WorkshopSF – Events and Parties


WorkshopSF hosts fun, engaging, and unique interactive activities both in-person and virtually for corporate events, teambuilding, and private parties! We’ve worked with companies such as Levi’s, Luna Bar, Old Navy, Yelp, Pinterest, Facebook, Google, Instagram, and many, many more to plan creative, super fun corporate events for both their employees and customers. Past corporate events have centered around specific DIY classes for creative team building, intern welcoming parties, department happy hours, and holiday gift making socials to name a few. We’ve also worked with individuals to plan birthday parties, wedding showers, private classes, and networking events for the community.

Each event is led by our amazing team of WorkshopSF instructors. We can accommodate events for large groups of 100+ participants, all the way down to small groups of only ten or so. While most of our events are hosted onsite at WorkshopSF where we can easily accommodate 10-20 participants, we can also travel to your office or one of our designated event spaces in the city to accommodate larger groups. If you are hosting a really large corporate event, we can offer walk up “make & take” stations where activities are simplified and can be done by anyone in 5-15 minutes. These work very well in large conference or festival events, and can accommodate hundreds of participants. Alternately, since more and more office teams are distributed globally or working from home, we have adapted several of our most popular events and classes to work online via the virtual / Zoom environment!

For each of our online events, WorkshopSF has designed a special event / class supply kit that includes all necessary tools and supplies, and will ship one kit to each participant prior to the event date. Each participant will also receive Zoom login credentials, and will login to participate as our WorkshopSF instructor leads the event virtually. We provide everything you need for each event!

This station setup is designed for much larger event environments such as festivals, conferences, or annual holiday events, and can accommodate hundreds of participants throughout the event. Activities are simplified so participants can walk up to each station, then “make & take” their projects. These are also ideal for mixing and matching multiple activities. If you do not see your ideal activity in the following list, talk to us as we often customize these activities for the client.

Popular activities have included: block printing (notebooks, beer openers, tote bags), button making, candle making, dye stations for tie dye / shibori, flower crowns, kokedama plants, leather working (coasters, keychains, accessories), mini-wreaths, terrariums, wooden bottle openers, wooden candle holders, and more!
