Grayson Perry’s Dream House

Our latest documentary collaboration with Grayson Perry transmits this Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.

The documentary charts the creation of Grayson’s riskiest and most personal public artwork of his career: a loving tribute and celebration of his homeland of Essex inspired by his life and the people he grew up amongst. This is his tribute to Essex Women in all their glory and a powerful challenge to the reductive myth of the ‘Essex Girl.’

It is also Grayson’s biggest project to date, a creative collaboration with Charles Holland of FAT Architecture, that also involves a team of engineers, builders and crafts people. It’s taken three years to build and has involved hundreds of man-hours.

Many thanks to Living Architecture ( and FAT Architecture for their help with the programme.
