A request from Kirstie

by Folksy Support

Kirstie Allsopp

We were recently contacted by Raise the Roof Productions, owned and run by Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer. Kirstie is making a new crafting series for Channel 4 as well as an accompanying book for the series.  This will be a crafting book full of projects and makes covering a range of crafting disciplines, sounds great doesn’t it?!  Kirsty’s team asked us if we could pass on a message to all of the crafters and makers at Folksy.com –


On Kirstie Allsopp’s brand new Channel 4 craft programme she will be meeting and working with some of Britain’s best crafters but this time she wants you to join her.  Do you have a passion for crafts? Are you an amateur artisan desperate to grow your talent?  Would you like to join Kirstie on her journey to learn new and amazing skills from master craftspeople?  If so, please contact craft@raisetheroofproductions.com for more details.

How exciting, and what a fantastic opportunity!  Leave us a comment and let us know if you will be applying…

Kirsty has always inspired me, this would be a great opportunity but there will probably thousands of applicants and these shows never come to N Ireland.
