Team Building Workshops For Corporations

Art engages at all levels. Working with the hands often relaxes oneself and enhances one’s sense of well-being.

Clay is a medium that offer the opportunity to learn, express and reflect.

At Goodman Ceramic Studio, we offer 2 levels of team building workshops.

1) Fun with Ceramics! (Fun-oriented Pottery Workshop) 2.5 hours

These sessions are normally between 2.5 – 3hours and are held in the pottery studio or at your office premises. Participants can choose from a wide range of projects. See a video clip here.

Through the creation process, participants often reveal a surprising side of themselves, be it their creative or comical selves. The facilitator may offer a short art appreciation session through an informal discussion of selected works. Option for artist’s demonstration on the electric throwing wheel is also available.

2) Teambuilding Challenge 1 & 2 Workshops (3.5 – 4.5 hours)

These are longer sessions that are generally in 2 parts. The first half of the session involves the learning of basic hand-building skills such as making a open vessel and sculpting. After a short break, participants work in groups to use clay to explore themes such as social responsibility, values and even elements of a good strategy.

Task with a group project, members are given a certain time-frame to complete and present their creations. Pitching to win the game, members develop better collaborative and co-operative skills.

Clay is not only fun to work with, but a pliable medium that can be used to express meanings.
