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.

Jacky King reviewed: Fused Glass with April Pebble

"I would thoroughly recommend this session on fused glass. April goes above and beyond to support as and when you need it. She's really keen to support as wide a range of learners as she can do. Don't hesitate to get in touch with her. I'm really excited to see the end product. Give it a go! "

April Pebble responded:

" It was a very relaxed atmosphere with you two so thanks for stopping in and I'm eager to see your decorations too! I will get them out in the post to you as soon as can be- April :)"

Imogen reviewed: Stained Glass Panel Workshop with April Pebble

"April was a fantastic facilitator, really kind and very knowledgeable. She was really engaged with the class and found the perfect balance between supporting us and leaving us to explore on our own. Such a cute workshop to host the class in. I would be keen to attend more of April’s classes. "

April Pebble responded:

" Ah thanks so much Imogen, it was super lovely having you pair in the workshop! It is always a joy to meet new people in the workshops, especially when they get on so well as you lot- I hope to see you again on another course :) "

Tracy Williams reviewed: Two hour Fused Glass Workshop with April Pebble

"What a great experience! Having never ever attempted glass fusion before, I really didn’t know what to expect. I knew what I wanted to make for a charity trip in the new year and I was over the moon that April had gone out of her way to get specific glass just for this! She’s warm, welcoming, patient and very knowledgeable! I highly recommend this experience! "
