April Pebble Owens

Tutor Profile


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 Bristol Folk House and Creative Space in Bedminster. 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. April now has a workshop in Shepton Mallet where she provides tutoring, undertaking of private glass commissions and making artworks for exhibitions.

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.
