Dom welcomes woodturner Shannon from Northumberland and upcycler Ryan from south Wales into his Maker's Marquee.

Recently diagnosed with autism and dyslexia, Shannon has only ever given the hand-turned bowls she makes on her incredible foot-powered pole lathe as gifts. Dom and mentor Alice love her work and the way she produces it, and want to convince Shannon that she and the bowls she creates are much more marketable than she thinks. Alice sets Shannon a challenge to make her bowls recognisably hers, but does she believe that what she does has real value?

Successful musician Ryan wants to quit touring to spend more time at home with his young family and hopes an upcycling business will make that possible. Mentor Zoe can see that his work is high quality, but she is worried that his style doesn't stand out from the crowd. Ryan also produces unique digital art, so can Zoe convince him to be bold and use it on his upcycled furniture?
