Makendoo run painting and making workshops for children all over the UK and beyond, adding colour, creativity and an instant carnival atmosphere to any event turning it into a visual spectacular.
Children (and adults) of all ages can join in the fun, painting and making hats, masks and banners which can be finished off with feathers, glitter and ribbons. Children leave the workshop carrying, wearing and waving their artworks, lasting souvenirs of a great day out.

Makendoo have developed their unique style of interactive entertainment over many years to deal smoothly and efficiently with large numbers at busy events. Perfect for festivals, fun days, corporate events, family days, parades and shopping centres, the workshops operate on a 'drop-in' system, with up to 200 kids coming and going throughout the day, (no booking required) each one making something to take home.

Makendoo arrive at events fully equipped, bringing tables, child friendly materials and washable paint. Our workshops are self contained, well controlled and leave no mess. All we need you to provide is the space. A standard day consists of 2x2 hour workshops.

Makendoo have been running workshops for over 12 years, and have travelled as far as the Arab Emirates and Singapore. We have a wide range of themes and are happy to tailor workshops to suit specific promotions.

Popular themes include: Pirates, Jungle, Space, Underwater, Fiesta, Wild West, Circus, Carnival, On Safari, Around the World, Land of the Pharaohs, Bugs World, Easter, Halloween, Christmas, Wizard Magic, Knights and Damsels and Medieval Pageants.

Regular bookings include: Cambridge Folk Festival, Jersey Arts Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Trafford Centre Manchester, Centre Court Wimbledon, Honda Christmas Party, Merseyway Easter Week Stockport Microsoft Christmas party.

‘Fantastic! Unforgettable! Now one of the family, Makendoo provide lots of colour and lots of laughter as a regular feature of our summer programme. Not to be missed!’
