The Swifts' Return Landscape Paintings by Guy Warner Cotswold Artist Swift Studio

Why ?

Swift Studio was set up in 2022 by Cotswold artist Guy Warner as a showcase for the finest handmade products from the Cotswolds and beyond.

 

As the name suggests, the building also houses Guy’s studio where he creates his vibrant landscape paintings.

 

The little shop in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire is packed full of wonderful art and design to suit all budgets, ranging from paintings and sculpture to tea towels and mugs, with the vast majority of our products being handmade by local creators .

We believe that good business can be, and should be, friendly, ethical and sustainable. That's why we work with as many local producers as possible and pride ourselves on our close relationship with our suppliers.

And why swift? Well, not because of the speed we go about things! The studio is named after the wonderful birds which fill the skies above Winchcombe in the summer months and are often seen darting above Bull Lane where the shop and studio are nestled.

View on a map

Our shop and studio are located in the enchanting Cotswold town of Winchcombe, which is perched amongst the northwesternmost of the Cotswold Hills, before the land levels off into the Vales of Evesham and Gloucester.

Winchcombe has a rich history with known human activity in the area dating back 5000 years, in the form of nearby neolithic long barrow Belas Knap. There are also various known Roman remains in the vicinity, but Winchcombe itself came to prominence in Anglo-Saxon times and under King Coenwulf (d. 821 CE) was one of the principal towns of the kingdom of Mercia. At that time it was a large walled settlement with a grand abbey.

Today the walls and abbey are long gone and Winchcombe is a peaceful working town and tourist destination, with a great selection of shops and restaurants and some of the best walking routes in England.

Sense of place and a connection back to the past are important to us here at Swift Studio and there is a medieval theme running through some of our products, notably the work of potter Michelle Soinne and stained glass artist Anna Gillespie.

But, then again, we stand very much in the present moment, giving exhibition space to thriving artists and artisans making a living from their crafts.
