The things that children make

Sarah Mangle, the host of “These Things That People Make”, interviews twelve adults about the crafts they made when they were children on January 20th, 2011.

I love this show and want to share it with you.

Drawings, popsicle stick houses, and edible finger paintings are just a few of the examples folks share in these interviews. Listen to the stories and the warm feelings evoked by remembering the joys of childhood crafting. It made me think of the times when I doodled in class.

When I was eight years old, I couldn’t see the tops of some trees. Therefore, I didn’t draw them until my teacher pointed that out. Then, I started to look at the tops, the roots, and the bark of the trees. I drew lots of trees, rocks, water, and sky when I felt bored in class or just wanted something to do with my hands while listening to the teacher.

What was your favourite craft?

What do your children enjoy creating?

“These Things That People Make” is an interview based radio show about crafts, zines, graphic novels, illustrated books, and other projects that are not considered fine art. Sarah Mangle is the Community Outreach Coordinator at CFRU 93.3 FM in Guelph.
