Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop – 15 September 2021 – 15/9/2021 – Wednesday – BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 4 of 6

Jez and Shane from Huddersfield come to the workshop to tell Jay about a guy known as Mr Bob. He set up a mental health charity for men in the local station called Platform 1 and has helped hundreds of men in crisis, including Shane. They’d like Jay and his team to come up with a chair for Mr Bob to say thank you. Expert woodworker Ciaran designs a contemporary wingback chair set on a pedestal. It’s a challenge for Les and Ant, but a lot of love goes into this chair, as it turns out that for them this build is personal.

Jay travels across Bradford to a part of the city called Manningham. Here, he meets PC Husnain, who tells Jay that, having grown up there surrounded by gangs, his life could have turned out very differently if it hadn’t been for a youth worker called Sharat. He wants to thank Sharat for keeping him on the straight and narrow and for helping lots of local young people over the years in the centre that he runs. Saf and his team craft an oak grandfather-style clock to celebrate Sharat and all the time he gives to others.

Finally, Isabelle and her team make a brass inlayed picture frame from reclaimed iroko wood to thank Imran – a local tailor who tirelessly helps his community and used his skills to make scrubs for doctors during the first lockdown.

About Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop

Jay Blades opens the doors to his brand new workshop in Bradford.

In each episode, members of the public nominate local heroes from across Yorkshire to receive a bespoke, handmade piece of wooden furniture to recognise the work they do for their community, often going above and beyond. Jay hears first-hand what makes each local hero special and why they are deserving of this thank you.

Jay gives the task of making the items to one of his three experts in the workshop. Ciaran, Isabelle and Saf are three of the country’s best fine furniture makers, who create stunning designs each week.

Making the items with the experts are six passionate woodworkers from the surrounding area who have all come to the workshop to learn from the experts they’re teamed with and working alongside. Each has a personal reason to be here, and the series explores their lives whilst following how they go about making each item and learning on the job.

This show is broadcast on BBC Two, also known as the British Broadcasting Corporation.
