Love it or loathe it, PLASTIC is everywhere so, This Is Art Club! is dedicating an entire episode to the different ways it’s used and reused to make art.

In this episode, Art Club member Indira spends the day with special effects modelmaker Julian Checkley who uses special resins to make petrifying monsters.

And we meet a young painter from Galway who uses 'plastic’ paints and here in our art club studio we raid the recycling bin and explore different ways of upcycling plastic diverted from landfill into our own collaborative art installation.
