Role Description

This is a flexible role and is easily adaptable to different interests and involvement levels. It entails leading self-directed art programmes of your choice as a fundraising and awareness initiative for the Teapot Trust. Please note, this would be a programme developed completely by you to correlate with your interests or skills. It involves running an artistic session, charging admission or a fee for participation, and donating proceeds to the Trust. Groups can include knitting, crafting, painting, sculpting, crocheting, journaling, etc. and could involve a weekly meeting for you and your friends or community members. Workshops or 'crafting parties' are also options if you are looking for less of a commitment but are still interested in raising funds for us. Art therapy or relaxation techniques can be incorporated into your sessions if you so choose. Learn more about professional art therapy here.

  • Organising a programme by deciding who you want to involve, where you will hold your programme, what you will be doing, and when you will meet

  • Promoting your group through social media, word of mouth, or physical promotions such as flyers or leaflets
