Art Themed Community Engagement Event
Looking for a unique interactive activity for your next community engagement event?
Consider offering your attendees a crafting activity of making wearable art - a headpeice.
Engaging in crafting activities is a relaxing and calming activity. So it is a means for you to provide a self care activity that is also fun and family friendly.
And if you have a photo booth at your event, the images of the attendees wearing their headpeices will be an eye-catching branding opportunity for your company on social media.
Creative Workshop for Team Building and Parties
Boost Morale, Promote Wellness
At first glance a headdress may seem like a mindless arts and crafts activity. But look closer:
.Making things by hand is form of self care. There is scientific proof of the therapeutic of making something by hand which described here on CNN.
.Separating teams from their normal work environment can help them view common work situations differently and more creatively.
.Unlike cooking/cocktail making team building activities, the participants will leave with a tangible reminder of this experience that will last long after the activity is over.
WHAT MAKES US APPEALING?
Participants will leave your event wearing a tangible product they made themselves.
The headpeice will have a keepsake for them remember your event for years to come, because the headdress are made with faux, not fresh flowers.
This is an inclusive activity as all ages, genders, body shapes and hair textures look good wearing a headdress.
Each person gets to make their own design, so that makes this a group activity that is also highly individualized.
We are the ONLY company in the Bay Area offering flower crown headpieces using eco-friendly materials, many of which are sourced from reuse facilities.
-This activity can be tailored by us to include a diversity training component. There is an opportunity to learn about the attitude team members have about doing something new, the style of headdress they make, and the colors and textures they choose to make the headdress.
-A headdress is a fashion accessory that is inclusive - all ages, genders, body sizes and hair textures can wear one.
-This is a group activity, yet highly individualized as each person gets to design the style of their choice.
-Making a headdress is non competitive activity and minimal skills are needed, just the ability to hold a glue gun.

.We can host 20 people in our venue which has:
-Private kitchen if you want to have this catered
-Photo studio for individual and group photos of people wearing their headdress
-Video Monitor in case you want to have a slide show
We have mobile version of our headdress class which can accommodate groups as small as 10 and as large as 150.
The venue must be indoors and in a public space such as business , community center, or school. Private homes don’t have the space for us to spread out or access to electricity we require.
Venue Requirements & More
The venue you provide ideally should be indoors so our crafting materials will be protected from the elements. But we have held classes under tents outside.
Each participant will need an electrical outlet to plug in their glue gun. So acess to elecricty must be at their workstations with a minimal of extension cords to minimize tripping.
In addition to tables for the participants to make their headdess, we need a minimum of 2 six foot long tables to display the crafting materials.
Number of Participants
The smallest group we had for a community engagement activity was 15 and the largest was 175.
For large groups the classes are offered in staggered shifts.
Typically we have 15 people at once making a headdress and while they are making their headdress the next group is selecting their materials.
It takes most people an average of 45 minutes to make the style of headdresses we have available at our mobile workshops.

"We hired Judi and her team to lead a headdress workshop for our Black Employee Network (BEN) Employee Resource Group in preparation for the 2023 Black Joy Parade.Our team had a blast nurturing their creativity and having fun, all while spending quality time with teammates.
Our teammates had a chance to wear their headdresses during the parade. Judi and her team were engaging and warm. They made us feel at home at their studio and were great hosts. They have a great variety of colors and materials to create a unique piece. I recommend hiring Judi for your next team-building exercise."
