Two Yorkshire men are about to put their handcrafting skills to the test by attending More4’s new design show.
Dom and Michael will be participating in The Great Big Tiny Design Challenge presented by Sandi Toksvig.
The eight-part series sees 10 hobby craftsmen from across Britain compete to create tiny furniture for dolls houses, with interior design guru Laura Jackson judging alongside miniature sculptor Willard Wigan MBE.

Among the 10 participants on the show are Dom, 30, and Michael, 27, from Yorkshire.
Dom studied product design and now works in mechanical engineering. His education and profession allow him to produce miniatures of a high level of detail and quality.
His favorite thing about crafting is the community, he loves sharing tips and tricks online with people who have the same passion for miniatures as he does.
Ahead of the show, he revealed, “It’s not uncommon for my girlfriend to walk into my craft room and be assaulted by the music of a medieval tavern or Viking chants.”
On the other hand, Michael had been crazy about miniatures for as long as he could remember. After realizing he could make his own sculptures instead of buying them, his miniature world grew and he started his own business.
A dance graduate, Michael is a performer and loves theater while possessing a flair for small details. He likes the small world community and meeting other enthusiasts.
Speaking about his love of craftsmanship, he said, “It’s nice to see other people’s reactions to such small things. There is real magic in anything mini.”
