ECFTA Arts Educator, Mindfulness Facilitator
Stephanie Lines-Toohill is a key team member in our Supportive Arts program for young adults with (dis)abilities here at the Centre. The program runs three times a week, and Steph brings her magical mix of compassion, creativity and mindfulness to the weekly sessions. She reminds us to see, smell, seek and wonder. She helps us let go of our worries, identify our hopes and protect them in a special box, to forge on and do our best. Steph also works in the community as a Personal Support Worker for the vulnerable sector and is the founder of Sparrow’s Nest Makerspace, a collaborative community space to connect children and young teens. You might find her wandering the forest, looking for natural elements and found objects to incorporate into her group sewing and art projects. She has been leading mixed media youth art groups for over 15 years. She champions the process of each artist as a curious explorer.
