Default BBC - The Repair Shop

Hi everyone

We've been contacted by the BBC programme The Repair Shop. They are looking for people who'd like to have an antique dolls' house repaired, and we thought this might be of interest to some of you.

Read the full letter below, and if you're interested, get in touch using the contact details below

"BBC2's The Repair Shop are seeking damaged family and community heirlooms for their second series and objects that have special significance during Christmas time for their upcoming Christmas special.

The series follows a team of passionate and skilled crafts people who restore damaged objects of sentimental value. The experts work side by side in beautiful barn nestled deep in the British countryside as they fix, repair and breathe new life into objects brought in by members of the public. The experts are drawn from different disciplines such as furniture repairers, metal workers, mechanics, ceramicists, clock makers, picture conservationists, and up-cyclers, restorers and fabricators of every ilk.

A ragged teddy bear given to a grandparent decades ago, a damaged sleigh that once decorated the town square, a favourite train set a parent would like to pass on to their child Christmas morning, anything of personal sentimental value or importance to a community can be repaired and preserved for generations to come.

The team is especially eager to restore a Victorian Doll house someone may have received at Christmas generations ago.

If you have a precious object you'd like repaired please email repair@ricochet.co.uk or call 01273 224829"


You can find more information here: BBC Shows and Tours - Take Part - The Repair Shop

It should be noted, that their production studio is in the UK, so this is probably only open to UK (and possibly Ireland) residents.

If you decide to contact them and take part, best of luck
