Maker's bio

I am a glass artist who's been designing and creating bespoke contemporary stained glass commissions since 1998. I love to create glass pieces that are pulled in from the things around me that inspire me in life. I would love to help you create your own glass piece of your choice to take home with you at the end of our workshop together. We occasionally have other dates/times available so do get in touch! Many thanks Ruth x

Hilary Colegrave reviewed: One Day Stained Glass Workshop - 121 or 'you and a friend'

"What an enjoyable day! So happy to have signed up for this 1:2:1 stained glass making workshop with Ruth Summers, in her perfect studio. Ruth let me do as much or as little as I wanted and I was relieved to have her take over on the really difficult bits, only when I asked! I have now been inspired to start my own stained glass journey. Thank you Ruth."

Eve reviewed: Taster (3hr) Stained Glass Workshop - 121 or 'you and a friend'

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson with Ruth – the 3 hour taster 1-2-1 workshop. It was so interesting and such fun that time flew by. The session was very easy going and at each stage of the process everything was well explained and demonstrated. I learnt lots and had fun along the way. Ruth is patient and explains everything so well and gives you the confidence and encouragement to do well. Her pace is spot on and the facilities are excellent. I enjoyed the course so much I have booked my next session, a full day 1-2-1! I have sent her my next design so that Ruth can design and have the pattern ready and I’m look forward to creating my next challenge to see how far I can stretch myself and have fun and confidence along the way."

Blue Skies Glass Studio responded:

" thank you so much for your lovely review Eve, it was such a pleasure to have you here and very much looking forward to seeing your next glass project come to life at our full day workshop!"

Diane and Martyn reviewed: Taster (3hr) Stained Glass Workshop - 121 or 'you and a friend'

"Thank you so much Ruth for a perfectly relaxed 3 hour 1-1 glass art starter session that I purchased for my partner. He really enjoyed it, and was very impressed with the tulip you helped him to create which is now hanging on our tree. I also enjoyed sitting in your garden (having a little peak occasionally!) and kept company by your lovely dogs Luna and Willow - particularly little, lively Luna! Thank you also for the regular offer of drinks which was very much appreciated. The whole 3 hours was neither rushed or stressful - you are a lovely person to be taught by. Having already purchased a starter kit, Martyn is now thinking about his next project! Thank you once again, Diane and Martyn x"

Blue Skies Glass Studio responded:

" Thank you for your lovely review, it was lovely to have you both here whilst Martyn was creating his rather stunning tulip! I'm excited to see what other creations he will be making going forwards, many thanks x"

Marianne Kennedy reviewed: Taster (3hr) Stained Glass Workshop - 121 or 'you and a friend'

"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."

Blue Skies Glass Studio responded:

" 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"
