A Work of Art: Creative Team Building in Watford, Hertfordshire

With the high demand for creative team building days, CCC Events provide an excellent selection for our clients to choose from. We run the glamorous Fashion Works with teams designing fabulous outfits for the catwalk challenge, many different cooking workshops and our increasingly popular Work of Art paint'athon! Creative Team Building at it's best

Last week we held a team building event in Watford for one of our client's annual conferences. Our painting workshops are a really good way to encourage a whole department to get creative, communicate effectively and work together to produce a giant masterpiece. Just how big the final painting is depends on the size of your group, your programme and where you might like it displayed.

This group was split into 8 teams in the morning and 8 in the afternoon, and provided with quality art supplies, aprons, brushes and acrylic paints, as well as a set of large stretched canvasses that later form some of the crucial pieces of the masterpiece puzzle. They did some really fun and colourful ice breaker activities to get their creative juices flowing, which lead flowingly into the main challenge.

Some of our clients have requested bespoke artwork to be designed to communicate a message or brand, but for this specific client it was the size that mattered. The bigger the better! Both the morning and afternoon teams worked really hard to get the 70 canvasses matched up with the correct shades of colour and adjoining lines, and just look at their achievements below...

The CCC team have a hard task of marking, as each team has achieved such high standards!

A Bite-size Taste of Camden Lock!

The World has taken one giant size culinary leap in my lifetime, from Cooking with Mother jam tarts to Delia's baking, through watching in amazement at Keith Floyd's wine fuelled outdoor cooking adventures (Shhhhh, nobody mention the Puffin), to the gigantic platter of celebrity chefs that delight us with mouth watering recipes from around the globe today! And I LOVE food. I love cooking, and I love eating! Cooking events are becoming more and more popular as the hype of new foods take off, baking programmes become more competitive - even grown men cry on The Great British Bake Off, and new global cooking techniques emerge.

A delicious selection of the team's affortsCCC Events also run really experimental Canape Creations events, which not only teach guests how to make some easy but impressive professional looking party pieces for their own social events, but gives the teams a chance to be introduced to a whole array of delicious ingredients which they may never have worked with before.

Having recently managed one of these events for one of our global clients I would like to thank the Holiday Inn, Camden Lock for being the ideal venue to hold our cooking events. The function room is built with floor to ceiling glass windows looking directly onto the Camden Lock, so it's beautifully light and a perfect setting. The staff were really helpful, and the exclusive use of the function room kitchen was absolutely perfect for the cooking master class.

As far as Team Building goes, the cooking events are my favourite to manage, enabling the teams to work well together to create some very ‘interesting’ results! The teams in this Canape Creations event paid great attention to detail and managed to produce perfect quail scotch eggs, mini lamb ragout pies and some delicious bite sized Tiramisu! I’ll be using some of these recipes at home!
