About the Show

Welcome to Maker Nation! Host Ashley Adams, a crafter in her own right, meets different makers and artists across America. Each has a unique story to tell, and an amazing skill to share. Viewers will be captivated by the backstory of each maker, awed by their skills, and feel a sense of inspiration to create something unique of their own. To close out each episode, Ashley leads a “Craft Course” tutorial showing viewers how they can make something artful out of simple items lying around their house.
