The winner of Channel 4's Handmade: Britain's Best Woodworker has been revealed.

Misti, a sculptor from Ludlow, was crowned Britain’s Best Woodworker by series judges Alex de Rijke and Helen Welch following six weeks of competition overseen by host Mel Giedroyc.

On winning, Misti said: "It feels amazing. I've always questioned how good I am at things, but I am the winner. It feels really really good.

"There's no doubt that I live my life differently and I did want other people to see that actually it’s ok, you can be whatever you want in this life and you can succeed at things in this life despite your differences. Everybody should just be them and do their thing and be happy."

In the final big build challenge of the series, Misti and her fellow finalists, Charlie and Radha, were asked to create a garden building at least two metres high, two metres wide and two metres deep. Misti made an intricate garden lounge built from cedar and raised off the ground with steps leading to cushioned seating and a roof of fabric shades.

Series judge Helen Welch, founder of the London School of Furniture Making, said of Misti: "She's been great from the beginning, watching her grow has been a pleasure."
