At Richmond Art School we offer a range of creative workshops to organisations who would like to offer their staff an inspiring and creative day away from the office. Taking place in state of the art facilities, the workshops will challenge and motivate staff outside their normal working environment to learn new skills, have fun and work together with colleagues in a fresh and innovative way.
Taught by professional artists and makers, you can choose from a variety of creative courses to develop a bespoke day depending on what your organisation is looking for.
There is also the option for you to hire our contemporary theatre and conference facilities to hold a corporate event, product launch, or training day as part of a creative staff development package, combining a business event with enjoyable and rewarding creative workshops.
