Thomasin Toohie is a woman of many talents! I first met her at Baskerville Hall, where she was playing a variety of whistles and flutes, mainly for Irish folk music. She plays in the Border Reivers, (one of three bands she belongs to!) and also goes to the Globe Open Mic nights on Tuesdays.
She also makes artistic ceramics, and her other talent is in painting and drawing.
She has been teaching classes at the Old Electric Shop. Now she's moved the venue to the chapel hall opposite the Drill Hall in Hay (it being quieter and better suited to concentration!) and is starting classes again on 7th September from 10.30am to 12.30am, for £6.50 a lesson.
The advert in the WyeLocal has the old details, of the Old Electric Shop, but the contact number is right, 07955 344958.
She's also doing a special day course at Baskerville Hall on Saturday 17th September from 10am to 3pm, on landscape painting techniques - there's plenty of scope for painting beautiful landscapes from the grounds! This course costs £40.
