We organise fun and engaging
online creative activities for businesses
Looking for new ideas for virtual team bonding, away days, office parties or to break the monotony of working from home?
We can help!
We know that ensuring team well-being and engagement can be challenging (especially at the moment).
We also know that trying new things slightly outside of people's comfort zones can encourage them to come together in new ways.
This is why we have carefully curated a range of fun, creative workshops (that are kind to the environment) and selected experienced, inspirational artists who will help your teams to connect and better understand each other's strengths, weaknesses, and interests.
Get to know your team through pottery, making a hanging kokedama or cooking
Your team will make a hanging kokedama (otherwise known as a Japanese moss ball) - the ultimate small space garden.
Led by our fun and lively award winning eco interior designer who might also engage in a bit of team 'plant shaming!'
Have your team prepare a delicious Jamaican feast (and maybe some rum punch too) with our fun loving chef.
This is a chance to learn how to cook Caribbean style and pick up some top tips from Chris 'The Spice Guy'.
We booked an online kokedama class for our company Christmas party in December 2020. It was really well managed and everyone really enjoyed the class and loved their final results! The attention to detail and logistics were great. Creative Happenings were also very accommodating with the fact that our employees are all over the country and the entire process was seamless - we will definitely be back for more fun online socials!

Help your teams to 'incubate' their ideas
According to the Digital Marketing Institute, developing creative skills can lead to the creation of new products, services and also the optimisation of business processes.
However creative thinking doesn't happen by accident and it certainly doesn't occur in a vacuum. It needs to be refined and honed and practiced in five key stages.
Incubation of ideas is the all important second stage when you need to let ideas percolate in your mind. Experts recommend that you do something else whilst you incubate i.e. walk, have a bath, day dream in fact do something completely different to your usual routine.
