Where do I start! So inspiring from start to finish so much information and care in the planning and running of the session - really felt a connection with Toby and was able to be myself which is important - Toby very much gives you confidence in what you are experimenting with and this is something I will take into my life going forward.

Toby is one of my favorite people of all time. She has the most lovely home and perfect studio to suit any artistic need and beyond. Whether out on the garden patio or in her spacious but cozy studio you are guaranteed to leave with a wealth of knowledge and materials for beginners and experts alike. The tea and Godiva sweeten the deal but madam renaissance is the hostess with the mostess and an exceptionally talented artist and teacher.

I spent a lovely afternoon at Toby's. Toby and her husband Joe hosted me together and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to talk with such great artists and get tons of insights from them. We had a tour of her home and studio (which is wonderful and packed with fun details), then she showed me some very interesting art techniques and let me tried them out. I ended up drawing on one fat coffee mug and one cup + saucer set. Can't wait to start drinking my morning coffee from them!!
