Team Building Workshops focus on collaboration, communication, taking risks and problem solving. Participants work individually, in pairs, small groups or together. The workshop starts with an overview and step-by-step instructions that guide participants to design and construct a meaningful, thematic artwork.

Projects are suitable for all levels, focus on hand building, and follow a methodical art making process developed by Spark Ceramics. No experience is necessary!

Brainstorming and visual communication are practiced and incorporate sketching and model-making as part of a problem solving process that precede a hands-on segment. As makers, we focus on fabricating, refining and reflection, taught as part of a larger vision that nurtures trust, self-awareness and confidence.

Projects that work well are as follows:

  • Large decorative table-top or vertical planters
  • Serving bowls or platters
  • Functional desk-ware such as pencil holders or paperclip containers.
  • Functional table-ware such as mugs, plates or salad bowls, shot glasses (tumblers)
  • Tile mosaic mural or wall art for the office or hallways
  • Large Vessel or Vase for flowers
