    remote is the new reality

    Considering we have the ability to do soooo many things on our screens nowadays, we dreamed up an innovative way of creating a sense of collaboration, community, entertainment, and education, all wrapped up in one delightful, smell-good experience.

    Whether you’re hosting a team building event in the workplace, throwing a delightfully dreamy gathering for the bride-to-be, in need of a fun birthday activity, or looking to gather friends and family to simply try something new, our virtual making events provide an unforgettable experience for everyone.

     

    how it works

    Once you provide the details about your interest via email or by filling out this form here, you get to connect with our class coordinator aka edu-tainer, who provides top-tier service. She will ask questions to get to know hosts and their group for a unique, tailored-to-YOU experience.

    Do you have a certain theme in mind for your event? Looking to throw some cocktail testing in the mix? Our in-house expert is ready to roll up her sleeves and put together a fun and personal virtual event that brings your group together in a really cool way - get a sneak peek of the scene here!

     

    all you need are diy kits

    DIY kits will be sent to each member of the group (whether they’re in remote settings or together in one location) so everyone has everything they need the day of the event, including the Zoom link that your personal host will use to virtually educate and entertain you.

    You’ll learn insider information in the making industry like buzzwords and fun facts, and be encouraged to interact with one another through video and virtual chat.

    This is a one-of-a-kind group activity that may even spark interest for those looking for a side hustle or hobby. At the end of each session, everyone gets to keep a beautifully handcrafted creation that smells AMAZING. 

     

    handcrafted benefits

    We place a lot of focus on the making experience since it is proven to be beneficial for a variety of reasons. Making with your hands is an act of wellness as it encourages mindfulness and meditation; it’s a way to slow things down in our super busy lives.

    An article in Psychology Today written by Susan Biali Haas M.D. states, “Working productively with our hands is profoundly pleasurable. There is something primal about this. We are made to be active and have actively used our hands as part of our daily survival for thousands of years. With the advent of so much technology, many of us move through our days with minimal physical effort. We push a button instead of scrubbing dishes or laundry. Overall, we get far less physical activity than would be optimal for our bodies and minds.”

    Since working remotely has become a major upward trend, companies have had to start rethinking the way they keep their employees connected and aligned. According to Forbes, 10 Workplace Trends To Watch For In 2021, online meetings, networking, and team building should be planned regularly while encouraging feedback from employees to keep them engaged.

    Consistent use of these activities can also contribute to retaining and attracting new talent. Employees want to feel connected to their place of work, even when working in a remote setting.

    Simple, regular acts of virtual connection like a virtual making event can help workers feel a sense of community within their workplace. 

    Why not try something that gives you and your team a chance to try something different, connect with a common goal, learn a new skill, and step away from pushing buttons for a bit? You never know where making can take you.
