Have you seen The Repair Shop?

BBC’s The Repair Shop is a place where Britain’s most skilled and caring craftspeople rescue and resurrect items that owners thought were beyond saving. Their shared love of craft has helped hundreds of people recover and relive cherished memories, and inspired millions to rediscover their own prized possessions. The skill required to properly restore those items may be beyond most of us, but there are small things we can all do to care for the items we love the most. How do you replenish the stuffing in your child’s beloved, tatty teddy bear, for instance? Or remove a water mark left on your wooden table? What’s the best way to prevent your leather from cracking?

The Repair Shop is a British television series made by production company Ricochet that aired on BBC Two for series 1 to 3 and BBC One for series 4, in which family heirlooms are restored for their owners by experts.

Furniture restorer Jay Blades acts as the foreman. Each episode follows craftspeople who restore family heirlooms that have sentimental value for their owners. The craftspeople are professionals from around the country.

Heirlooms are found mostly through social media, and their owners are not charged for the restorations.

The Repair Shop is filmed at Weald and Downland Living Museum in Singleton, West Sussex. The Court Barn is the principal setting, though some repairs are carried out in the Victorian smithy and nearby wagon shed.
