Make Do and Mend- New TV show co-presented by yours truly

(Presenters: Lucia Kempsey, Simon Wright, Jo Behari)

Last summer I was shortlisted for a craft expert TV presenter role, and after a lot of nailbiting and embarrassing appearances in front of the camera, I got it!

Last autumn we filmed 20 episodes for Channel 4 for the series which is called Make Do And Mend and features 3 experts: me, the craft expert Jo Behari, the DIY expert and Simon Wright, the food expert. We spent time with a different group of people each week, in a different town or city teaching people how live life more thriftily. We tackled all sorts of projects for the show, I showed contributors how to make and upcycle all sorts of things including including reupholstering, altering clothing, charity shopping, making driftwood mirrors, and tonnes more simple projects, and all on the super-cheap!

The show starts next Monday at 12.05pm on Channel 4 and runs for 20 episodes each weekday for 4 weeks. Please watch if you can and also head over to the Make Do and Mend Facebook page
