Team Building

We all get on the treadmill of do, do, do leaving little time for reflection, understanding and allowing solutions to emerge.

Spending time outdoors has been proven in a recent study to increase performance in problem solving by up to 50%!  And hands-on creativity, ie. making, art or crafting shows a significant improvement in psychological resilience, as well as increased connectivity in peoples brains.  In other words they feel happier and have clearer minds!

 

Working with Lyn Paxman from Evolve, who has over 25 years of experience in training and development with a variety of sectors, working with leadership teams, managing change and employee engagement, we are now offering companies team building and creative sessions.

With Lyn's experience and Sam's creative flair, these days are not only hugely inspiring, but also therapeutic and creative!

 

If something more physical is your thing, then we also offer outdoor command challenges with Navy trained Nick, who will put teams through their paces with leadership and team building exercises, guaranteed to get your team working together and strengthening bonds.  

Range of flexible half or full-day packages available.

Please email for more details.

Testimonials

It just shows - you are never too old for craft. You made us all very welcome. Fantastic studio, great views and I love the cushion I made. I think we all far exceeded our expectations of what was possible, and couldn't have done so without your ideas and creativity. Many thanks - cant wait until we have another excuse to come back!  Mrs L, Wellington

 Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop on Saturday morning. I am so pleased with my bunting, and cant wait to display my Christmas decorations. Cant wait for the next one!  Mrs D, Taunton

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your sewing machine workshop. It was lovely to spend time with my daughter doing girlie things, and we are so proud of our apron! You did so well with everyone - you have endless patience, and lovely ideas. It was a great morning, and lots of fun! Let us know when you have another! Mrs B, Tiverton

For the third year running I have enjoyed your Christmas wreath making. Your workshops are so relaxing and fun, not to mention cheaper than any others in the area! Your materials are great quality and you always put the group at ease with your calm nature. It is a lovely start to the festive season to come to Bodley Studio. I look forward to returning next year. Ed, Bridgwater

Thank you for making our office party one to remember. We left your studio simply buzzing! You made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Even the less 'crafty' enjoyed it and said how therapeutic it was to relax and create - thank you! Taunton Branch

We found Bodley Craft on Google and booked 3 sessions with Sam for my son to prepare for his art scholarship. Sam was amazing! Her never ending encouragement and enthusiasm was inspiring. My son has a new energy for art since the sessions. We can't thank you enough... oh, and he got the scholarship! Thank you! xxx Mrs H-J, Taunton.

My daughter attended both the Junior and now Teenager art courses.She has loved your relaxed and calm approach to art. Her art has hugely improved. Your encouragement has taught us that it is not all about the end result but about the creative process - and the enjoyment gained from that process. You are an inspiration Sam, we love you! Mrs N, Illminster.

Before my child attended Sam's art session she only drew in black and white.  After one session with Sam I noticed a difference in her. Sam allowed her the space to be her, without judging or pressure, Sam allowed her to create how she chose and through this freedom came colour! Hooray, Sam you are a true gem. so glad we found you! S. D, Wellington 

I was told at school I would never be an artist and to basically stop wasting time trying. 30 years later I found Bodley Studio. Wow! Sam made me realise that "art is a personal journey, a chance for expression not perfection, for play not work". I can't believe I allowed one person all those years ago to restrict my creativity. The adult sessions have transformed my life and made it possible for me to enjoy art again - no matter what the outcome. Sam, you are a shining light in the dark xx  M G, Hemyock.

My home educated children love Bodley Studio. The Life Skills workshops are so useful. They have learnt so much from how to sew on buttons, fix clothing, knitting, sewing, learnt about nature, recycling and more! They now teach me! As soon as they leave Bodley they are asking when they can go back! R Mann, Tiverton.
