Event Overview

Spending time in nature is proven to reduce stress, enhance our wellbeing and strengthen our relationships with others. Bring the essence of nature into your workplace with this unique, hands-on experience, where teams put their minds and creativity together to create stunning living art pieces.

Before rolling up your sleeves, you and your team will engage in themed challenges, competing to earn the materials and equipment needed to create your living art. Through these activities, you’ll learn the essential techniques for creating fully functional living art and the importance of sustainability practices in preserving our environment.

Get your hands dirty and unleash your creativity as you create a unique piece of art, using natural materials like plants, moss and driftwood, either in a living frame or an adorable planter. Wherever possible, we’ll upcycle old and discarded items—who knew an old shoe could become a charming, vintage planter? At the end, take your unique piece of living art with you to display at home or in your office!

The Living Art Sustainability Workshop is a hands-on green team building event where employees collaborate in teams to create decorative pieces from natural materials such as plants, moss and driftwood. Participants will learn about sustainable practices and upcycling techniques while engaging in fun team building challenges.

In the context of our sustainability workshop, living art is an artistic creation that incorporates in its design living organisms like plants and moss, as well as decorative elements like driftwood and shells. Examples include living frames, where the materials are arranged within a picture frame, creating a beautiful natural 3D wall art. Another example is upcycling old items such as shoes into unique planters.

The Living Art Sustainability Workshop offers teams a unique opportunity to engage in a hands-on, green activity while fostering teamwork and a more positive workplace. Participants not only gain practical skills in making beautiful art from natural materials but also develop a deeper understanding of upcycling, ecosystems and sustainability.
