Synopsis

'Heartwarming, magical and uplifting'



In today's throwaway culture, there's a counter movement growing that urges us to 'make do and mend'. The BBC's The Repair Shop has brought this waste-conscious message to an even wider audience, with its regular viewing figures of 7 million in the UK alone, cementing itself as a classic series in the vein of Antiques Roadshow.



This new book concentrates on the show's much-loved experts, including woodworker and furniture restorer Will Kirk, clock restorer Steve Fletcher, metalworker Dominic Chinea, silversmith Brenton West, leatherworker Suzie Fletcher, upholsterer Sonnaz Nooranvary, and seamstresses Julie Tatchell & Amanda Middleditch - aka The Teddy Bear Ladies. Each of the experts shares their own stories and their repairs, capturing in the process the magic and ethos of the barn. Includes quotations and Q & As from the experts as well as Jay Blades on some unique restoration collaborations.



With the focus on the experts themselves, readers will feel as though they're stepping straight into the 'workshop of dreams' and experiencing first hand the magic of the barn.

Elizabeth Wilhide is a leading expert on design and interiors. She has written numerous books on the subject, including William Morris: Decor and Design, Pattern Design and The Great Pottery Throw Down. Enter a workshop filled with expert craftspeople as they bring loved pieces of family history and the memories they hold, back to life. In his Foreword, Jay Blades explains the unique magic of the Repair Shop barn, then each of the expert craftspeople reveal the inside stories of their craft and the repairs of treasured possessions that keep family history live using their heritage craft skills. As a heartwarming and uplifting antidote to throwaway culture, The Repair Shop has become essential TV viewing across the generations and has established itself as a firm favourite, in the vein of Antiques Roadshow.
