Want to refresh your work group or get your team’s creative juices flowing? We can bring our famous creative reuse programming to you! Participants will work collaboratively to design and build a thematic art project using our fun, colorful, and unique materials. At the same time, they’ll enhance their collective creativity and problem solving skills.

Here are examples of programming we can provide:

New Company Banner
Participants design a team, department, or company banner using the unique supplies provided. Each banner element should communicate their purpose, values, audience, and work culture. Smaller groups collaborate on particular components, and then all pieces merge for the final product.

Service Project
Engage your colleagues to change the world through community service and civic engagement. We offer service projects as an auxiliary activity to the creative team building program. Your team can engage with one another as they support our organization’s mission. We are grateful for the support of many volunteers to process materials and organize our facility.

Make it your own
Let our staff can design a program specifically for the needs of your organization. An additional consulting fee may apply. Call us for more information and a quote.


$50.00 per person for a 2 hour program, 40 person maximum. Off-site programs more than 20 miles from our location may require additional fees for mileage, travel allowance, and/or accommodations.
