Maker's bio

April is passionate about all techniques in glass. She became captivated by its luminosity, jewel like radiance and ability to cast shadows of colour. Her own creative practise involves traditional stained glass techniques and warm glass techniques such as fusing. Her work is inspired by nature, folkloric stories and aims to bring about beauty through light. April has recently begun teaching at her workshop at Rock Farm in Shepton Mallet. She is also a Stained Glass Conservator at Holywell Glass in Wells and up until May this year has been running therapeutic art sessions for the Charity One25. Her approach to learning is to encourage and problem solve. Being dyslexic herself she understands that repetition and clear instructions are important to help learners get the most from her workshops. Her main aim is for her students to have fun, gain some confidence in a craft and leave with something uniquely beautiful.

Jacqui R reviewed: Stained Glass Panel Workshop with April Pebble

"Fabulous teaching and encouragement. Lots of choice of glass. April allowed me to create my own design within her teaching parameters. The class wasn’t too big. The only negatives was quite a high bench to work on and the actual studio was hard to find."

April Pebble responded:

"Thanks for attending the workshop Jacqui and it was great to see you make your design! I have now added a clearer pin and directions so that it is easier for others to find. With regards to the workshop bench it was made to meet the standard requirement height and be overall accessible to people of all heights. I appreciate your feedback regarding this though and I will now offer individuals a lower working space or a step should they require it- All the best, April :)"
