Happy Chinese New Year!!!! Because of the year of the dog, we were asked by the Rotterdam Chinese Festivals to do a live-painting session on a dog at the Bijenkorf and to promote the Chinese New Year.

10 huge dogs were given to different artists to paint their own dog and spread out in the city center. From Feb 19-26, 2018 these 10 dogs are exposed all together at the Timmerhuis in Rotterdam.

Our colorful dogs are for sale afterwards, so spread the word:) For more Info about the dogs, please contact us.

Last Wednesday we were standing with our drawings in the elderly house Humanitas Bergweg, Rotterdam Noord.

Instead of working together with the youth of Rotterdam, we decided to ask this year the elderly/ seniors of Rotterdam Noord to participate in our project.

Coming Thursday, February 15, from 14-16 pm we are standing again in Humanitas Bergweg with our free drawing competition of the Badkonijn.

Come by this afternoon to draw hoe you would like to see this year’s Badkonijn!

Studio MAKY volunteering at the Pauluskerk, Rotterdam

Category : news · No Comments · by Dec 27th, 2017

The Pauluskerk is a church which is best known for helping the people from the bottom of society, including drug addicts, homeless people and refugees.

Studio MAKY volunteered the past 3 years for the Pauluskerk by organizing and helping with the Naai-atelier (sewing studio). Together with an enthusiastic group of other volunteers and Studio Zi, our main goal was to produce new products from donated cloths. It was also possible for the visitors to learn sewing on the sewing machine and to learn how you could repair your clothes yourself.

As a Christmas present for the visitors of the Pauluskerk, we produced with donated fabrics 100 toiletry bags. The staff of the Pauluskerk filled these bags up with with some handy products, like shower gell, deodorant, socks etc.
