STAINED GLASS DESIGN AND CREATION Susan Bradbury, stained glass artist and conservator Thursday 13 December 2018

Susan Bradbury is a stained glass artist working from a studio in a converted church in Ayrshire. She came to Scotland in 1980 to be Town Artist to Irvine. This was to be a two-year contract with the Scottish Arts Council but, although her work has been all over the UK, she settled happily on the west coast of Scotland.

Susan has had commissions for a wide range of clients. The largest window she has made is larger than a tennis court but the smallest is only 150mm square. She will address issues such as designing for the surrounding architecture and working for the recently bereaved. Her talk will be profusely illustrated and will include stained glass made for a range of clients including Marks and Spencer, Durham County Cricket Club and the RAF, as well as many churches and a couple of synagogues.
