Corporate Team Building

 

Thank you for your interest in hosting an event at SiNaCa Studios.  We offer both hands-on and demonstration style events that can be scheduled off site at your location or on site any time a studio is not reserved for curriculum or artist rentals.  None of our events have a required minimum head count however, there may be some restrictions based on the number of guests, time limits or event type.  During a private event, we do try to eliminate all other foot traffic in the host studio. However, the gallery will remain open to the public and curriculum that is scheduled in a non-related studio could be happening.  Event scheduling will be based on studio and instructor availability.  We do require a signed contract and a 50% deposit in order to officially schedule the event.
