Corporate Handbuilding Event

District Clay Corporate Handbuilding Event!

During this hand-building event, each person will go on their own creative adventure.  They will start with slabs of leather hard clay and by the end of the session, they will each have designed, decorated and painted a shallow bowl. 

In the process, they will learn basic handbuilding including using a variety of clay tools for decorating and texturing.    Finally, they will paint their piece using colors of their choice. District Clay will bisque fire each piece, give them a final clear glaze and glaze fire it.  The final work will be ready for pick-up four to six weeks after the event.  

This event is guaranted to spur creative juicespresent interesting design choices and to teach basic clay building techniques all in a fun team setting.  

This event offers multiple teambuilding opportunities including making quick creative decisionsworking creatively within a group and gaining a deeper appreciationof each team member's unique creative approach.  

It comes with a specially designed TeamBuilding Discussion Guide that participants can use if they wish. 
Our Private Party Manager, Jon Kerr, will get back to you shortly.  A copy of this questionaire will be sent you.
