Best of all, you get to leave with finished stylish creations! Here are our top picks for activities to plan at your team building event. Want to bring us to the event? Contact us here for easy pricing and scheduling.
1. Glass Etching
Glass etching can be customized in so many different ways, so all of your colleagues can make their own designs. Best of all, you can glass etch pint glasses like these. But you can also use martini glasses, champagne flutes or even glass candle holders. If it’s glass, the sky is the limit!
2. Customized Soaps
Soap making is so much fun because it’s an item that everyone uses daily. In this workshop, we use essential oils to scent the soap like citrus, pine, jasmine, and lavender. You can choose your own scents to customize your own blend! You can add healthy ingredients like salt, oats, or even coffee. Be sure to note: this workshop needs a microwave and soap needs 30 minutes to set in their molds before they can be removed.
This is our most popular workshop because it’s perfect for offices, desks, and makes a great gift too. Succulents and cacti are easy to care for and lovely to keep. You can make lots of differently styled terrariums with colored rocks, colored moss, and cool add ons like fairy garden miniatures, seashells, or gemstones.
4. Sugar Scrubs & Beard Oils
Sugar scrubs and beard oils are the best of both worlds. Use white sugar, brown sugar or even salt to make gentle and exfoliating scrubs. Beard oils are made with nourishing oils like avocado and jojoba. Both of these can be scented with the essential oils of your choice!
5. Wood Burned Coasters, Wall Art, and More
You can make so many unique wood burned projects. You can make wood coasters, ornaments, decor and art, or keepsake boxes. Use stencils to make designs then burn the wood to allow it to transform before your eyes!

Candle making is another popular workshop because the results are impossible to resist. Candles are beginner friendly and are so popular for the home. Add your own essential oils to make them your style.
