From one-hour creative workouts to full day experiences, our artist-led workshops for business encourage employee wellbeing and mental health, as well as boosting team morale and innovation. If you’re looking for convenience we offer online experiences or can bring the workshop to you, or if you want to get out of the office we can help you source a suitable location.
Our approach to art is fun, relaxed and will be sure to get creative juices flowing. There’s no pressure to create something that looks good, we just want you to enjoy the process.
Drop In & Draw
This 1 hour workshop uses short, simple exercises to take the fear away from having to create something that looks ‘good’. It's a relaxing, mindful experience, suitable for any ability. The workshops are ideal for virtual events and can be delivered over Zoom using just the equipment you have to hand - a pencil, biro and office paper is fine! They can also be delivered in person, and as a series of regular sessions.
Meet The Team
During this 2 hour workshop you will work together to create fun, eye catching portraits of your team members. You will use a mixture of materials including paint, collage, pencils, charcoal and printing inks and swap canvases throughout the process to create collaborative mixed media portraits. Perhaps you could even use them to add some fun to your website or office walls!

5 benefits of doing art
and why you should be making it a habit
The increase of dopamine caused by making art creates neurons which promote focus and learning. By creating art, you strengthen the connectiivity between the brain's left and right hemispheres, boosting psychological resilience and productivity.
There is no right or wrong way to do art. When we create, we have permission to take a risk, try new things, and strip away inhibitions in a healthy way
Art encourages us to be 'in the moment' and distracts us from all the other noise inside our brains. Studies demonstrate that cortisone levels in the brain are significantly reduced following participation in creative activity.
Improve Problem Solving Skills
Art improves our ability to 'think outside the box' whether tackling a blank canvas or experimenting with materials and techniques we learn that there are many different ways to build solutions.
When we make art we are forced to slow down and focus on our activity. This creates space in our minds for new ideas and 'aha' moments.
