Teapots and Monsters

We're delighted to be working in partnership with the Teapot Trust, a great charity that provides art therapy for children coping with chronic illness in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

We're taking music to the charity and the Teapot Trust is bringing art to our Family Day prior to the concert A Little Book of Monsters, on 9 February at the Usher Hall.

Teapot TrustJess from the Teapot Trust tells us more about the charity's work and shares some photos of a recent visit from some SCO players!

It’s not every day that Teapot Trust art therapists want to think about Monsters! But in the run up to the SCO Family Concert: A Little Book of Monsters in February, we’re really looking forward to welcoming SCO musicians to our art therapy workshops and can’t wait to see what monstrous fun we may be able to create together!

The Teapot Trust was established just 2 years ago to provide art therapy for children coping with chronic illness, particularly those suffering from complex rheumatology diseases such as Lupus.

Art, just like music, as a form of therapy can be a very welcome distraction during long and boring hours spent in hospital, and it offers a safe space for children to work through any emotions and issues that may arise during their treatment.

As a small charity, the opportunity for us to work with SCO musicians and for us both to engage and inspire children struggling with illness is incredible.

We hope some of the children and their families will be able to come to the Monsters concert on the 9th of February, and we’re looking forward to showcasing our art therapy workshops at the Family Day prior to the concert.

Come and say hello to us then, if you can!

Teapot Trust art therapists will be offering art workshops at our Family Day prior to the concert A Little Book of Monsters, plus there will be lots of other exciting activities suitable for all ages!

To book tickets for A Little Book of Monsters concert or to reserve your free workshop place please contact the Usher Hall box office on 0131 228 1155.

Children must be stimulated with colors, forms and all sorts of crafted items and toys that would improve their creative and expressiveness skills. Especially for the little ones who have a hard time into proper development, it is in our power to help them. Stuck on you items worked just fine for my little daughter when she started walking around the house and discovering a brand new world for her.

The Bible, also called the Holy Book, is the only Book like it. Whereas many people know that it is a holy Book, they do not know exactly what the Bible is, or why it was offered. As soon as those two thoughts might be grasped, then we will have the ability to respond to the above question adequately. audio bible
