The Fantastical Factory of Curious Craft is a new six-part series in which skilful competitors turn crafting on its head to create Prop-like, mic-drop craft of epic proportions.
Each episode sees innovative creatives from across the UK use their artistic talent to wow us with spectacular makes.
Filmed in a surreal factory set which has been taken over by craft, each episode features four fabulous crafters who must use their unique creative skill set, to stick, sew, hammer and craft their creations in to life.
Over two fantastical rounds, comedian and master crafter Keith and co-host Anna Richardson will help the grafting crafters navigate through the tasks as they construct their spectacular creations.
In the first round the crafters will create a bespoke item in response to a fantastical brief from factory owner Keith. Quality control craft experts, Harriet Vine MBE and Zak Khchai, will deliberate and help Keith choose the three most impressive makes with the worst one being dramatically 'recycled'.
The remaining crafters will advance to round two, where a celebrity guest will commission them to make the most fantastical creation of their lives before deciding which of our crafters will be declared the winner of the show.
