There are people that come back time and time again, and some attend a course with us for the first time.

Vibrant Watercolours Tutor: Paul Riley 10-15th March 2019 A perfect course to banish the darkness of this time of year and spend time in the studio painting in good company and learn new skills. If you are new to watercolour painting and want to have a fresh start or have experience but often get ‘muddy’ watercolours this course is intended to familiarise participants with all aspects of colour, so you can paint fresh vibrant watercolours.

You will experiment with various exercises involving still life and or landscape will be indulged in for the purpose of liberating the students’ sense of colour. The course is designed to stimulate both beginners and advanced students where much of the technology of colour is explained through demonstrations and explanation.

“We wondered at times if we were mad to travel so far for painting lessons, well there was nothing that could possibly prepare us for how much every last detail of our trip would exceed our expectations! Our course was awesome, and in terms of painting life-changing! Paul’s attitude to colour was inspirational, and a revelation to us both, and will certainly result in clean clear bold colours from now on. Thank you Paul, for all the tricks, tips, but mostly for the gift of colour.” Althea, South Africa


COURSE INFORMATION Painting/Drawing/Printmaking - Using Natural & Found Pigments Tutor: Kate Marshall Feb 17-22nd 2019 This is the second year for Kate’s exciting course which combines drawing/painting/printmaking – its an inspiring course to kick-start your year. If you want to get back into being creative, or if you are new to drawing/painting or printmaking, its a fantastic hands-on approach and if you are a more established artist, it’s a great chance to experiment with natural pigments & materials.

Gathering your own and using some of Kate’s collection of materials, you will explore ways to make art from the physical world around you. Learn how to mix and bind pigments to make inks and paints. Experiment with alternative ways of mark making and printmaking. Finding oak galls and brewing oak gall ink (used to write the Magna Carter and Beethoven’s scores!). Making mud monoprinting ink and printing ink for relief and intaglio printmaking from soil, stones and charcoal. Making tempera paint form stones and soils. Collecting tools to make interesting marks; sticks, leaves, wool, feathers, hair and seaweed. It will be a week of exploring and experimenting, you might even use a tractor as a printing press (farmer availability reliant!). You will draw from life including the things we collect, sketching outdoors if the weather is warm or working direct with the objects back in the studio if not. You are also welcome to abstract ideas or create imaginative responses or text based work from the materials and locations. Kate studied at Falmouth School of Art, gaining a distinction in MA Fine Art as Contemporary Practice, and a BA at Goldsmiths College, London. As an artist she exhibits regularly and teaches at Coombe, Plymouth College of Arts & the St Ives School of Painting.

“An excellent, inspirational course, we were blessed with a special tutor in Kate, who lives with such a passionate creative presence, it was also wonderful to be nourished and enriched by Tanya’s food which has been influencing and encouraging my nutrition during the past week, long may it continue”! Amanda, Course Participant 2018


Pottery Thrown & Handbuilt Tutor: Chris Taylor 10-15th Feb 2019 We are thrilled to introduce this new ceramics course with Chris Taylor. Chris’ work is highly collectable and very different in style and form to our other regular tutors Tim Andrews & Laurel Keeley. As with our other courses you will have the chance to throw at the wheel as well as hand-build freestyle or using moulds and is open to participants of all experiences from beginner to professional. Chris will also introduce his approach, which will include a range of different surface decoration techniques and a passion for experimentation and free expression.

“I like teaching, making is quite solitary, so its nice to teach from time to time, its really nice to be with other people who are interested in the same things, to talk about their work and to find out what makes them tick”. Chris likes to combine materials, techniques and processes which are not commonly seen side by side, to create objects that are rich with colour, texture and material quality. His work is exhibited at a range of galleries and stockists including Contemporary Applied Arts, London and Galerie Altena, Holland. In 2009, Chris returned to academia, completing a Masters degree in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art. During his time there, he was awarded the Royal College of Art Travel Scholarship which he used to undertake an artist’s residency in Jingdezhen, China. He went on to join the team at Plymouth College of Art where he worked for a number of years as their Pathway Leader for Ceramics & Glass. He now lives in Scotland and focuses on his own work whilst running Clay Works Studios in Dumfries, South West Scotland.

Chris Taylor grew up in South East London and studied 3D Design Ceramics at the University of the West of England in 2000. Since graduating he worked for a number of studio potteries around the UK including the Dartington Pottery (Devon) and Edinbane Pottery (Scotland) during which time he developed his own practice as a ceramicist, taking inspiration from the rich history within the ceramic field.


COURSE INFORMATION The Watercolour Workshop Tutor: Paul Riley 24-29th Feb 2019 This great all-rounder course will help enable you to create vibrant, colourful watercolour paintings by working on a series of different techniques, taught and demonstrated throughout the week.

This is a great five day workshop because deals with all the key issues of watercolour painting from tools and techniques. Which brushes are great for capturing different effects? How can I effectively use masking fluid? How can I mixing eye-catching colour with it getting ‘muddy’? How can I create light and mood? If you are an experienced watercolourist and want to advance your painting, this workshop can help you to develop a range of new techniques. If you are a beginner, you will be introduced to key issues & terminology and have the opportunity to try a range of subject areas, so you can start to determine what you enjoy. During the Watercolour Workshop week you’ll be painting flowers, still life and capturing the stunning Devon landscape. It’s effectively the course equivalent of Paul’s best-selling book ‘The Watercolour Workshop’ so each day a day a different subject matter will be explored, with specialist techniques and approaches experimented in each.

Paul will demonstrate extensively throughout the week, time will also be given to experimenting with your own work, and for critical feedback if desired.


The Art of Attention - Drawing, Ceramics & Yoga Tutors: Laurie Steen, Laurel Keeley & Lauren Hill 1-5th April 2019 The Art of Attention combines three of our loves: pottery, drawing and yoga. This special week is suitable for people with experience in one of the disciplines, none of them, or all of them! Regardless of your level of experience it will enable you to make space to connect to the materials - to clay and charcoal, graphite and slips. You will have time to explore ways of looking, to focus your attention and awareness, enabling you to connect with the work you are making. The three practices, led by three tutors who are experts in their fields, will guide and inform one another. They each have a wealth of experience and have had a long relationship with Coombe, where they have run separate courses, developing a passion for each other’s work, a desire to spend more time together and to share their techniques and skills with you.

Each day will begin with a pre-breakfast yoga practice to awaken and illuminate. After breakfast the morning will be spent exploring drawing mediums and mark-making. Using the power of play, the drawing workshops will focus on finding and nurturing each persons own unique line and intuition. After a delicious wholesome lunch, the exploration in clay will begin, grounding into the elemental material (making forms either on the wheel or by hand) working your drawing experiments into the clay with slips and a variety of techniques, each working to your own project. The day will close before dinner with a second yoga practice of stillness, space, and spring rhythms. The final day, Friday, is a shorter day, ending after lunch, it will include a morning yoga practice as well as time to complete your work in the pottery and the drawing studio.


COURSE INFORMATION The Magic of Watercolour Flowers Tutor: Paul Riley 14-19th April 2019 This course is the accompaniment to Paul’s most recent book “The Magic of Watercolour Flowers” and explores the themes within it. During the five days you will have the change to dive into the process of painting watercolour flowers and Paul will guide you through Paul will take you through the processes of painting watercolour flowers including brush techniques, colour mixing, the use of different paper, and the exciting aspects of composition. Studies will be made in the studio and, weather permitting, in the landscape. The purpose of the course is to acquaint beginners with the basic methods of depicting flowers and at the same time stimulate the more practised into new directions. Flowers mean different things to different people, therefore the course recognises the different ways of seeing them. For example some people love the pattern quality inherent in flowers; others that extraordinary variety of forms. No particular way is the way; all the possibilities are explored.

The more advanced, or even the precocious beginner has the option to see flowers with figures a or portrait. This is a very interesting way a way of seeing flowers in context. Paul has a distinctively free, loose way of handling the paint using a variety of brushes with bold colour content. These techniques will be explained and extensively demonstrated. All work in progress will be analysed and sensitively assessed in order that students can progress at a pace to suit them. Step into the garden and enjoy!


Powerful Pastels - a mixed media approach Tutor: Sarah Bee 21st-26th April 2019 & 16-21st June 2019 *NB note these courses end after breakfast on 20th & 20th During this course Sarah will take students through her approach to mixed media and producing strong vibrant pastels. As with all Coombe courses Sarah has a hands-on approach so she will demonstrate throughout the week and there will be an emphasis on individual tuition. The group will paint in the studio after making sketches of the local landscape, do also bring any of your own existing sketchbooks if you have them to use as additional source material. Sarah Bee moved from working as a graphic designer into makeup and body painting for the film, photography and advertising industries. Later she studied watercolour at The Heatherley School of Fine Art in London and began to develop her individual style after she was introduced to pastels whilst painting with the Blockley Group. Whilst her methods and techniques are constantly evolving, Sarah’s work is always inspired by, and an interpretation of, colour, texture and light. Working on mount board Sarah builds layers of Gesso, acrylic paint and chalk pastel to achieve a lively and textured image of the landscape. A member of the Pastel Society, Sarah exhibits regularly at the Mall Galleries, London and has received several awards including the Caran d’ Ache award in 2014. She has completed corporate commissions and has her work in private collections in the UK and in Europe.


COURSE INFORMATION Ceramics thrown & handbuilt Tutor: Laurel Keeley May 2-5th 2019 This is a lovely weekend intensive pottery residential with the internationally recognised potter Laurel Keeley. Laurel works with coloured slips and drawn line in stoneware and porcelain clays, with glazes and oxides applied, often enhanced with Gold Lustre. The slab bowls, plates and pots are vehicles for figurative designs of fish and fields, rivers, canals and glimpses of the world through windows. More recently she has been working with images of gardens and landscape, her method informed by painting. Having exhibited her work at Coombe for over 15 years this new course is a natural progression to introducing Laurel’s work to an increasingly wider audience. With the number of students per course kept deliberately low to enable a high level of tuition for participants of all skill levels, Laurel’s courses regularly sell out.

The course is designed to allow both experienced potters and beginners exploring clay for the first time to do slab and coil work, as well as throw pots on the wheel. During this course there will be a focus on ceramics for outside spaces be it a garden, patio, balcony or driveway..however it’s not essential to make work for outside if you would prefer to make pieces for the home that are inspired by the garden that’s fine also. Students will work in stoneware with coloured slips and drawn line. The scale of Laurel’s ceramics ranges from tiny pieces that fit in the palm of the hand, to coil built forms a metre high and students will have the chance to make and fire, both small and medium-scale work according to their own ambition.

“I learned so much & came away feeling relaxed, rested, inspired and extremely well-fed and cared for. You have created a small paradise in that beautiful valley and I feel very privileged to have been able to share it with you” Beth, Course participant 2018


Raku Pottery Tutor: Tim Andrews - SOLD OUT May 12-17th 2019 Tim is known internationally for his distinctive raku ceramics. He makes individual work-black and white with linear decoration or burnished muted coloured slips. The pieces are usually thrown, although some work is hand-built. During this exciting course, for the first two days we will concentrate on clay work, making finishing, burnishing using porcelain slip and terra sigillata. The second half of the ceramics course will concentrate on glazing, decorating and firing techniques with particular emphasis on using the resist slip method (often known as naked raku). Some of the processes we will be using are relatively slow: applying and burnishing slips for example – and especially the ‘naked raku’ which requires more glazing time. Obviously therefore it is difficult in the time available to raku all the pieces made on the course. To avoid the focus of the course being rushing to get work dry and through the kilns, Tim will bring a selection of bisque pieces for you to experiment on. Anyone attending the course is also encouraged to bring their own bisque-fired pieces. If possible, please bring a selection with you to glaze and fire.

“We will raku as many pieces as we can in the time available, with the aim of everyone completing the week with at least a few completed pots each” Tim Andrews’ works have been exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions throughout the UK and abroad, including: Japan, China, India, USA. The Netherlands. France. Italy Germany. Belgium and Sweden. Works are in many public and private collections including: Stoke on Trent and Liverpool Museums. Ashmolean Museum. St John’s College, Oxford. Donna Karan, New York. Lord Chancellor Lord Irving. Imerys. The Royal Bank of Scotland (2006). Abromavich Collection. Coutts Bank. Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. He is the recipient of several awards and has been featured in many books and publications on ceramics, he is the author of two books on ‘Raku’, the second published in 2005 by A&C Black. Tim also writes occasional reviews and articles for Ceramic Art and Perception and Ceramic Review and regularly curates exhibitions. He is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association (CPA), a Member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and Honorary President of the West Country Potters Association.


COURSE INFORMATION Drawing - Ignite Your Intuition Tutor: Laurie Steen May 19-24th 2019 Let your drawing medium guide your creativity, with Laurie as your guide your objective for the week will be to draw without inhibition, with conviction, and to push the boundaries of your own practice, leaving the course with an idea of how to begin. By using the power of play, you’ll focus on finding and nurturing your own line and mark-making ability. Through discussion, testing and play, you will experiment with a variety of drawing mediums (ink, charcoal, graphite..) and surfaces, and using both wet and dry drawing techniques. 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.

In order to fully understand the basic skills of drawing, we will look at our awareness of drawing through the senses. We will begin by learning the perceptual skills of drawing, including the Perception of Edges, Space, Relationships, Light, & Shadow and the Whole of any given subject. In order to have a more intuitive understanding and insight into our physiological processes, we will better be able to acknowledge and interpret external stimulus and respond to the mediums we use.

Much of the inspiration for this will come from our natural environment and discussing positive and negative shapes within our work, and by looking to landscape and sharing ideas on how we would respond to specific subjects and forms in nature as we come across them. By working through a series of excises such as movement and shadow drawing, emotive sketching, blind drawing and experimental mark making within nature; taking risks in your drawing practice, becomes easier. All of this ultimately helps to formulate a plan of approach in ones own practice‌ How to work through your intent, goals, discovery, concepts, development and ultimately the implementation of our your work! All artists are urged to bring a few pieces of work as well as any favourite drawing implements, mediums and tools for discussion, contemplation and work,; as there will be informal individual critiques throughout the course. There will also be an opportunity to explore a range of mediums in the studio.


“I have been drawing shadows of trees in my garden since I was a teenager. I think this was perhaps the beginning of my need to make. Looking back it was about capturing the fleeting nature of trees, positive and negative spaces and forms in the landscape. I believe it helped me understand the need to focus less on the recognition of an image and allow the energy and spontaneity of process to become celebrated. It is the environment in which I live that continues to be my constant source of inspiration. ”

MATERIALS LIST – WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU Art materials: Please bring with you a selection of any and all drawings mediums as this course encourages experimenting and using multi mediums. These should at least include the following: • A woodless pencil, 8b, or 9b, • A selection of graphite pencils, • 1 or 2 kneadable Erasers (I find that Cretacolor are the best) • Sanding board is useful or sandpaper • Thin sticks of willow charcoal, (we will also have these at the studio) • Conte (black, white and any colour) • Chunky black charcoal (Cretacolor at Great art) and/or condensed charcoal • Any wet drawing tools including, favourite water soluble brushes. • Wirobound Sketchbook for multi media, preferably A4, in thick grade paper or watercolour paper. (approx. min. 200gm.+) seewww.artway.co.uk/a3-wiro-xl-mixed-media-pads or www.jacksonsart.com • Paper Pad or Wirobound Sketchbook for dry media, preferably size A3 or A2 in a good quality and smooth grade paper • Some larger sheets of misc. good quality paper i.e. a smooth printmaking paper or heavyweight drawing paper with absorbs charcoal beautiful see www.atlantisart.co.uk/cat.html for a broad selection of smooth cartridge papers. Also good value are www.two-rivers-paper-at-frogmore.co.uk/our-products.


COURSE INFORMATION Watercolours The Way of the Brush Tutor: Paul Riley 2-7th June 2019 Understanding your tools and their uses will release the potential of your creative mind, for you will paint with greater freedom if you are at ease with your the means of getting colour onto your paper. This new watercolour course with Coombe’s lead tutor Paul Riley, has been developed following growing interest in Paul’s extensive use of multiple brushes in each painting. If you want to feel liberated in your watercolour painting, free from using pencil or other medium, to focus exclusively on your brush work, then this is an ideal course for you.

I’m painting in a different way, exclusively using the brush to give more fluidity and expression..it loosens up the method of applying the paint giving an extra dimension to the work.

Each type of stroke and each effect is explained together with help in understanding individual brush types so Paul will demonstrate the various grips for specific purposes e.g. flower petals and leaves, water ripples and waves, cloud formations etc. Various brushes are shown in the course list, which will be the minimum used – Paul has an extensive collection that participants can experiment with. They are all made from natural hair, which gives a special touch in usage and cannot be compared with artificial hair. Paul will explain the differences and context for using each i.e sable, squirrel goat, wolf, pony etc, including mixed types e.g. sable/squirrel

I love to surround myself with the clutter of my trade. I have a large variety of tools and brushes – all good friends that give great pleasure and joy when used.


Ceramics Thrown & Handbuilt SOLD OUT Tutor: Laurel Keeley 9-14th June 2019 During this week-long course with established potter Laurel Keeley you will focus on throwing and handbuilding, what you make is decided by each individual student with guidance from Laurel so it’s a great course for everyone from beginners to professionals. Laurel graduated with BA Hons in English and American Arts and an MA in Commonwealth Literature. She studied ceramics at Exeter College of Art and Design and has been working as a potter for 30 years, selling work throughout the UK in selected galleries and exhibitions. Laurel has received two Arts Council England Major Awards for her work and is a member of The Devon Guild of Craftsmen. Her ceramic pieces are owned worldwide. This is a unique opportunity to work alongside and interact with Laurel through her work.

Laurel is an internationally recognised ceramicist who works with coloured slips and drawn line in Stoneware and porcelain clays, with glazes and oxides applied.


COURSE INFORMATION Painting & Drawing for Beginners Tutor: Francine Lawrence & Susi Hoyle 1-5th July 2019

This inspiring and enjoyable painting & drawing course for beginners is for people who have always wanted to draw and paint but just don’t know where to start. If you are familiar with the ‘fear of the blank page’ and that feeling that ‘I can’t draw’ this course is perfect for you.

Working in the well equipped art studio at Coombe you will work alongside other beginners, starting with pencil and charcoal, learning how to ‘see’ and draw simple objects, before venturing into colour with watercolour paints and water soluble pencils. Each day there will be time devoted to show you to keep a lively sketchbook or ‘journal’. It can be daunting for beginners to work outside in the landscape so we’ll also take advantage of the glorious Devon countryside to expand the skills learned in the studio to sketch outside, in the lanes or by the River Dart, building your confidence as we go. Along the way we’ll collect items and show how to include leaves, feathers and ephemera into your sketching journal. By the end of the week everyone will have several black and white drawings, some colour sketches, a sketchbook journal- and increased confidence to continue drawing and painting.

“If you have never had the courage to paint or draw outside then we can give you the confidence to get going.”


Francine Lawrence trained as a graphic designer and photographer and was the launch art director and editor of Country Living magazine. She loves the countryside and never goes anywhere without her sketchbook – making watercolour sketches of food is one of her passions (sometimes to the annoyance of her husband who often has to wait for her to draw his lunch before he can eat it).

Susi Hoyle also studied graphic design and became a stylist for Roger Philips the well-known photographer and botanist. She then took her skills to Australia where she worked as production designer on feature films and travelled extensively in South East Asia. She spent several years in Sri Lanka where she developed her unique colourful style of artwork.

MATERIALS LIST - WHAT TO BRING Lots of different painting and drawing equipment and materials will be provided for you to experiment with so all you need to bring is a sketchbook and if you don’t have one let us know and we can provide you with one.

This is a particularly useful course for people who feel that they want to find a new direction for their work or for those who have not painted for a while.

Gerry Dudgeon was born in India in 1952, where his father was a tea planter. Resettling in England in 1953, Gerry studied Modern Languages at Emmanuel College, Cambridge from (1970-74) following which he worked for the Museum of London as an archaeologist, developing an interest in uncovering the past by excavating layers of human occupation. Gerry went on to study Fine Art (Painting) at Camberwell School of Art from 1975-79, graduating with a First Class B.A. Hons degree, and continued his studies in painting as a postgraduate on the M.F.A course at Reading University from 1979-81, which he chose because it was run by Terry Frost and Adrian Heath. On graduating in 1981, he was awarded a Boise Travelling Scholarship from the Slade School of Art, and chose to visit New York to pursue his interest in contemporary American painting. On his return, he worked as an artist in London before moving to West Dorset in 1987.


Gerry has taught throughout his professional painting career and we are delighted to offer three courses with him annually. An admirer of the St Ives painters Peter Lanyon and Roger Hilton, Ivon Hitchens, the Scottish colourists, and 18th century Indian miniatures. Dudgeon’s experience of working on archaeological excavations manifests itself both in the scraping and wiping back of the paint surface to reveal underlying layers and in his fascination with Dorset’s ancient geological past. He draws parallels between Jurassic fossil forms and the shapes of the hills, and he enjoys finding rhyming shapes in man-made tracks, hedgerows, field systems and hill forts observed while walking high up along footpaths, often with a distant view of the sea. He likes to combine a scrutiny of close-up forms with a feeling for deep space in these acrylic on canvas paintings.

“Fantastic course! Wonderful tutor - Gerry!! Fantastic food too! LOVED the week, and the people”. Nikki, Course participant

COURSE INFORMATION Waterscapes by the Dart - from Stream to Sea Tutor: Paul Riley 14-19th July 2019 This unique course makes the most of the stunning local landscape and allows participants to explore the tricky nature of water, capturing it in numerous states, exploring it’s reflective nature and it’s focal point in the landscape.

Paul adores painting waterscapes and the accompanying skyscapes that go hand-in-hand. Attention is also given to the rendering of boats and their elusive perspective. This course offers a great opportunity for you to get to grips with both as well as the chance to explore the stunning River Dart. This unique course follows the water each day starting with the stream flowing through Coombe Farm then on to the nearby creek, the village of Dittisham, the mouth of the Dart at Dartmouth and culminating at the sea at nearby Blackpool sands.

“It seems that watercolour painting was almost invented for waterscapes. Many of the peculiarities of water can be best expressed by it. Ripples, waves, scattered light and reflections are easily rendered. Like all aspects of watercolour painting the secret lies in sequences - what to do first”


Painting - A Bold Approach Tutor: Tessa Pearson 21st-28th July 2019 A bold approach to sketchbook to painting is our new course with vibrant artist Tessa Pearson. You will spend time drawing the surrounding gardens and hedgerows using a variety of mixed media including resists, pastels, watercolour, inks and crayons to create lively spontaneous sketchbook studies which we will then translate into more considered paintings in the studio, capturing the energy and characteristics of the direct observation. Tessa studied Printed Textile design at UCA Farnham and the Royal College of Art, where she won the Courtaulds Prize and was commissioned by Liberty of London to produce a collection of printed silks. As Tessa Lambert she opened her own print studio and gallery in London and successfully sold her distinctive handpainted silks around the world.

Since 2000 Tessa’s professional practise has centred on her continuing passion for colour. Her work is an intuitive response to recollections of moments in time and special places, inspired by pattern and rhythms in space, currently is focusing on watercolour painting, mixed media and printmaking,working in series to explore and revisit a theme many times.

Tessa regularly exhibits and sells her work and teaches in the UK and internationally and has always been in love with colour. She has spent her life seeing the world as a myriad of pattern and captivating images. Marvelling at patches of brilliant yellow in a dramatic patchwork green landscape, the glimpse of a violet pot against a cobalt blue wall will thrill her. Her influences have been many, from Matisse to Hodgkin and the bold colourists of mid twenty first century painters Patrick Heron and Albert Irvin. Tessa sees gardens as living paintings and they have been the inspiration she has returned to many times. Creating her own garden has been an influential process informing her current work. As the garden emerges each year she repeatedly immerses herself in the planting, responding to the colour, rhythms and characteristics that excite. The time spent drawing and painting these moments build a rich recollection of imagery to create large scale paintings and monoprints. Working with unpredictable water media and experimental printmaking processes, mixing direct spontaneous mark making and considered digital imagery ensures the liveliness and energy captured from direct observation.

Abstracting the Landscape Tutor: Paul Riley 4-9th August 2019 “The most joyous thing about watercolour painting is its transparency and translucency – watercolour paint works by allowing light to pass through the particles of pigment, the colour reflecting from the white of the paper. The paper in fact should become your white paint, which is where your negative painting comes in and the magic begins!”

This course is designed to explore the process of abstracting from the figurative world of nature and to careful editing and composition to leave space for your watercolours to ‘breathe’.

The landscape tradition in watercolour has been long established. The methods and techniques are familiar to beginners and advanced alike. This course proposes a refreshing new way of tackling the much loved English and even International landscape. An exciting and adventurous new method of looking involves abstraction. To abstract needs a form of distillation a paring down to essentials whilst giving free range to individual expression. Many aspects of the process will be explored from the geometric to the passionate. Each individual will have the opportunity to discover their own interests from the simple to the complex relating to the environment in a new way that will excite beginners and provoke the advanced. Although there is an existing tradition in abstract painting it is not hidebound. Each individual has the opportunity to be themselves, all be it as rebels. Paul has been experimenting with ideas for a long time he will demonstrate many of the techniques and methods needed to loosen up the mind. Analysis of student work will be constant and sensitive to individual development. Dive in!


COURSE INFORMATION Mezzotint Printmaking Tutor: Sarah Gillespie 8-13th September 2019 We are honoured to announce this new unique printmaking course at Coombe led by Sarah Gillespie. Mezzotint, otherwise known as la manière noire, is an intaglio print method perfected in the mid 17C. It is a form of tonal engraving, in which the artist works from dark to light, pulling the forms of design out of a uniquely velvety black. Sarah Gillespie’s art career started in Paris in the early 80s. “When I arrived back at my father’s house, I think he – a first generation Irish immigrant – took one look at me and said, ‘well, if you’re going to be an artist, you’d better go to Paris. I remember being bundled into the car at 4.00 am one morning, with my portfolio in the back and setting off for Calais”. There Sarah spent a year studying 16 & 17C methods and materials at the Atelier Neo-Medici and says it was “an unbelievable education.” After Paris Sarah went to Oxford to the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art for three years and has since exhibited extensively. She is a a Royal West of England Acadamician and represented by Beaux Arts in London.

“Gillespie allows us to see things in almost forensic detail, and yet as we look at these drawings and investigate the worlds they bring to light, we come to realise a startling truth – that Gillespie is in reality an abstract artist. Her works are not about making faithfully accurate copies of the physical world. They are about making visible the invisible and giving form to the intangible”. Richard Davey


During the Mezzotint process the copper plate is first prepared so that it will print an even, deep black. This is done by pitting its surface systematically with a serrated chisel-like tool, known as a rocker, to create a more or less uniform mesh of grooves and raised burrs that hold the ink. The design emerges by gradually smoothing the burr with scrapers and burnishers so that different areas of the plate will hold different quantities of ink and therefore print softly graded tones of black through grey to white. A scraper is used to remove large areas of burr, and a burnisher for more delicate work. Highlights are achieved by burnishing the plate quite smooth so that when it is wiped no ink remains on these areas. No other print method gives up quite such magical softness in the highlights, nor such an utter inky darkness. Focusing on just a few locations and subjects Gillespie draws us into a world where we find ourselves mesmerised by moments of everyday beauty and interconnectedness‌.The charcoal and ink Gillespie uses to conjure up these intricate drawings perfectly capture the fleeting character of her subject matter, their essentially fugitive and fluid substance leaving a trace that seems to caress the paper rather than physically imposing itself on the surface. She can achieve the most dazzling darks imaginable with charcoal, but there is always the feeling that these areas of intense black are on the cusp of dissolving into light, or being blown away on a gust of wind.

MATERIALS LIST We will have a selection of scrapers and burnishers that you can borrow but if you have your own please bring them with you NB We will sharpen these for you. Please also bring: an apron, a sketchbook and your preferred drawing materials, a putty rubber and other erasers, images, drawings/photographs/objects to work from and any special paper that you would like to print on. All other standard papers and equipment, plates etc will be provided


COURSE INFORMATION Watercolours: Autumnal colour & Atmosphere Tutor: Paul Riley 20-25th October 2019

Painting in the Autumn provides a rich palette of colours: deep rich reds, golds, yellows.. and incredible skies, all great for creating atmosphere in your watercolours. Devon is a great place for painting both, out in the landscape beside the River Dart or on majestic Dartmoor National Park. These are explored both in the landscape (taking quick sketches and photos if the weather is bad) and in the studio by the warmth of the log burner. Although the main emphasis will be on capturing the rich colours of autumn, the course will also focus on trees and their leaf colours and how they can be incorporated into imaginative settings to enhance their beauty. Paul Riley is well known for his use of colour, particularly the fresh vibrant colour he achieves in his watercolours. Demonstrations of techniques will be frequent to help you achieve the freshness of his painting with demonstrations dedicated to both composition & colour. As with all of Paul’s courses this is a suitable course for all abilities from beginners to more advanced painters.


“Coombe Farm Studios is special - a beautiful hideaway to reconnect with what matters.” Course participant “Coombe achieves what I consider to be the whole point of the Arts, by encouraging the development of the individual through communication, the fostering of ideas and a shared experience of joy”. Laurel Keeley, Ceramicist

From the warm welcome, to encouragement and support from an inestimable tutor, sublime soul-food, and sharing stories with new faces, Coombe Farm holds a special place in my reawakened artist’s heart”. Course participant


Drawing Weekend - building your foundation Tutor: Laurie Steen, RWA 31st October - 3rd November 2019 This short intense course with Laurie Steen 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.


All artists are urged to bring some previous work, as well as mediums and books for discussion, and contemplation. We all have specific methods and tools to the way we work and sometimes it is just figuring out how to use them! So before coming perhaps ask yourself what is the one tool that feeds your creativity and is essential to your creative process. If you aren’t sure then we will work to figure it out and whilst this course will focus specifically on drawing, it can also be used in to push your drawing ability within other artistic practices.

MATERIALS LIST - WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU Please also bring with you a selection of any and all drawings mediums as this course encourages experimenting and using multi mediums. Essential items include: A 9B woodless pencil as well as a selection of graphite pencils, a Kneadable Eraser (I find that Cretacolor are the best), Sanding board is useful or sandpaper, Willow or scenic charcoal, (we will also have these at the studio), Chunky, A5 sketchbook, a wire bound Sketchbook for multi media, preferably A3 or A4, in thick grade paper or water colour paper. (approx. min. 200gm.+) check out: Artway or Jacksons Pad or wire bound Sketchbook for dry media, preferably size A3 or A2 in a good quality and smooth grade paper, or larger sheets of misc. good quality paper that you like to use. Try a smooth printmaking paper by Sommerset or Stonehenge for a smooth surface which absorbs charcoal beautifully. Both available at Jacksons. For a broad selection of smooth cartridge papers at different weights and affordable prices check out Atlantis Art, Photographic printing paper if using the printer. NB I will have at the studio a selection of papers for testing.


COURSE INFORMATION Painting/Drawing/Printmaking Figures from the Landscape Tutor: Kate Marshall 7-10hth November 2019 Drawing & Painting Figures from the Landscape, using natural & found pigments, is a new and unique course developed from Kate Marshall’s 5 day course in February. The differing element to this 3 day weekend course is the focus on figures and portraiture. Gathering your own and using some of Kate’s collection of materials, you will explore ways to make art out of the physical world around you. Learn how to mix and bind pigments to make inks and paints. Experiment with alternative ways of mark making. Finding oak galls and brewing oak gall ink (used to write the Magna Carter and Beethoven’s scores!). Making mud monoprinting ink and printing ink for relief and intaglio printmaking from soil, stones and charcoal. Making tempera paint form stones and soils. Collecting tools to make interesting marks; sticks, leaves, wool, feathers, hair and seaweed. It will be 3 days of exploring and experimenting, using portrait photos you bring with you, modelling and painting & drawing one another’s portraits and working from a professional life model. I am open to creating art works in any medium, my work is research based and is currently mostly inspired by the sea. Conceptual/fine art meets craft is how I would sum up my practice; I take great pleasure in the particularities of each of the mediums I use and am passionately hands on. Using unusual or poetically appropriate materials is a key feature of my work; site specifically gathered ash, charcoal, mud, sand or stones or beachcombed fabric.

MATERIALS LIST/WHAT TO BRING FOR THIS COURSE Sketch book. Pots and bags to collect materials and pigments. A few small empty jars for ink. Old clothes.


Ceramics Tutor: Laurel Keeley 14-17th November 2019 A lovely weekend intensive pottery course with the internationally recognised potter Laurel Keeley. Laurel works with coloured slips and drawn line in stoneware and porcelain clays, with glazes and oxides applied, often enhanced with Gold Lustre. The slab bowls, plates and pots are vehicles for figurative designs of fish and fields, rivers, canals and glimpses of the world through windows. More recently she has been working with images of gardens and landscape, her method informed by painting. Having exhibited her work at Coombe many years, her courses are a natural progression to introducing Laurel’s work to an increasingly wider audience. With the number of students per course kept deliberately low (max 7) to enable a high level of tuition for participants of all skill levels, Laurel’s courses regularly sell out.

My first go with clay - what an enjoyable experience, what an inspirational teacher! Zoe, Course participant

The course is designed to allow both experienced potters and beginners exploring clay for the first time to do slab and coil work, as well as throw pots on the wheel. Students will work in stoneware with coloured slips and drawn line. The scale of Laurel’s ceramics ranges from tiny pieces that fit in the palm of the hand, to coil built forms a metre high and students will have the chance to make and fire, both small and largescale work according to their own ambition. Laurel graduated with BA Hons in English and American Arts and an MA in Commonwealth Literature. She studied ceramics at Exeter College of Art and Design and has been working as a potter for 30 years, selling work throughout the UK in selected galleries and exhibitions. Laurel has received two Arts Council England Major Awards for her work and is a member of The Devon Guild of Craftsmen. Her ceramic pieces are owned worldwide. This is a unique opportunity to work alongside and interact with Laurel through her work. MATERIALS LIST - WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU If you have them, bring pottery tools, otherwise we will provide a basic selection. You will need a sketchbook and drawing materials. Please bring sources of inspiration such as photographs, magazine cuttings and drawings. There will be a charge of £3 per kilo of clay to include materials (clay, glazes) and firing to stoneware temperature in an electric kiln. Finished work can be sent on for a small charge.
