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 do have other dates/times available so do get in touch!

Diane and Martyn reviewed: Stained Glass Taster (3hr) Workshop - 1:2:1

"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"

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

"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."

Veronica reviewed: One Day Stained Glass Workshop - 1:2:1

"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."

Blue Skies Glass Studio responded:

" 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 Ruth"
