I realised the importance of the map in trying to plan visits, but in the end we were constrained by the Marlborough Jazz Festival, so avoided any studios in Marlborough, or traveling through the town, imagining snarled up and diverted traffic.
First of all we headed for Baydon, a delightful village I don't think I've ever visited before, there was no difficulty finding her studio because of the excellent signage, in the form of Corex advertising boards and laminated signs at the entrance to her road, and then welcoming bunting as we arrived at her house.
Kareen Jackson's delightful studio.
From there we went into a sort of conservatory room made from French oak where Jemma Gunning was exhibiting her printmaking.
Sue Lashmar's studio where we saw some of her colourful fused glassware and jewelery in her large studio overlooking a field of llamas.
Sioban Coppinger's house where Toby Robson had said he'd be involved in helping with a Bronze Casting demonstration with hot metal pours.
Sioban's 'studio' seemed to occupy most of a house, with different phases of the bronze sculpture making being shown in each room. There were also lots of drawings:

We decided to go the Barge Inn at Honey Street before heading for home.
Thank you to all those who showed such hospitality to us, and wish we'd managed to see more studios.
