Are we located close to the Barcelona city centre?
Taller Gingell is an artisan ceramics studio located in downtown Barcelona. It's located in the Poble-sec neighborhood.
We're centrally located next to Montjuic Park, site of the 1992 olympic games. It's about a 12 minute walk from the city center and 10 minute walk to the Ramblas and Port of Barcelona.
How is the team building event structured?
Team building workshops are structured to give teams a unique opportunity to learn about artisan ceramics, while meeting your team building objectives and allowing teams to work toward a common goal. Workshops last between 2 to 3 hours.
(1) Experience Artisan Craft
We start with an introduction to our facilities and to basic ceramic processes.
(2) The Activity
Then we start the activity selected. We facilitate by explaining the activity objectives, and timeline. Throughout our activities, we facilitate to ensure success of each team member. The activity typically lasts between 1 1/2 to 2 hours based on your schedule.
(3) Team Review
If desired, when the activity is complete we facilitate a session debrief so team members can share their creations with the team. This end cap allows each team member to reflect on and articulate their experience.
(4) A Memorable Experience
At the end of the workshop the team will also have created a memorable ceramic piece. The product is then glazed and kiln fired. The final ceramic creations are ready about two weeks after the teambuilding activity and can be picked up at our ceramic studio or shipped via DHL Express to your location.
If you would like to know more, please contact us today to learn about availability and pricing. We'll get to work putting together a custom activity proposal for building team morale.
