What we’ve got up our sleeves for weddings

Recently the newly finished Catalyst Airship got to be utilized for one of the purposes it was designed for… for brides to get ready for their wedding!

Lovely Monica picked a small funky venue for her wedding– and the venue didn’t have any private rooms available… so she had her hair makeup dress ritual all done inside our 25 ft airstream.
























Our Unique Signature LOVE DOVE is a great way to add delight to your reception as well as capture the well wishes & blessings of your guests… on laser cut white feathers that become a precious keepsake after the big day.

And Lastly– our Champagne Skirts are an enchanting & efficient way to distribute bubbly and other libations to your guests at your reception!
We have a skirt that holds 50 glasses & one that holds 90!
Living Tables are another way to have both food & drinks & even gift bags given out.

Interactive Zone Production- Oasis at LIB Music Festival

Memorial day weekend we debuted a new Interactive Zone Production offering at a large music festival in California called Lightning in A Bottle.

The Oasis was a refreshment lounge with free hospitality and some arts & games activities.
It can easily adapt itself into a VIP Lounge or add more water functions and become a zone for  guests to get refreshed at hot Summer events.


Inside our tent was also an ARTS CO:LAB corner with various creative activities like making Awards, Playing Cards, and the Co-Creation Roundtable exercise- resulting in synergy art pieces we hung around the tent.


And as if that wasn’t enough– we had the TRANSFORMATION STATION– Face Paint & Body Art Booth where we transformed people into fanciful magical versions of themselves.
Our Pro people paint team included Kelsea E, Audette Sophia, Bri Tree, & Naomi Aeva.

Makeover of the Makeover Studio!- The Airship before & after



In late Summer of 2013- Catalyst Arts owner, Audette Sophia bought a 1978 vintage Airstream trailer off of Craigslist with a dream of transforming it into her dream studio as well as a unique addition to Catalyst Arts production and entertainment menu.

Many design sketches, setbacks, progress and work went into the next year while the Airstream was slowly transformed into the Airship.


Check out some of Lucas’s work

And Alex’s fabrication works.

We are thrilled with the final product and happy to announce its availability for Makovers & creative photo shoots- which can be seen on Audette’s human décor site- and also as a Photo Studio, Mobile Makeup Studio, Green Room, or VIP Lounge for Special Events.
