THE REPAIR SHOP’S LUCIA SCALISI VISITS DENSTONE HALL FARM SHOP

Painting Conservator and restorer, Lucia Scalisi, from beloved BBC Series The Repair Shop will be visiting Denstone Hall Farm Shop on the 8th June, and signing copies of the latest Repair Shop book. The event will run from 11am to 12pm.

 

Lucia said: “I’m thrilled to be invited by my sister and the team at Denstone Farm Shop to visit. There is such a wonderful response to The Repair Shop and this book gives a special insight into some of the expert’s inspirations and favourite items. I hope to see fans on the 8th.”

 

The Repair Shop: Crafts in the Barn is a beautifully designed and photographed book which captures the true magic and irresistible feelgood nature of one of the country’s best loved shows.

 

Each chapter focuses on a different expert, including art restorer Lucia Scalisi, with each person explaining their craft, their love for it and the restoration process on their favourite items, including Lucia’s work on pieces, such as fascinating three-dimensional portrait with an equally absorbing history, a portrait that belonged to French artist Helene de Beauvoir, sister to the famous philosopher Simone, and a skillful collaboration on a Suffragette desk.

 

Complete with heart-warming stories, the book includes the expert’s thoughts of some unique restorations that have featured on the programme.

 

Denstone Farm Shop’s Rupert Evans said: “We are huge fans of The Repair Shop and Lucia often has some of the most fascinating items on the show. To have her at the Farm Shop to share some of her stories and sign books will be very special.”
