Jay Blades: Making It

Asset 2

The Bluebird and Picador 

Jay Blades, much-loved presenter of The Repair Shop, furniture restorer extraordinaire, and author of Sunday Times top 10 bestseller, Making It, opens up about his life – from growing up on the rough streets of Hackney, dealing with racism and hanging out with the wrong crowds, to becoming one of TV’s most recognisable faces. Jay’s journey to fame has had tough patches, but love and community have seen him through. An expert at giving a second life to cherished items, Jay’s positivity, pragmatism and kindness show that with care and love, anything can be mended.
