Let us craft the perfect offering for your corporate events, birthday parties, bridal shower, bachelorette party, ladies night, holiday parties, simple outing with colleagues, team building, and much more.
Our services include 2- 3 hour structured workshops. All materials, supplies, set up, and clean up are included. Each instructor will engage in attendees to make sure everyone is having a good time and feels accomplished!
How It Works
Create at the Crafted Outpost, in the Courtyard, or we can bring the workshops to you! We have a menu of classes you can choose from -- and we’ll work with you to make sure that the craft class you get fits exactly what you need. You have the option to begin the workshops with a yoga practice or meditation led by certified instructors to get those creative juices flowing and press the “reset” button to tackle the craft at hand.
We craft an event or event series that teaches attendees new skills and addresses your own needs, whether it’s team building or stress-relief for your employees or appreciation for your clients.
All materials and supplies are included as well as set-up and clean-up. We ensure that every participant has a good time, feels accomplished, and bonds with their peers.
Why It Works
Crafting is an activity that puts you into a meditative state or “flow”, feeling like nothing else seems to matter. And flow relieves stress and makes us happy!
In an age where we’re all on screens all the time, a “hands-on, screens off” break is an unusual treat. It’s a chance to get your employees or friends to slow down, relax, and to try something new. And: To bond.
Types of Workshops
Workshops are two to three hour creative experiences for everybody. Learn skills, make friends, be creative and take home a handmade project to be proud of.
