Pottery-Themed Corporate Retreats
In our fast-paced world, we often rush from one task to another, missing the chance to bond with one another in the team and to figure out where we are heading together. This is why having rest and fun together is so important, for they restore and re-energise us. Held in a comfortable indoor environment which is not weather-dependent, pottery facilitates interaction and provides an opportunity for members to discover latent creativity in one another:)
As adults we gradually forget the artist inside us! This is why pottery is so exciting, for its re-ignites our imaginations and frees us from our mental boundaries. Its benefits for wellness have also been widely documented.
Tailored for beginners with no prior experience, our pottery team bonding workshop covers an overview of pottery making and teach you handbuilding and coiling techniques so that you can create your own unique cup/bowl/planter in a single session. In addition, you will learn how to form attachments such as handles, and decorative techniques. Collection of the fired pottery would be 3-4 weeks after the workshop.
TEAM BONDING PROGRAMME
As we are a home studio, we have limited capacity to host large teams in our venue. However, if you have your own meeting/seminar room, we may be able to hold it at your premises, subject to the prevailing safe management measures. To customise a team building activity for your team, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Us – Kenneth & Huiwen:
As a newly married Singaporean couple, we signed up for a pottery course in 2012 to spend quality time together. Little did we know that this casual hobby would eventually lead us to become full-time potters! In 2014, we started Studio Asobi (悠遊陶坊）to try and craft a simple and joyful life together in urban Singapore. Asobi (遊び）means “play” in Japanese and 遊 means “journey” in Chinese. 遊び心 (asobi kokoro) also means having an open heart. It has been such a wonderful life experiment for us ever since we left our corporate careers, and the road ahead is still unfolding with each step:)
We believe that every one of us has an innate desire and capacity to create. Yet our hectic city lives and societal pressures can often quench our creativity and weigh our spirits down. It gives us great satisfaction to see beautiful vessels emerge as our guests sit down to play, relax, and reconnect with their inner child!
