Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop – 25 August 2021 – 25/8/2021 – Wednesday – BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 2 of 6

Angie, a matron at Airedale General Hospital in West Yorkshire, nominates a local primary school, St. Anne’s in Keighley. During lockdown, children from the school fundraised for the hospital, raising over ten times their initial £200 target by taking part in sponsored exercise. Their donation has helped fund the hospital’s wellbeing gardens, which staff, patients and families use for respite. To thank them, expert woodworker Saf and his team build a huge rainbow bookshelf for the school’s library, designed to encourage the children to read. It’s a struggle at times for Jabbar, who confides to Jay and his team mate Kate about his learning difficulties.

Jay travels to Hebden Bridge in the Calder Valley – an area that has suffered from heavy flooding and damage in the past few years. Here he meets local resident Karen, who wants to nominate Trevor, a volunteer flood warden who has helped Karen and other local residents when their homes have been devastated. Isabelle’s team get to work on an armchair and footstool inspired by a local bridge as a surprise thank you for Trevor – but some tricky joinery really pushes the team.

Finally, Ciaran’s team create a raised dog bed for Kane. He’s the devoted companion and helper of 9-year-old Jack, a fun-loving boy who, despite having Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, helps with clinical research. The bed will let Kane share Jack’s room with more comfort.

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.
