Escape to the Chateau – Make Do & Mend

Over the years we’ve seen Dick and Angel Strawbridge slowly turning their dilapidated French Chateau into a place of beauty. Converting the musty old rooms into romantic getaways. Hosting weddings, birthdays and celebrations of life as part of their events business, and helping families to make life-long memories.

Now, they’re bringing their skills to you. Teaching their DIY tricks and tips as they help viewers tackle their own home renovation, décor and craft projects. You’ve seen what they can do, now it’s time to take the reigns and do it yourself with Escape to the Chateau – Make Do & Mend.

Thursdays 20:00 / Saturdays 16:30


The Home Channel sees the start of a brand new season of Afrimaxx this month. Pamela, Palesa and Shudufhadzo take us on a journey through the African continent, exploring the wealth of creativity in design, music, food, arts and lifestyle.

Beyond the beauty, Afrimaxx aims to get to the heart of the African design philosophy and find out what makes local creatives tick. From what inspires them, to the materials that are available and the traditional influences that are being brought into the modern age.

Afrimaxx feature designers, artists and creators who are pushing the boundaries and putting Africa on the international map. We explore the most current local art and design scene. From the globally recognised to the up-and-coming creatives who are shaping the industry, no stone is left unturned when it comes to showcasing the true spirit of African design.
