Experiential Creative Workshop

Are you seeking activity to engage in with your team? An alternative to the usual bowling, sociable drink, building a raft, climbing a mountain, an escape room, or being trapped in a hotel room being asked to come up with new ideas! 

Something fun, creative, memorable, learning new skills, in a calming and beautiful space?

We have the perfect experience for you…..we run experiential upholstery workshops. Together, your employees will work side by side to make their own unique and eco-friendly vision / notice boards. An opportunity for them to experience:

  • Creative expression: Upholstery is a craft that allows them to explore their creative side and foster innovation. Through fabric choices, and decorative details like buttoning. They can infuse their own unique style and personality into the upholstery project, turning it into a creative expression of themselves.
  • Confidence and empowerment: Participants will gain a sense of empowerment and belief in their own unique creative potential.
  • Re-energised: By engaging their mind and body in a creative activity they are able to clear the mental clutter and re-engage their imagination returning to work and daily life re-energised and more productive.
  • Connection and communication: they will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for self-discovery and creativity.

These workshops are perfect for reward and recognition activity, team bonding or a creative activity that can be incorporated into time away from the office work to plan strategy or a business challenge. No experience is needed – complete novices are welcome.

It truly is a ‘feel good day’ where attendees will leave re-energised, feeling proud with a huge sense of achievement.
