Handmade: Britain’s Best Woodworker press pack

Category: Press Pack

In this brand-new competition format, Mel Giedroyc introduces nine of the country’s most talented craftspeople, as they battle it out to be crowned Britain’s Best Woodworker.

Wood isn't just good - it's magnificent, and in skilful hands it can be transformed into the most spectacular of objects. This series celebrates the beauty of the raw material and the craftsmanship of those who are good at working with it. 

Mel Giedroyc rules the workshop which is nestled in ancient woodland in Wales' Glanusk Estate as, each week, the woodworkers compete against each other with a big build that supersizes the skills they've honed at home and a surprise challenge that tests their core skills. 

The woodworkers will fight hammer and nail, building wonderful works of wood in just two days that combine epic scale with fine craftsmanship and cutting-edge design. But they'll have to impress the judges - award-winning architect Alex de Rijke and queen of furniture-making Helen Welch - to remain in the competition. 

Handmade: Britain’s Best Woodworker is made by Plimsoll Productions.

Thursday 21st October at 8pm on Channel 4 and All 4
