Kirstie Allsopps Vintage Homes – Channel 4

This is an exciting time for Sagar and Campbell, well possible 2 minutes of exciting time, we are on Kirstie Allsopps, Vintage Homes show tonight, on Channel 4!!
Showing off our teaching skills making a Tiffany style Art Deco Fan Lady Lamp, with Iman, whose house is being treated to a vintage maker-over.
Art Deco Fan Lamps
This is another part of our work, and also our starting point as artists, we both trained as stained glass artists and for as long as I can now remember have taught stained glass and related glass techniques to Adults, Community groups and School Children.

So we were very excited to be invited onto Kirstie’s show, to demonstrate and help make a lovely glass fan lamp for the living room.
We run Stained glass weekends at our studio in Manchester, and are now running a new one day workshop making an Art Deco Fan Lamp, the course dates and booking info can all be found on our web site, follow links, and also look at our progress with the Chandelier of Lost Earrings while you are there.
This was our first experience of being filmed for TV, a fascinating process, with much preliminary planning and filming giving a few minutes of fabulous telly!  And with the filming being in the middle of summer in our studio with the window closed (too much noise from outside) and camera studio lights on, an incredibly hot experience. The Raise the Roof production team all the way through the process were great, supportive and much fun, and work incredibly hard, their day seemed too started at about 5am, and I personally had never seen my studio at 6.30am before!
We would definitely do it again. Unless of course I look like I’m having a Bad Hair day on the telly tonight!! After having hair cut before filming, I tied it up (the heat) and for continuity had to leave it up, how vain.
