Got extra time on your hands? Disney Plus has a new series called Shop Class with DIY projects that even kids can do. This show was created to give kids a chance to use their hands and their imagination. With experts teaching crafts, carpentry, and building, the show offers step-by-step instruction on all kinds of projects. Lauren Makk is an interior designer seen on TLC and OWN shows. Now, she joins Disney Plus to bring back the nostalgia of making things with Shop Class. She chats with Bold Life about DIY and how the show is good for everyone.
Makk is a successful interior designer, but she had humble beginnings. She grew up in the country without easy access to local stores. Her mother made many things around the house, even their clothes. This was Makk’s normal, and she loved to help her mother. She was a kid who liked to make the bed and fluff the pillows. But Makk didn’t know interior design was a job until she saw it on television. This experience is why she jumped at the chance to work on Shop Class. She gets to gather the best makers and shop class teachers from across the country to teach kids how to work with their hands. And maybe someone will realize their passion for making.
