‘Timeless Tales Through Wall-Painting’ Workshop

Ever felt the urge to step back in time and immerse yourself in a living, breathing artwork?
Now is your chance!
Join us in a workshop where creativity meets history, merging into a vibrant canvas inspired by the timeless allure of ancient wall paintings and hieroglyphics.
You don’t need to be an artist; simply come with an open mind to become a vital part of this vibrant community mural.
This canvas articulates the language of our era, weaving together personal tales and societal reflections.
Bring your ideas, and partake in the creation of a mural that invites interpretation and discussion.
Together, we will craft a narrative offering a profound glimpse into our time, recreating the magic of ancient murals.
This is a space for pure, uninhibited artistic adventure, one stroke at a time!

Naomi Mitsuko Makkelie (1992) initiated this global project with the aim to document contemporary society through a series of murals.
These artworks serve as historical archives and social experiments, addressing pressing issues like individualism and societal pressures, while critiquing the current state of the art world.
She collaborates with her mother, Ellen Makkelie (1965), a fellow Treehouse Resident, to bring this workshop to life.

11 November, 11.00 – 16.30 (Including Lunch) By Naomi Mitsuko Makkelie ( and Ellen Makkelie (
