Lauren Riihimaki Shares How New Show 'Craftopia' Is Going to Change Crafting

Lauren Riihimaki is dishing on her new show Craftopia!

The 26-year-old YouTuber, also known as LaurDIY, just debuted her new competition series on HBO Max.

Lauren opened up about the show and how it’s going to change things in the world of crafting.

“I think crafting has never really gotten the spotlight that it deserves and I think Craftopia is really going to change that,” she told People. “I think anything that occupies your mind and hands while getting creative is such a fun release and being able to stay busy while doing something fun is really relaxing.”

“There’s just so much creative innovation that these kids bring to the challenges,” Lauren continued. “I grew up in a different generation where we didn’t have access to learning how to master any kind of craft medium that you possibly could think of through the internet. They all really came with their own expertise, and I was there to motivate them and give a few tips, but I learned so much from them.”

“I feel like I’m in the big leagues,” she added. “Obviously producing YouTube videos is home grown and it’s very entrepreneurial, but it was such an honor to be part of such a collaborative effort. If I had an idea, they were so down to execute it. I feel like they really trusted me and my digital expertise.”
