A brand new course starting in 2018!
THE ART OF ATTENTION
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. We’ve also had a long relationship with Coombe, where we 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.
Each tutor will lead their practice, and join as the participant in the others.
All levels (in yoga or art) oh so very welcome.

CLAY FOR THE SOUL
The whole point of all of this is communication.
Sharing my skills with others has always been part of my practice, enabling other people who love clay to learn the skills that that can turn disbelief (“I can do THAT?!” ), into the amazement of achieving something that seemed unattainable.
This overwhelmingly applies to throwing pots on the wheel . . . .
I now teach solely at Coombe Farm Studios in Devon, because the space and facilities there are exceptional and totally unique. The family run centre is located in a sheltered and quiet valley, which gives the peace and detachment from working lives that people so often need. Courses are for a week, or for a long weekend, and both residential and non residential. Students come from across the UK, from around the world, and from the local village. Many return year after year.
I teach the simple skills of hand building and decorative use of clay slips to all levels, from complete beginners to professional ceramicists who want to explore different techniques.
There’s a lot of laughter! It’s ceramics for the soul – come and join us.
