Team building with clay

Clay experiences is team building with clay,
Concrete stories to be built together

Manuela Metra Atelier organizes custom-made teambuilding sessions using clay. These experiential and practical workshops for companies and organizations can take place in the bright Manuela Metra Atelier in Milan. Our “Trotter Potter” service can offer the Atelier experience anywhere if you are unable to visit us at the Atelier … and it’s not chaotic as you might think.

Many skills are stimulated by this activity:

Experience and collaboration Participants work together to produce a work in clay. Everyone works for a common purpose; everyone contributes with their own hands to reach the result.

Clay and creative thinking There is no mistake, right or wrong in the artistic process. Participants are encouraged to handle the unexpected by thinking in a new way and to see the positive implications. The skills of three-dimensional construction and the skills of the hands give a broader thinking and learning. The clay helps to explore this new dimension.

Concrete respect The workshops are structured to foster mutual respect for ideas and work. New capacities are discovered and new way of thinking are revealed. the participants see their colleagues in a new light and appreciate hidden talents, create positive relationships that benefit them in the workplace.

Tale and communication The collaborative nature of the workshop implies that participants constantly dialogue with each other, telling experiences and exchanging ideas. At some points in the session, participants are encouraged to present their ideas to the rest of the group. This helps develop communication skills in public, as well as the ability to give and receive feedback in a creative, new context.

Together to belong to a team The works produced by the group promote a sense of pride and belonging. Once the session is over, the result is fired, glazed and returned. If it is installed in a common area, such as a meeting room, the work becomes a concrete instance of what can be achieved with good teamwork and something to be proud of.
