Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop – 8 September 2021 – 8/9/2021 – Wednesday – BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 3 of 6

David, a sheep farmer from the Yorkshire Dales, wants to nominate another farmer, Sam, for a surprise thank you. Last year during lambing season, David and his wife caught Covid-19, and David ended up in hospital at this crucial time of year. Sam, who first came to work with David as a teenager, left his own farm and sheep 200 miles away and came to David’s farm, rounded up his 140 sheep and took them across country to lamb alongside 350 of his own, saving many animals’ lives. Ciaran and his team take on a technically challenging build, crafting a beautiful picnic box complete with a drawer and mini table to thank Sam for his help. For newbie fine furniture makers Les and Ant, it’s their first time attempting tricky dovetail joints – are they up for the challenge?

Ryan and Michelle come to the workshop to meet Jay. Ryan lived on the streets for six years until he was helped by Becky and Shelley, two women who set up a charity in Leeds called Homeless Street Angels. Becky had experienced homelessness herself, but after she turned her life around, she wanted to support others. Expert woodworker Isabelle and her team make a beautiful angel wings sculpture for Ryan to thank the two sisters. But bending wood into shape is a tricky, delicate job that Isabelle’s team have never attempted before.

Finally, Saf’s team create a pair of sundials to thank two teenagers who love the outdoors and volunteer regularly in their local park, litter-picking to keep it looking its best.

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.
