TIF AND KITTIE’S

CONFIDENCE AND CREATIVITY WORKSHOPS

Each group has eight girls, who attend a 90 minute workshop, one evening per week, for 6 weeks. 

CONFIDENCE

I use self-esteem materials I have developed myself, drawing on the experience of the 20+ years I have supported vulnerable girls. This structured part of the workshop will last for the first 45 minutes and include age appropriate discussions, exercises and inter active games that deal with issues that affect girl’s self-esteem.
·       Session 1 – The YOUnique box explores individuality and uniqueness.
·       Session 2 – Responsibility, respect and good and bad choices focuses on all forms of bullying.
·       Session 3 – It’s all about me takes a look at why it’s so hard to talk about ourselves in a positive way for some but         not for others
·       Session 4 – “Does my bum look big in this” is about body image and the reason why so many girls feel bad for
looking a certain way.
·       Session 5 – “Tell” is a question and answer computer app where the girls randomly select a question,
answer it and the rest of the group can discuss whether their answer would be the same or different
(by session 5         the group are comfortable enough with each other to be able to debate or disagree)
·       Session 6 – I am…….. by others tells us of the uniqueness that others see in us. A very positive way to end the
programme.

CREATIVITY

Self-esteem and confidence building will remain the focus of the second half of the session, delivered in a more informal way. The girls will have the opportunity to explore their creativity in making bath and body products whilst socialising around a table. During previous workshops I have witnessed how using your individuality to create a finished product, wrapped, labelled and presented in your own collection is really confidence building.  This the time I would hope the girls will form friendships and support each other. Participants create a different bath or body product each week which are displayed in a gift box/basket, showcasing their unique creations on the final week.
Every girl attending the workshops is given a mirror sticker printed with a message to remind her of her uniqueness every time she looks in her mirror.  Here are the choices of message     “I love this face”   “Unyousual and Younique”    “Confidence not Change”       “Be you, Be Byoutiful”      “Amazing, confident ME”       “Be Individual, not Invisible”
After the girls have completed the sessions they can become involved in the future development of Confidence and Creativity, help with workshop delivery and the older girls may want to mentor the younger girls.

COST:  £55 (6 sessions) – includes all materials for product making.
