I went to Purple Glass Studio for a one day fused glass course three years ago, and was so enthused that I have been going weekly (in term time) ever since!

Bonnie is so knowledgeable and keen to develop your skills. She enables you to learn, make mistakes and move on, all in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. I am particularly impressed with the way that Bonnie enables absolute beginners to produce fused glass pieces that they can be proud of, at lest 3 or 4 of them in a day - participants always leave with a smile on their faces, and many like me return again.

I would recommend the Purple Glass Studio to anyone who wants to learn the basics, or to develop their skills, not only in fused glass but in stained glass too. You will have a fantastic day or two, and leave with something to be very proud of!

Response from The Purple Stained Glass Studio:

Thank you so much Jo,
We love having you and seeing as you now have your own studio and kiln, are hugely grateful you still come to class.
And I adore the trees you have just brought in!


When my family bought me a course in stained glass making I didn't expect it to change my life! Bonnie, my one to one mentor, is passionate about her craft and enthusiastic about imparting that passion to anyone who enters her world of glass.
Bonnie has a personality that is warm and giving, important when you work closely with someone. If you get the chance to enter the Purple Glass World......DO IT.




I thought I would write to let you know how delighted we are with the encapsulated leaded light window you made for us recently. The leaded window detail has been restored to its original splendour and has been worth every penny. It looks great.

Once again , many thanks.



"Dear Ms Brooksbank,

Just a note to say a big thankyou for the superb job you made of our 1938 leaded lites - now back in their rightful positions courtesy of Mick Tuckey. We love them and they have been much admired by our friends and neighbours."

"Hi Bonnie

I really did have a great time with both you and Claire, you are very patient and explain things clearly in simple terms (just like me)."
