The Art of Attention – Yoga Ceramics and Drawing Residential Course
5-day workshop
April 22 @ 5:00 pm – April 27 @ 2:00 pm
Coombe Farm StudiosDittisham,  Devon TQ6 0JA United Kingdom

We are pleased to be launching a new course at Coombe – the Art of Attention – combining three of our loves: pottery, drawing and yoga. This special week will make space for the three practices, which in turn will guide and inform one another. Led by tutors who are experts in their fields, Laurel Keeley (Ceramics), Laurie Steen RWA (Drawing) and Lauren Hill (Yoga) have a wealth of experience. They’ve also had a long relationship with Coombe, where they have run separate courses, developing a passion for each other’s work, and a desire to spend more time doing it. So it came to pass, after lots of conversations, that we decided to design a course working together, and sharing with others.

Ignite your Intuition
5-day workshop
May 20 @ 5:00 pmMay 25 @ 2:00 pm, 2018
Coombe Farm StudiosDittisham,  Devon TQ6 0JA United Kingdom

Let your drawing medium guide your creativity…our objective for the week will be to draw without inhibition;  with conviction, and to push the boundaries of our own practice; leaving the course with an idea of how to begin.   By using the power of play, we will focus on finding and nurturing each persons own unique line and mark making ability. Through discussion, testing and play, with a variety of drawing mediums (ink, charcoal, graphite..) and surfaces, and using both wet and dry drawing techniques, we will experiment.  By working to find the most naturally suited drawing medium for you, and by fully exploring drawing mediums that inspire each of us, you will be better able to explore context and scale in your work.

Drawing and Intuition

3 day workshop
Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June, 2018
Lund Studios Itd, Alne Road, Easingwold, United Kingdom, YO61 3PA
(Please Note: this course has one place left)

Throughout this 3 day course we will be testing a variety of monochromatic mediums and surfaces, exploring the way in which we draw by further developing our drawing skills.  We will also be letting our drawing mediums guide our creativity, allowing us to focus on our drawing processes and drawing language which is unique to each of us.  This could mean owning a specific ability with tone, line or surface, or perhaps the perfect medium or drawing tool that works for you. Our aim is to loosen up and draw without inhibition…

Drawing Weekend
3 day workshop
November 8 @ 5:00 pm – November 11 @ 2:00 pm, 2018
Coombe Farm StudiosDittisham,  Devon TQ6 0JA United Kingdom

This short intense course with will use the Winter Landscape as our subject and the catalyst to explore a variety of monochromatic mediums.  The course will also focus on how we find and translate inspirations in the shapes and landscape around us.  We will aim to work quickly exploring a variety of line and mark making media while focusing on the natural series of changes that come with pushing the boundaries of our own drawing methods.

Thus leading us to discuss and work through how each of us become inspired and how we translate our inspirations from life as well as many multidisciplinary art forms into our own working processes.  Our aim is to not only push our own artistic boundaries but to also inspire and challenge each other,  and to have at the end a clear idea about the way in which we work and how to access that which inspires.   With much focus on honing and nurturing each persons own unique line and mark making ability.

I would love for these few days to be a platform for ideas to germinate and grow.  How do we best use that which inspires us and what is it that truly moves each of us to make work.  We will also talk about different ways of working, and compare a variety of different styles of drawing, whilst working around a roaring studio fire.  There will be an informal critique at the beginning and end of the course.
