Rachel Henderson Money for Nothing
Rachel Henderson is a regular artisan on the popular BBC One series ‘Money for Nothing’, presented by Jay Blades. She joined the BBC show after a producer of the show got in touch to ask Rachel if she fancied doing a screen test. She told The Herald: “She had seen some of my upcycled designs, said they loved my work and asked me to join their team of artisans.
“That has been good fun because I’ve had some amazing and challenging projects. I have been given a variety of stuff to work on. For one episode, I was given a box of old clothing which I ended up making into a rug. That was a great project. I have worked with fabric before, but this was something new.
“For another episode, I was given an old trunk that had belonged to someone in the army. It was battered and bruised. I ended up turning that into a colourful display cabinet for drinks. Everything I have been given for the show has been very different but that is what I like about it.
“I love the challenge of thinking out of the box about a project, trying to reinvent something and set it off on its new journey. That is what I love about upcycling in general. Also, you are saving it from the tip which is always a good thing for the environment.”
