Isaac Watson is a facilitator. He’s the guy who can see how to build the structure that others move about in order to connect, share, and learn from. Hailing from Portland, Isaac has been involved in the craft world as both a maker and as a founder of I Heart Art, a collaboration between Etsy, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Museum of Contemporary Craft and the Portland Etsy Team. He doesn’t accept the idea that some people are right-brained and others left-brained, and he expects a high bar to be set in terms of individuals doing more for themselves. All that being said, Isaac is also magnanimous, articulate, and open. Incidentally, I feel like I did so much talking because I see Isaac as having lots of answers for questions that I have had over the years. His latest project, Maker’s Nation, is set to give creative people an outlet to help give them business skills, connect with other makers, and a chance to not be so self-isolating…and hopefully in the future a health care plan. Keep an eye on him. If there’s an organization that he’s leading, you don’t need to join, but at least show up for the first few meetings.
