The Repair Shop: Tales from the Workshop of Dreams

by Karen Farrington

Every object tells a story...We all have treasures hidden away in the attic, well-loved and well-worn belongings that have been passed down from generation to generation. They may be damaged or no longer working, but we can't bear to part with them. The expert craftspeople of hit BBC series The Repair Shop are dedicated to restoring and conserving these heirlooms. They know that the true worth of these possessions doesn't lie in their monetary value, but in the memories they hold and the stories they tell.This remarkable new book takes you inside the workshop of dreams to discover some of the most moving stories from the series, including some previously unseen restorations. From a grandmother's music box lovingly restored so that it once again plays the tunes remembered from childhood, to the leather armchair saved from the Nazis and damaged in a bombing raid, these restorations offer a fascinating and emotional glimpse into the personal histories of people from across the UK.A much-needed antidote to today's throwaway culture, Stories from the Workshop of Dreams reveals the hidden life of our favourite things.
