‘Welcome to my World’ is a multimedia exhibition by Ems Coombes.
Ems is a disabled artist who has her fingers in many pies. Her watchword is fun but you can usually find her sleeping… or ‘chilling’ in her space.
This exhibition contains not only paintings and artwork but comedy, music and performance in the evenings.
The evening performances are donation based but are ticketed for number purposes.

Sunday, February 24th 2019, 10am, Space Studio 30 (Hex)
Ensemble playing for strings led from the violin by Mary Eade. A great opportunity to play standard string orchestra repertoire from the classical and romantic traditions without a conductor.
Tricks of the trade and technical insights about bowing, fingering, intonation, phrasing and much more.
Repertoire to include a Mozart Divertimento, Elgar Serenade for Strings, and some Respighi.
Places available for 8 x 1st Violin, 8 x 2nd Violin, 4 x Viola, 4 x Cello and 2 x Double Bass.
Mary Eade has had a glittering career at the very pinnacle of professional music making. A pupil of Yehudi Menuhin and Frederick Grinke, Mary gave her Wigmore Hall debut in 1975. Mary has played many concertos notably with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, London Festival Orchestra, and Tallis Chamber Orchestra.

– Build on current sewing technique
– Learn professional construction and finishing skills
The Ottoline jacket is an advanced course, this course will appeal to someone who is a confident sewer and is looking to tackle something new.
Merchant and Mills pattern and sewing sundries included, you will need to bring our own material to make the jacket.
A relaxed fun course to help you feel confident at tackling more advanced garment making, – design awareness skills, and to achieve a beautiful finish.
At the start of the course you will have an opportunity to try on ready made different sized calico toiles, to help you choose the style of fit you are looking for. This means choosing from a slim fit slick look or a more slouchy casual fit – depending on the size you feel comfortable in. You will be shown how to make any tweaks to your pattern, giving you a great looking garment, so you’ll be going home with a pattern you know fits beautifully which you can use again.
Your ‘Ottoline’ jacket can be made to the length that suits you, the sleeve length can also be adjusted to just the way you like it as well.
- The jacket could be made in various fabrics such as denim, plain twill, corduroy, needlecord or wool, to wear as an all round versatile indoor/outdoor jacket.
- It could be made as a summer evening jacket by using an easy to sew silk such as duoppion.
- It could be made as a Spring/Summer casual jacket by using a medium-heavier weight cotton or a gorgeous linen.ON THIS COURSE YOU WILL LEARN A COMPREHENSIVE AND INTEGRATED RANGE OF CLOTHES MAKING SKILLS AT AN INTERMEDIATE LEVEL.
- Reading a complex pattern
- Cutting out with precision and attention to changing the grain line
- Using a sewing machine with skill and accuracy
- Construction techniques and tricks of the trade
- Full assistance for fitting tweaks
- Design awareness skills
- Professional finishing skills
- ABOUT THE COURSE. . . . . . .
- All equipment, sewing machines and overlockers are provided, you may bring your own machine if you wish
- Course held in a large fully equipped sewing workroom with ample good quality equipment.
- Up to a maximum of 8 places available.
- Jane Norris leading the workshop and demonstrations along with an experienced assistant for courses with more than 4 participants.
- Course starts at 6pm – 9pm every Monday.
- The room will be open for teas/coffee from 5.30pm.
BRING WITH YOU:
- FABRIC see pattern details at www.merchantandmills.com
- MATCHING THREAD (Gutterman sew-all or Gutterman 100% cotton/linen/silk thread; choose a slightly darker tone rather than a lighter one if the match is not exact).
- TOP-STITCHING THREAD (If you would like to use this? If this is a contrast colour then also buy a sew-all thread to match your contrast colour).
- BUTTONS OR JEANS STUDS these can be bought later in the course or provided when you’ve had a chance to learn more about your design choices.
- (NB: Woven iron on interfacing is provided as a free sundry).
- Comfy shoes or slippers could also be good.
- Teas, real coffee and biscuits/nibbles will be available for rest breaks each evening.
CHOOSING YOUR FABRIC:
- Patterns will be provided at the workshop, for reference to the amount of fabric you will need to bring go to www.merchantandmills.com website. Select ‘Store’ then ‘patterns’ then look for the ‘Ottoline’ jacket picture – in the ‘details’ section you will see information on the types of fabric to use – I would advise using a natural fabric rather than synthetics as these are much easier to work with. See listed the amount of fabric required.
- You will also notice that there are different amounts listed according to the width measurement of your chosen fabric.
- If you would like to increase the length it may be helpful to measure a jacket you already have that is of a length that suits you. (Contact me for further info on increasing the amount of fabric you need if it’s more that an inch or two).
- If you are local – and as I live behind Stone Fabrics in Totnes it is easy for me to meet you in the shop and help you with any advice before the workshop weekend, just email to arrange.
- If tracking down a fabric sounds a bit complicated and you are not local to the area I would highly recommend choosing a Merchant and Mills fabric; there is a comprehensive picture list of suitable fabrics on-line for this pattern, plus a large range of similar fabrics. All of their fabrics are really lovely, of a good quality design and great colours – and they are super helpful in giving extra advice over the phone.
(Monday) 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“Plastic is all around us and we need to do what we can to help stop the use of excess plastic and especially single use plastic. ”
Lizzie says; “I would like to do my bit and show you how to make your own Beeswax food wrap. These food wraps are made from a piece of cotton fabric, pine resin and natural beeswax. They can then be used and reused for up to a year to cover, wrap and hold food.
They are designed to be wiped clean with cool water and a small amount of detergent so that they can then be re-used.
During this workshop we will be making a few fabric wraps each, using either the beeswax or the soya wax which is our vegan alternative to the beeswax. We will have a lovely selection of fabrics for you to choose form but if you have some at home you’d like to use make sure it is washed and 100% cotton and bring it along.”
£25 for the evening. We will supply: Fabric, wax, templates, pencils, rulers & savoury snacks. The bar downstairs at the Brew Co, will be serving drinks all evening. You will need to bring: Cotton fabric if you have a specific one you love.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book, letting me know of any dietary reqs. Cash payable on the day. I am not taking deposits, so if you book on and then can’t come, please do let me know, so I can offer your space to someone on the waiting list.
(Wednesday) 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Many people will be familiar with traditional practices associated with spirituality such as fasting, praying and observing holy days. But what
Many people will be familiar with traditional practices associated with spirituality such as fasting, praying and observing holy days. But what can we learn from practices not normally thought of as spiritual such as participation in sports, learning from animals and psychedelic experiences, as well as more traditional practices like fasting, praying, observing holy days and being kind. He asks why these practices work. Are their effects ‘all inside the brain’ and essentially illusory? Or can we really make contact with forms of consciousness greater than our own? In this Earth Talk Rupert Sheldrake will explain why he believes we can.
He will discuss his new book, Ways to Go Beyond, in which he looks at seven spiritual practices that are transformative and have scientifically measurable effects. All provide ways of going beyond our everyday states of mind into a sense of a greater conscious presence, bliss, fuller understanding, or deep connectedness. In this sequel to Science and Spiritual Practices, Sheldrake writes as both a scientist and a spiritual explorer.
Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D. is a biologist and author of more than 85 scientific papers and 12 books, including The Science Delusion and Science and Spiritual Practices. He was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge and a Research Fellow of the Royal Society, and is now a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, in Petaluma, California, and of Schumacher College. From 2005 to 2010 he was Director of the Perrott-Warrick project for research on unexplained human and animal abilities, funded by Trinity College, Cambridge.
