Will Kirk

Will is best known for his appearances on BBC’s The Repair Shop where he has been part of the expert team of craftsmen since the show first aired in 2017. He has also appeared on BBC’s Morning Live, a live daytime show providing us with top tips and expert advice on how to care for furniture and trinkets already in our homes.

Will’s passion and interest in furniture started in his childhood where he spent many hours watching his grandfather, a carpenter, working in his workshop. He went on to study BA Graphic Design at the University of the Arts, followed by graduating with a BA in Antique Furniture Restoration and Conservation at London Metropolitan University (formally known as London School of Furniture) where he honed his skills and gained a deeper knowledge of furniture restoration and conservation. He set up his own London based workshop in 2012 and has since worked on a variety of commissions from much-loved family heirlooms, to larger corporate contracts.
