The first episode introduces us to Cath, a resident of Cheshire, and Morgan, hailing from Oxfordshire.
The pair have their sights set on transforming their artistic talents into profitable enterprises as they enter the marquee. Cath, who works as a cleaner, aspires to trade her day job for a willow weaving business, seeking guidance from Dom and his expert team.
However, mentor Eddie expresses concerns about Cath’s life-sized fantastical beasts and fairies, questioning their marketability, and encourages her to reconsider her business approach.
Meanwhile, furniture maker Morgan’s journey revolves around bolstering his self-confidence in his craft, with mentor Alice working to instill belief in both his skills and creations. With eight weeks at their disposal to implement their mentors’ advice, the question remains: can they generate sufficient income to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams?
