corporate workshops

As more and more companies have moved toward a remote work situation, there is a rising need for digital ways of team-building and networking in place of traditional methods of in-person gathering. We have had great success working with companies including Scribd, Salesforce, Kimball, and others in partnering on digital corporate events centered around a creative element. 

This is a current selection of classes offered for digital workshops available to groups of 12 or more. All classes will have materials kits mailed 7 days in advance of the workshop date, upon receipt of full payment and a list of participants. Kits can be sent anywhere in the United States, or internationally with an international shipping fee calculated by destination. Each workshop is subject to a $100 teaching fee in addition to materials kits cost per student.
