Corporate Workshops

 

Delve into the world of textiles while learning about our nonprofit's mission to empower individuals from refugee backgrounds through sewing.

Join us for a creative team workshop. Spend about 2.5 hours alongside your colleagues, designing and sewing a collaborative product together. It's a chance to uncover hidden talents within your team: who's the design guru, who's a whiz with the sewing machine, and who naturally steps into leadership roles?

This workshop is about having fun together in a setting that's refreshingly different from your everyday routine. You will be guided by two of our team members. They will share tips and tricks of the textile world while introducing our mission to promote both ecologically sustainable practices and social inclusion.

Social Talk


Inspiring new creators, thinkers, and projects by sharing our expertise in social innovation, social entrepreneurship, and societal impact.

Founded in 2016, Social Fabric has evolved from an innovative social startup into a growing social enterprise. Focused on societal impact on a local level, we’ve successfully implemented a business model that serves our goals to create a strong and inclusive society for all. Over the years, we've faced crises, celebrated successes, and learned enormously in the process.

Now we want to share our knowledge with those keen on creating similar projects in the field of social innovation and entrepreneurship. We place great value on practice-based expertise and create custom-made presentations (or "Social Talks") to fit the needs of universities, associations, conferences, or projects.

Get in contact, and let us know which focus your team is particularly interested in and what your budget is. We are looking forward to the exchange.
