to support each other in getting out there and making things. With that, brevity is key.

Check out some posts from the Miniviews series, providing insight from makers of all kind.

NBC's Making It interview series

Presented, produced, and hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, Making It is NBC's craft-off television show. The makers - woodworkers, felt crafters, interior designers, and other brands of makers - are very talented individuals who's skills are put to the test in this competition series.

Having recognized the passion, drive, and pure enjoyment of making things that each Making It contestant illustrates, Makerviews is excited to have the chance to highlight, feature, and share insights from each contestant. This interview series gives a deeper look into these makers' lives. Article format based off of the Miniviews series. Learn more about this series.
