Get to know the new HBO crafting star.

 

LaurDIY Craftopia

 

As we have announced in a previous post, HBO is about to release a brand new show about crafting. The name of this production is Craftopia. It’s oriented to children and early teenagers who love crafting. By now, we know that every episode is going to be competition around a specific crafting project. Contestants will have to do their best to impress the jury. The only name that has been revealed is the host and executive producer, Lauren Riihimaki.

 

 

Also known as LaurDIY, Lauren Kobayashi Riihimaki is a Canadian YouTuber and crafter. She was born in August 1993. Lauren joined YouTube in late 2011 when she was still a college student. She pursued a degree in Graphic Communications Management. At the beginning of her Internet journey, all her videos were about sewing. Needlework is still one of her passions, but nowadays, her focus has become broader.

Craftopia is not the first streaming project involving Lauren Riihimaki. In 2017, Facebook Watch premiered her web series, Served by LaurDIY. She also has several active commercial projects. Fans can buy her official merchandising in her Amazon Merch store. Platforms like Target and Walmart sell her branded DIY kits.

 

 

By the moment this post is released, Lauren’s channel has 8,9 million subscribers. Her popularity is one of the most significant claims of HBO’s new release, but it’s not the only one. On the Teaser of the show, we’ve already seen the spectacular set, featuring a fantastic collection of crafting supplies. The first chapter will be available next Thursday, May 28.

We are looking forward to discovering their first crafty challenge!
