Stained Glass Taster (3hr) Workshop - 1:2:1

Blue Skies Glass


Have you ever wanted to create your own stained glass piece? We'll show you how.

Tutor: Ruth Summers - creating bespoke glass art since 1998.

Ruth runs workshops teaching the skills of stained glass where you can create your own small copper foiled stained glass creation or unique sun-catcher which you can take home with you at the end of the day. Prior to the workshop we will work together to design your glass piece so your pattern is ready to be brought to life on the day.

We usually limit the design of your piece to a max of 5 pieces to ensure your project is completed in the 3 hour workshop.

I had a lovely afternoon at this workshop, and learnt loads from Ruth, who was very patient and encouraging and good fun too! The whole process is really interesting and absorbing, and I would recommend to anyone to have a go. I appreciated Ruth putting so much effort in, with planning my design beforehand and having the pattern all ready. I love what I made, and I'm keen to carry on and learn more and see what else I could create.

Response from Blue Skies Glass Studio:

Thank you for your review Marianne,
it was lovely to spend the afternoon with you and so glad you enjoyed, learning about stained glass, many thanks, Ruth

I totally recommend this course as a wonderful way in which to explore using copper foil and creating a beautiful piece under the guidance of Ruth. From the start to finish of the day Ruth was patient, helpful and guided me through making a beautiful dragonfly. I was guided through the steps of cutting glass, to grinding, foiling and then soldering and found each process fascinating in its own right. Ruth was happy to help me solve any problems I encountered. It was a pleasure to spend the day in her workshop and even more so to go home with a beautiful piece of work to remind me of my day. As a result of the day and Ruth's encouragement got the 'bug' and will carry on learning more about the art of working with stained glass. Thank you Ruth for the best day I have had in a long time.

Response from Blue Skies Glass Studio:

Hi Veronica,
Thank you so much for your lovely review and for such an enjoyable day at our workshop together. It’s so wonderful that you have now got the stained glass bug and you’ll soon be making more beautiful creations! It was lovely to have you here.
Many thanks
