We were greeted by Tara as soon as we pulled in. We enjoyed looking at both her art and the work of her husband. They have completely different styles, so was enjoyable to check it all out. Tara is a wonderful photographer, jewelry maker, fabric artist, and they also make honey! She is a renaissance woman! The lovely setting of... More

Went to see Andrew Csafordi's encaustic art and my first impression was wow. The works are very unique and creative. The medium of wax allows for a 3D effect to the works that captures the eye. I am not an art critic in any sense of the word so when my reaction was 'Wow', Andrew said 'Wow is good'.

Love Nest Studio Gallery is a true gem in Prince Edward County's art-rich community. Tara's nests are a brilliant idea, each of them unique, totally convincing and beautifully executed with the finest of material -- a wonderful blend of the natural and the woman-made. Visiting her charming studio, one has a sense of Tara's devotion to her craft, her genuineness... More

The best part of this gallery is the small bird's nest featuring tiny nests made from ribbons and feathers. What a friendly artist and so welcoming to us.

Really enjoyed exploring all of the Love Nests in the chicken coop. Tara's nests clearly call out to you as she creatively weaves a little love into each one. Great gift ideas for many life events where love is honoured. Highly recommend a visit.

Love, love, love the birds nest decorations. Each one unique and delicate. This studio is worth the drive to Prince Edward County. Moreover it is so close to other very interesting spots I found it to be a great way to spend the day.

I have visited Love Nest Studio several times and each time it has been magical! The property has a feeling of peace and tranquillity. The Love Nest studio is a cozy little cottage, artfully decorated with fibre nests, and related works of art. On the same property is a gorgeous, majestic barn that has been transformed into a beautiful county... More

Beautiful creations in an adorable setting. Well worth the trip. Only problem is that there are SO many I wanted, it was hard to decide. I shall cherish the little multi-coloured nest I did finally decide on. Am taking it back to France with me!

We had a most enjoyable visit to the studio and the barn. We purchased items made by both Tara and Andrew which we enjoy looking at everyday. We bought gifts for family and friends and they love them too. Tara and Andrew are extremely knowledgeable about their art forms so besides having fun, we learned a lot.
