Eleanore May and Jake Stark in Park Lane, and David Robinson and Mark Worrall in Wells Street, two great studios
From the Richard Jefferies Museum, we went into town, to visit Eleanore May and Jake Stark's studio in Park Lane, delightfully situated across from Faringdon Park. In the hallway, we encountered the impressive metal structure in the brochure, and then upstairs found some paintings in the same series as the one in the Window Gallery, along with other pieces seen below:
There were also cards and some amazing knitted things which I'd like to look at again when not under such pressure to see everything, below Jane and Nicky are looking at a lovely selection of things on the bookshelf
From Park Lane, we went round to David Robinson and Mark Worrall's open studio in Wells Street, like Eleanore and Jake, they had prepared very well for opening their house, it provided a perfect backdrop for their work:

They had a good idea for capturing people's details for their mailing list, a painting was given to one of the names which went into the box!
More of David's great views of Swindon:
They are mostly easily recognisable, and hopefully I'll get them correct. Above back of Savernake St, and the Regent Circus building site

It was great to have these 4 newcomers to Swindon Open Studios taking part this year.
