Despite the pandemic, these viewers were eager to share their crafts’ skills. Below are the top entries selected by the celebrity Final Judges. Our Grand Prize Winner’s 10-episode web series will launch later this year, followed by the three-episode web series from our Second Prize Winner. Over the coming months we’ll share many of the other top-scoring videos. They represent some truly unique ideas and crafting skills, from making a surfboard in Hawaii to creating pottery in Florida and woodworking in North Carolina to metalworking in Illinois.
