Art at Magpie Cottage

Tuition with Josie Tipler

Art tuition

Magpie Cottage in Wilmington, East Sussex is the perfect location to be creative. The co-owner of the cottage is artist Josie Tipler and you can book her for one to one or small group art tuition. You can arrange a single Arty Day or a short Arty Break, staying overnight in the cosy self-catering accommodation.

Josie can tutor in a variety of styles and mediums and covers a wide range of subjects.


Art sessions will be either in the cosy kitchen or, during summer months, in the garage studio next door, the walled gardens of the cottage or in the main gardens of Pickhams. You can also choose to go out for tutored painting days in the local countryside. 

All art materials and equipment can be supplied so you won't need to bring anything with you at all except a desire to be creative.
