Build A Bus

…is a wholly original workshop specifically designed by London Drawing as a
team building activity. It’s an all inclusive, energising and collaborative project
where everyone wants to get involved. All of our events aim to be as engaging
and fun as possible, but this often proves a favourite amongst clients and
truly helps build individual skills whilst encouraging non-competitive integration
and across the board co-operation.
Designed for groups ranging in size from 10 to 150, this workshop is 3-4 hrs
long and can easily be linked to another activity, such as The Mobile Drawing
Club, to create a full day event package if required.

The day begins with a seemingly simple ice-breaking activity where
participants draw each other, using felt-tip pens and the templates provided.
Drawings are collected up and discarded for the time being.

The task is to build a scaled down version of a Routemaster Bus. This could
also be a car, or a jeep or even a horse. Nothing fazes us! Now it’s not as
difficult as it sounds and no specialist skills are required, we just ask that
people work together to solve the problem. Everything is explained to the
teams and they are given all the tools to complete the task.

Through co-operation and teamwork our groups develop a successful
assembly line that builds all the separate units in the right order.
Once these parts have been constructed our teams get together and build the
bus together.

Finally they add their pictures, that were discarded earlier, to the
windows and we have a unique team bus with the whole company on board, ready to drive forward into the future. All aboard!
