Tool Club is a new DIY show for Channel 4

A new TV show for Channel 4 is looking for participants in Preston to help tackle their DIY challenges.


Tool Club will bring together experts to help the public take on challenging home projects, small repair jobs and upcycling.

Brits have spent billions on their homes and gardens since the start of the pandemic, but some homeowners have been left with botched jobs and long DIY jobs as they don’t have the skills to carry out the work.

Tool Club aims to upskill the nation in all things DIY, so that viewers really can learn to do it themselves.  

As well as visiting people’s houses to help with projects, there will also be the opportunity for people to bring items to a converted double-decker bus that serves as a mobile workshop.

The team of experts on hand at the Tool Bus include renowned up-cycler, Max McMurdo, expert carpenter, Julia Miller-Osborn, and excellent all-rounder, Jessica Grizzel.

The bus will act as a base for the team to demonstrate practical DIY skills, tips and hacks. 

The production team is looking for homeowners, with their own small budget for a project, who would like to benefit from expert help to carry out, correct, or complete the job.

Or people with items to bring to the Tool Bus, to be restored, repurposed, or reupholstered.

People are being asked to email with photos and some information on the project.
