Learn a New Skill, Share Stories, and Make Art Together!
During this team building workshop, your group will learn the basics of wood marquetry, a centuries-old fine woodworking technique where wood veneers are used to create pictures. Woodcut Maps's dynamic hands-on studio approach makes every single person in the group feel like an accomplished designer and craftsperson. Under our instruction, the process itself is quite relaxing - many people tell us how meditative and surprisingly approachable the activity is! We love watching everyone share personal stories with each other about the locations of their maps and then beam with pride upon their final reveals. Much like how a map represents both the place and the memories, this creative team building workshop offers the best of both worlds: social experience and physical product.
We Can Host You in The Mission or We Can Come To You!
Woodcut Maps has a small garden studio in San Francisco's sunny Mission District that can accommodate groups of 6-10. Larger groups can take advantage of our mobile onsite option where we come to your office (anywhere in the Bay Area) or an offsite event venue you've booked (we recommend Breather). We'll arrive 30 minutes before your workshop's start time with all the materials and tools - all you need to provide is the people and some tables and chairs (such as in a lunch room or conference room). Oh and snacks. We've noticed that teams really like snacks. And, yes, it's totally fine to drink alcohol while Woodcut Mapping. :)
What You'll Pay & What You'll Get.
We can accommodate group sizes of 6-40. The cost is $85 per person. Each attendee designs, makes, and leaves with their own custom 6x6 inch wood-inlay map of any place on earth. In advance of the workshop, participants submit their Location Selections via your group's form (sent after booking confirmation). Day-of, we will bring along a few basic San Francisco designs for any unexpected participants. Workshops last about 90 minutes (we need 30 minutes prior for setup and 10 minutes after for cleanup). The cost of the workshop includes all professional design fees, materials, instruction, and cleanup.
