Supportive Arts Facilitator
You can often find Steph wandering in the forest with her beloved dog, Django looking for nature gifts and found objects to inspire art making in the nest.
She adores repurposing textiles and mixed media art making.
Steph is also a co-facilitator in the Supportive Arts Programme at ECFTA, a Community PSW and the Mother of four grown and fabulous sons!
Steph champions every artist as a curious and courageous explorer.
"Teaching Art has become more than a profession for me.
As I grow my own skills alongside the knowledge and techniques used in the Caring Arts practices, I am better able to support my students and clients.
I have studied many modalities in the world of Supportive Arts and keep an up-to-date resource library of activities.
I am a trained Hospice Volunteer and learned Narrative Art Therapy from Nicole at Hospice Wellington.
I enjoy using my skills to support individuals find the expressive artform that resonates with them."
Paisley is a local artist and art enthusiast who enjoys sharing creative space with others. She loves being in the nest and listening to all the sparrow songs and stories. Paisley's background in fine art allows her to teach and nurture other Makers with their art practice. You will often find her collaborating in the Supportive Arts programme at ECFTA.
If you want to talk about books; you can find Paisley in Sparrow's Nest!
Gemma has buckets of experience supporting people of all ages and abilities in creative settings. You will often find her collaborating in the Supportive Arts programme at ECFTA.
