Calling all amateur woodworkers & furniture makers...

Make It for Market is an exciting new series for all types of amateur artisans and crafters, from potters, blacksmiths and woodworkers, to jewellers, upcyclers and artists. The programme will follow a select group of amateur makers who'll be mentored through the practicalities and pitfalls of turning a hobby into a business.

Expert mentors and the show host will guide amateurs through what it takes to transform their hobby into a business, giving them the knowledge and opportunity to transform their lives.


Filming will begin in April 2022.

How it works
• Each amateur crafter will be introduced to the 'maker in chief' and series host – this person is a secret for now but will be revealed soon!

• Each amateur crafter is paired up with a mentor suitable for them. Amateur and mentor get to know one another and the amateur shows examples of their work to the mentor.

• Amateur goes through a series of 'challenges' to see what they like, what they don't, what they enjoy most and what kind of maker and seller they want to be

• Challenges may include making their favourite piece, the four-hour making challenge, a high-end make as well as an online challenge

• The series culminates at the big market where the team of amateurs will sell their wares
