DAYS OF BUILDING

ADX TEAM BUILDING, EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT, AND CUSTOM GROUP EVENTS

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 – directly and through our partners – offers numerous learning opportunities that focus on experiential learning and collaboration as a way to engage your employees. Beyond basics, like Woodworking 101 and Introduction to Screen Printing, we facilitate 1-on-1 and project-specific instruction through team Days of Building. Past groups have built tables and chairs, electronic signage, and even a Pacman arcade console for their office.

Magnetic Wall Art

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

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.

 

Edison Bulb Lamps

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

Learn how to wire a simple lamp with Josh from Made by Mabry; customize your lamp base using tools in the wood shop, 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.

Portland Icons

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

Using Portland-themed icons designed by Walker of Waltronic Press, students work together to create custom collages and screenprint their images onto locally produced canvas bags.
