Sarah Peterson Biography – Sarah Peterson Wiki
Sarah Peterson is a professional furniture upcycler, restorer and upholsterer based just outside Perth, Scotland. She has a passion for retro and vintage furniture. She features regularly on the BBC’s ‘Money for Nothing’ TV show where she creates unique designs out of items that have been saved from landfill.
After leaving school Sarah trained as a glass maker then went on to gain a first honours degree in ceramics and glass design. She continued with her career as a glass designer and maker and was fortunate enough to travel far and wide hosting exhibitions of her work in Horrods of London, Bloomingdale’s, New York and Hankyu in Japan.
Her first ever upcycling project was a GPlan statement chair that her granny gave to her mum to nurse Sarah and her twin brother on when they were young. The chair being the age it was needed some TLC so Sarah set to work and was amazed at the transformation.
She opened her first shop, Sarah’s Attic, in 2014, a small rented space within another shop, perfect for a start up business but she soon outgrew this and had to look for bigger premises. In 2018 she moved into her very own shop that was big enough to accommodate a retail space and workshop.
In 2021 Sarah and her husband Alfred Iannetta opened Tayside Upcycling & Craft Centre, a not for profit Community Interest Company. The main aim of the business is to champion the environmental benefits of upcycling. Already affectionately nicknamed “The TUCC shop”, this unique Centre showcases the creations of over 30 local Upcyclers and Craftspeople who work with a diverse range of materials including metal, wood and various fabrics.
