HI , I'm Bonnie Brooksbank the owner of The Purple Stained Glass Studio.
The Purple Stained Glass Studio is based at Dishley Grange Farm on the outskirts of Loughborough, Leicestershire.
My work involves all aspects of stained glass and leaded lights. Including repairs and re-leads, traditional glass painting, new commissions, triple glazing existing leaded lights to fit into new frames, glass fusing, copper foiling and running workshops teaching all of these techniques.
As a glass artist I have worked on all kinds of projects from making jewellery to restoring church windows, to creating new work for different situations.
I’ve always had a fascination with glass and have developed my abilities over the last 10 years using the still very traditional techniques required to restore or create beautiful pieces of artwork. I also use more modern glass fusing in my work.
I revel in anything from developing original contemporary designs to methodically restoring church windows.
