Art at Otterdene

Judy works mainly with clay and plaster creating work inspired by treasured personal possessions, found objects and natural forms from the countryside and coast. She exhibits regularly in galleries in Sidmouth, Axminster and Lyme Regis.

An experienced tutor, Judy worked for several years in Art Education teaching students from secondary to degree level.


These relaxed and friendly one-day sessions are currently held in Judy's studio below the stable yard. This can accommodate up to 3 students, guaranteeing close individual attention and guidance. You do not need any previous experience for any of the workshops as Judy is experienced in tutoring all levels and ages of adult students.

Workshops are open to visiting Glampers or those just wishing to book one day at a time. They run from 10am to roughly 4pm on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Introductory Price: £65.00 per day which will include refreshments. Please email Judy for more information and to book your place.
