Group Classes

TEAM BUILDING, EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT, AND CUSTOM GROUP EXPERIENCES

At ADX, we’ve found that working with our hands and using practical design skills is a great way to get out of a rut and boost creativity.

Working together at ADX can help your team build hard and soft skills while fighting burnout. Our instructors craft engaging design challenges that develop your groups’ skills and bring them together as a team. Participants naturally develop leadership skills in guided collaborative projects designed specifically for your group.

ADX offers numerous learning opportunities that focus on experiential learning and collaboration as a way to engage you, your friends, colleagues, neighbors and employees. Choose from our standard class offerings or customize your experience.

Edison Bulb Lamps

Learn how to wire a simple lamp and customize the base using a variety of tools in the wood shop. Individuals will learn and apply the basics of wiring a lamp (including socket, plug and inline switch), and complete the project with a custom paint or finish. A fun class with an attractive and unique finished product!

Minimum $500, 2 people ($100/per person after base rate is met) – max groups of 15.

Custom Sign or Piece of Furniture

Utilize the expertise of ADX’s talented maker-facilitators to create a special project designed just for your team. What do you need? We can help come up with a design that fits that need and your budget, assisting your team in learning new things and working together to complete the construction.

Minimum $1000; price depends on scope of work.

Portland Icons

Using Portland-themed icons designed by Walker of Waltronic Press, students work together to create custom collages and screenprint their images into posters.

Minimum $550, 2 people ($100/per person after base rate is met) – max 15 people.

MAGNETIC WALL ART

Work together to build a simple frame for a piece of sheet metal; design the content for a giant word wall; cut words, phrases, icons and images out of colorful vinyl; apply to hardboard and attach magnets to individual pieces. This is a fun activity that can be completed start to finish in 3 or 4 hours, and can then be brought back to the home or office and used as an interactive message board or art piece.

Minimum $600, 2 people ($100/per person after base rate is met) – max groups of 15.

Block Printed Canvas Bags

Design and produce personalized canvas bags (produced locally by Spooltown) using EZ-Cut linoleum blocks and a selection of carving tools. An artist facilitator will be on hand to share tips and tricks along the way. Combine forces with fellow classmates to design and print more complex designs or collages.

Minimum $600, 2 people ($100/per person after base rate is met) – max groups of 15.
