The Itty Bitty Workshops are here! Find out more about our newest event!

New adventures for team Itty Bitty!

We are excited to announce the launch of the independent Itty Bitty Book Co Workshops! This is something we've been planning for quite a while and I am so happy it is finally becoming a reality. At the latter half of 2016 I got the honour of been asked to create and deliver workshop experiences to two groups of leaders and teenagers/young adults. Each workshop was filled with positivity, craft and new experiences for the participants. It was a pleasure to do and a was a great success. 

Some general comments from the past positivity workshops I did with teen girls and their group leaders:

'I thought the workshop was really uplifting and a very positive experience for the young people. The girls left that day feeling on top of the world!! It was also a really good bonding experience for the girls, because the activities involved working together, this helped to facilitate the beginnings of some positive friendships'. - Group leader and social worker
'Fantastic, Informative, Your love of the topic & passion really shines through you. Keep sharing the love’ - Group Leader
I really enjoyed the workshop it made me really think about my approach in life!’ - Group leader
It was very inspirational and put a smile on my face, especially the things people wrote about me and quotes, thank you!’- Participant

Following the success and positive feedback from the organisers of the respective groups and the participants I was encouraged to make this service a permanent fixture to the Itty Bitty portfolio. That's why this month i'll be running an independent workshop, in an amazing space with loads of excited things planned for you all to enjoy!

This workshop will give students (ALevel & University students) the opportunity to create their own tailor-made positivity box.

As with all of our workshops there will be a short talk on the science of positivity and the importance of happiness. Along with enjoying refreshments and meeting like-minded people!
