The Concept: Rattle Can Workshop


The What: Most corporates know about the 'build-a- bike' concept where teams get together and put together kids bikes before donating them to children in need. It's a great activity. This is something a little different.


If COVID-19 has taught us something, it is to lean into our creative side. (queue TikTok dances, sourdough, DIY furniture restoration or art projects). Lockdowns also meant a lot of us were riding our bikes more with bike shops selling out of stock quickly.


This concept starts at a unique rustic venue with the group being presented

some stripped down bicycle frames on stand, pre-coated with primer and served up with a swag of cans of spray paint (i.e. rattle cans!).


With all the colours of the rainbow at their disposal the groups learns techniques of painting including masking and stencilling, using different colours to create the bike of their dreams.


The activity finishes with the paint drying and the group sent on thei


r way. Days later, the bike receives a finishing glossy coat and is built by a bike mechanic, ready for it to be ridden.


The bikes can be delivered or picked up. Everyone receives their own custom painted bicycle.


Make It Bespoke: This activity can include lunch, catering, drinks, photographers and even a DJ blasting beats from a cargo bike.
