Show Your Creative Spirit

Join host Matt Burchett on a tour of the ages through creative processes practiced by modern artisans, makers and crafts folk. In each program we meet talented people creating beautiful art, useful devices, delicious food and much more.

We learn about their inspirations, the steps they took to begin and evolve their talents and artistry. Burchett, for example, has worked in construction and other fields using his hands and developing skills before finding his place at the anvil as a blacksmith.
