Apply for ‘Make It At Market’ series 2

The makers of the popular crafters’ mentoring tv series ‘Make It At Market’ are looking for amateur artists and crafters to take part in the second series of the programme. The first series aired recently on BBC 1 and iPlayer and was hosted by ‘The Repair Shop’ regular Dom Chimea.

In series 1, four glass artists were among those featured on the show, which aims to help talented craftspeople turn their passion into a career. Participants are mentored through the process, with advice from professionals in their chosen field. In series 1, each maker was also given an exciting opportunity to help them boost their career, ranging from exhibiting at top end events to having their work featured in specialist galleries.

The glass artists in series 1 were mentored by Allister Malcolm, whose studio is based at the Stourbridge Glass Museum in the Midlands.

Now Flabbergast TV, the makers of the programme, are looking for more aspiring craftspeople who want to turn their hobby into a business.

Applications are welcome from all communities and cultures, people with disabilities and disadvantaged backgrounds. However you must be over 18 to apply.

Expressions of interest are not a guarantee of taking part.
