Jodie Marsh-Hoffman teaches children to make artwork from outdated milk cartons and cardboard packing containers amongst different home goods
“When I used to be a toddler I used to watch the present Art Attack on a regular basis,” she says from the UK. “I loved making things from the show, but also just watching how things were made. I found it so peaceful to watch. I remember making a backpack from a cereal box. Which was great to play with afterwards, pretending I was on an adventure with my recycled backpack.”
Jodie, began her personal YouTube channel alongside the traces of Art Attack. In the channel, she teaches children how to convert trash into artwork. “My channel has reached out to roughly 850+ parents/children during the lockdown.”
Jodie, an expert theatre artist, had been fascinated with recycled artwork since a go to to South Africa as a toddler. Occasionally, she makes props for her play from these recyclable supplies. “I love making props from junk. I have made many junk props for storytelling pieces. It is a brilliant, low cost way to bring stories to life.”
“The junk items that are used and discarded the most include toilet rolls, cereal boxes, plastic bottles, plastic milk containers and old socks/fabric. All of these are amazing for arts and crafts. There is so much to make out of these reusable items.”
Jodie goes to host a reside artwork and craft session each Saturday from August 15 to September 12 at 3.30 pm. You can register for it here.
