From the makers of The Repair Shop comes a new six-part BBC 2 programme, and they are looking for skilled crafts people and community nominations.
Each hour-long programme will see presenter Jay Blades and a gang of volunteers build beautiful furniture for deserving local people in a workshop set within the heart of a community.
Whether it’s chairs, cabinets or cocktail bars, Jay and his team will lovingly create each bespoke piece from scratch, before revealing it as a surprise to the deserving recipient.
But it’s not just the recipients who’ll benefit from the process. Jay knows from his own experience that the sheer joy of making something with your hands can have a transformative effect on confidence and happiness. Now he wants to bring that experience to his workshop volunteers, each with their own personal motivation for joining the team.
Now is your chance to appear in the programme, or to nominate a deserving recipient.
Are you a master carpenter, cabinet maker or furniture restorer with a passion for creating one of a kind items? They are looking for experts from all walks of life to become one of their team of skilled volunteers. If you are interested in this, please contact one of the producers: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
