Sabrina Grant presents as a team of expert crafters transform unused objects into contemporary and functional items.

A beautiful and unusual Polish cloak is brought to the workshop. It belonged to Linda’s musician father, who was born in Poland. He wore the cloak when playing at events celebrating Polish folk music. Now it is a connection to music and her dad, but Linda would love to see it become something she can see and use every day. Master upholsterer Alex and blacksmithing sculptor Leigh have very different ideas for Linda to choose from.

A clapped-out trailer and an enormous wooden garden playhouse are in the workshop today. Danny’s new house doesn’t have the space for them, and both items have seen better days. But the playhouse in particular brings back precious memories of family time and having fun. Woodworking wonder woman Daisy and metal sculptor Leigh compete for the chance to make radical transformations.

Ken arrives with a collection of family rings and gemstones that he would like jewellery maker Disa to make sparkle again as something new. His mum in particular loved jewellery, and Ken thinks creating something special from the collection would be an ideal heirloom to pass down to the next generations. Disa’s expertise guarantees the transformation will be perfect.

And mechanics and metals expert Titch has a favour to ask of seamstress Elizabeth. Titch is a former Royal Marine Commando and served for 20 years in the military. His dress uniform, regimental t-shirts and other military clothing are shut away in drawers, but they hold so many memories for him. Elizabeth comes up with a stunning artwork that leaves normally talkative Titch lost for words. Show less
