Roy Evans Biography – Roy Evans Wiki
Roy Evans is a British coppersmith creating unique sculptures for homes and gardens. He is featured on the second series of BBC One Make it at Market.
His journey on the show began during his time in the army, where he developed a passion for metalwork. But the coppersmith’s career took a different path when he started working in IT while continuing his work with copper as a hobby.
He finally decided to give up computers in 2023 summer when he turned this hobby into a full-time business, creating exclusive handmade gifts for the home or garden under the Metalicart name.
This led him to take the plunge and apply for Make It at Market and soon found himself filming at Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire.
He added: “Everyone said ‘you should go for it’, and I was one of 30 people selected out of more than 930.
“I had my hopes up and the rest is history… I was nervous when I first got there but you forget the cameras are there.
“It was all very professional and comfortable, and the film crew were fantastic, they made it so comfortable and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
