Eelpie Island // Art House Open day

The Sunday just passed, I headed down the London to visit Eelpie Island, an island in the Thames at Twickenham to check out the Art House Open studios. 
The Island is home to around 26 artists studios situated a working boatyard and is usually only open for about 2/4 days of the year, a chance to have a look around the studios and chat to the artists themselves.  I honestly had heard nothing about it before Gemma send us (and by us I mean myself, Gemma, Sam & Jo)  a link, either way I was intrigued.  
So Sunday rolled around and met the others in London and had an explore. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting from the day but it turned out to be a nice way to spend the day. Wondering around the studios, admiring the work, (which I must say I do slightly regret not buying a beautiful mug I found), taking some snaps and then heading in to the town to a street market, having a explore around the river whilst Sam and Jo played giant chess and finding some rather lovely looking secret gardens. 
I'll leave a link to the website about the open studios incase you want to find out more and I'll leave you with a few snaps from the day. 
I've decided to do a couple of collage style clusters of photographs as I'm not completely happy with the quality of the images, (I used a different film camera then usual and hadn't used it in 5+ years) but it seemed a shame not the shame them.
