Studio MAKY volunteering at the Pauluskerk, Rotterdam

Category : newsNo Comments 路 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.

On October 15, our post pigeon was settled at Graffic Matters in Breda.

This festival is held every 2 years and during a monthly program where all their projects took place in or around the former Breda’s Museum, you could check out their exhibitions which researched the bounderies of graffic design. This years theme was: Shut Up, Speak Up.

Our Post pigeon project about awareness of freedom fitted very well in this interactive day with a lot of different kind of (graffic) activities.

Fluffy the Puffy for Villa Zebra Pop-Up

Category : newsNo Comments 路 by Oct 17th, 2017

Villa Zebra organized during the autumn holiday a temporarily Pop-Up in Overschie. The theme of the workshops was the fantastic Shiver/Scary/Creepy.

Studio MAKY was asked to give a Fluffy the Puffy workshop, inspired by our fluffy Giant Spidey. It was a day full of colorful, long haired scary and hideous monsters dangling on a single string to scared big people around the corner :). The kids created a wonderful world with colored scary spiders, baby monsters, vampire hamsters and many more!
