Studio Kratje Beeld is a temporary design studio formed by 10 art school students from the illustration department at the AKV | St. Joost, Breda. As a studio they work on different projects within their field and a mural for the Blind Walls Gallery is one of those assignments. For most students it was their first time working on a wall of this size, a good preparation was key in their learning process.

Together with Stadsarchief Breda the students discovered more and more about the history of the small alleyway and pretty soon they read about the old technical school located at the end of the Doelsteeg. The school, established by L.F.W. van Cooth, has been teaching local youngsters about the crafts of carpentry, furniture making, forging and painting from 1886 until 1979 when the entire school was destroyed in a raging fire.

In the mural you can see the craftsman restoring the dragon from the legendary tale of ’Joris en de draak’ (Joris and the dragon), which is a reference to the Sint-Joris-guild (guild of the crossbow), which was located at the sight in 1644.
