If you want to add colour and creativity to your centre, increase footfall and turn shopping trips into an adventure, then book a Makendoo workshop today.

have been running workshops in Shopping Centres for over 12 years. We offer not only a rewarding and enjoyable experience for those who take part but also a visual spectacular guaranteed to enhance any busy centre. Children of all ages can join in the fun making colourful masks, hats and banners which create an instant carnival atmosphere. Children leave the workshop carrying, wearing or waving their artworks, lasting souvenirs of a great day out. Adults are always thrilled to find such high quality, free entertainment and often join in. Makendoo workshops provide the finishing touch to any family shopping trip, ensuring that the children have as much fun as the adults and look forward to a return visit.

We arrive fully equipped to run the workshop and use only child friendly materials and washable paint. All we need you to provide is space. 4x4m is ideal, but we are very flexible.

Our normal day consists of 2x2 hr workshops, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Suggested times 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm are when we find most kids are around, but we are happy to suit your timetable.

We can deal with up to 200 kids per day working with about 15 at a time. The workshops operate on a ‘rolling system’, no booking required.
