Want To Craft With Ron Swanson?

OK, so maybe you won’t be crafting with Ron Swanson but you will be doing so under the dutiful eyes of Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler. NBC has ordered a six episode series called “The Handmade Project” in which contestants will work to take on increasingly difficult projects. The goal is to dazzle and delight the judges. Like many reality TV shows, this will be a fun guilty indulgence but before it goes to air it needs to find the right contestants. Do you have what it takes to make the judges swoon?

Want to apply?


The application process is appropriately lengthy and requires the submission of a video. The landing page for the application sets the tone for an exciting endeavor and reminds applicants they must be at least eighteen or older to participate. Not everyone who applies will get a response, but if you do, I want to know about it!


When asked about the project, Offerman offered up this sound bite:

“People who make things are my favorite kind of folk. Practical, clever and terrific in a pinch. That makes me tickled pink to have a front row seat at this prodigious display of talent, and admiring and cheering on an amazing crop of American makers. Plus, Amy and I have a strong tradition of tomfoolery so let’s see if we don’t have some good fun.”

Now, if you need help completing the 103 question application, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. One of my services is helping artists shine through their text. I’ll bet a well written statement of intent would get the judges attention, wouldn’t you?
