The Stories Behind the Songs

The Repair Shop

This is a tribute to the BBC’s inspirational program, The Repair Shop and its many talented craft experts that mend precious personal artefacts for people.

During the  COVID lockdowns, we happily consumed many, many episodes of The Repair Shop. We delighted in the stories of the objects owners, and how the crafts people always found a way to bring their objects back to their former glory.

Because so many people provide their skill and talents to the show, I created a series of mini-songs dedicated to each of the regular repair shop specialists. Coming up with the style and lyrics for each was a fun challenge.

My Partner, who loves the show just as much as I do, wrote a blog article about life lessons that we can take from the show.
