“Story Cover”

60 minutes

Every book cover is a glimpse to the story inside.  In this workshop, use your imagination to create a cover that’s a glimpse into your own story.  Using a template that’s a modified version of the cover of Frieda B. Herself, draw yourself flying on a bed high above the clouds, surrounded by things that help you describe what you love, what you’re good at, who you are free to be.

The end result is your very own Story Cover.  Compare with others in the workshop… are any identical?  Of course not.  Because no two stories are alike.  A great visual reminder that you have a unique story all your own.  Now just believe in it, dream big, and use it to make the world a better place.

“Free to B. True Tin”

60 minutes

What does it mean to be true to yourself and others?  Why is it important?  How can being true to you help you tell your story?  Support the stories of others?  Resolve conflict?  

And if someone you know was asked to to describe you in 6-8 words, what words would you most want them to use?

In this workshop, based on the book Frieda B. Meets the Man in the Moon, you’ll create a tin that’s filled with words you’ve chosen to describe your strengths, your key characteristics. How you’d best like others to know you. On the inner lid of the tin, you’ll place a sticker that reads “May the words in this tin help remind me of the person and friend I most want to be.” A true keepsake.

“Dream Board”

120 minutes

You’ve heard of dream boards, but probably not like this.  

The Frieda B. Dream Board Workshop doesn’t focus on “stuff” like homes and celebrities and vacation spots and toys. Instead, this workshop helps you better identify dreams related to your one-of-a-kind story. First you’ll brainstorm and list the stuff you’re naturally good at/interested in, and the stuff you truly care about. Then you’ll put your imagination into action by dreaming big about how those things might come together to turn into a something you love, something you can do to make a difference in your life and in the world around you.  

The final product of writing and cutting and pasting and drawing – and dreaming – serves as a dated and permanent reminder of just that.

“Free to B. True Board”

120 minutes

The moral of Frieda B. Meets the Man in the Moon is all about The Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated. In this workshop, Renata uses Man in the Moon to help you consider the results of your actions in response to hurting someone or to being hurt… and the benefits of being true to your very best self.

First – as a group – you’ll brainstorming as many words as you can think of to describe good characteristics in a person (trustworthy, reliable, unselfish, expressive).  Then, to make your Free to B. True Board, you’ll begin cutting, pasting and drawing specific words and pictures you’ve chosen to serve as a reminder of who you are when you’re at your very best. It’s these very natural and true-to-you characteristics you can rely on when working with others in any situation – conflict or not.
