Comedy art and craft show for 6-12 years olds Makeaway Takeaway will be back on CiTV this Autumn with its hotly anticipated second series.
Presented by comedian Bec Hill, bursting with unique makes, top tips and inspirational art ideas, she experiments with recycled materials and uses her hilarious funny bones to make us laugh every step of the way.
Coined ‘the Deliveroo of the art world’, Makeaway Takeaway will see Bec fulfill the wishes of her young customers by dropping art off right at their door. Through her Bubble Station, Bec receives a call from a customer asking for help to solve a dilemma and whether it’s coming up with a creative solution for getting to sleep at night, or what to do for a family of chatterboxes, Bec whizzes to their aid and together they make an awesome piece of art.
Back at the takeaway Bec rustles up a Make of the Day for a child who presents her with three mystery ingredients, and through her banana phone, a customer requests a huge arty surprise for someone special in their life. Peppered through each show we also experience takeaway techniques, paper puppetry and mini makes. Each episode is packed with a cornucopia of ingenious ideas for audiences to try at home.
In this brand-new series Bec creates the perfect advert, uses optical illusions to make 2D art, makes a Pizza Piñata and some Forever Flowers with just three ingredients, helps a customer save some holiday money and another to sleep better at night, visits Chessington World of Adventures, Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace Forest and The National Space Center, plus much (MUCH!) more
Jo Killingley creator and Executive Producer says “Creativity and humour are so important in children’s lives and Makeaway Takeaway combines them both. Bec Hill is a comedy genius who makes us belly laugh throughout the whole production.
The series is a delight to work on and the team love the challenge of digging through their recycling to see what quirky things we can make. Who thought some recycled pots and cardboard could be transformed into a ‘Dog Bum Organiser’ for all your pets needs!”
