What a joy to bring up a tutor of this quality up this far north so that skills can be developed without having to travel all the way down south. Toni is an exceptional artist with a teaching ethic that suits lifelong learning well.
As with some other popular tutors who come a distance, we are trying to organise courses for the future with Toni in pairs, to meet demand and also to allow for development. Watch this space!
