Get creative with online arts and crafts classes

Have fun with your team virtually with our online classes.

A great way to bring a spark of inspiration to remote teams is by giving them the chance to make something creative together. Encouraging one another as they work through stimulating online drawing or craft classes is sure to give your staff a sense of achievement and solidarity. Your instructor will make everyone feel comfortable and at ease, even if it's a team member's first time trying a virtual class.

This DIY Turkish mosaic lamp class is a colorful project that anyone can master. You'll receive craft kits in the mail and on the day of your event, you'll pull out all the stops making a beautiful glass mosaic lamp. Talk about a bright idea!

If your group likes the idea of learning how to paint, an art class that combines watercolor and mindfulness is the perfect choice. This is a chill way to learn basic watercolor painting techniques while focusing on relaxing as you work.

Bond with your coworkers while taking a virtual cooking class.

For a captivating activity that provides a feast for all of the senses, enlist your remote teams in a hands-on virtual cooking lesson. 

We have a buffet of tantalizing workshops for you to try, ranging from classes on cocktails and appetizers to sushi making and macaron baking. A talented cooking teacher leads each virtual team-building class and will immerse your group in your recipe.

It doesn't get more social than creating your own charcuterie board as a team activity. You will put together all of your favorite elements – from cheeses, olives, fruits, and more – and show off your compositions to each other. The best part is enjoying your board while socializing online with your teammates.

Bring a little piece of nature indoors

Flowers and greenery have long been proven to have a positive effect on workers, improving focus and concentration. Channel some of that flower power and bring your staff closer together, by trying a botanical-themed workshop. An easy way to introduce more plants into your homes is by learning how to make a terrarium.

An online succulent terrarium class lets everyone customize a mini garden filled with plants, moss, and even some personalized decorations. These adorable glass containers will bring a smile to your team's faces and help them relax and unwind. A well-stocked DIY kit will arrive before the class, to ensure your team has everything to create their cute little succulent display.
