Hilary Ruxton

Always a Maker and Blue Sky Thinker, arriving later in life to stained glass following a career in Primary School Teaching in the UK & overseas. I am continually inspired by the natural world and travel and now embracing a wholehearted commitment to Stained Glass with a focus to passing the skills on. It is such an exciting and creative space to be continuusly learning and challenegd - putting a modern twist on medieval techniques - always experimenting with inclusions, bubbles and textures.
