This will be Jackie Birchall’s second Bucks Art Weeks, and she looks forward to welcoming visitors both old and new.
Have you ever seen a stained glass window and been captured by the colours as the light floods through? Jackie’s aim is to make this art form accessible to all those who want to recreate that colour rush.
Jackie has been creating stained glass for over twenty years. She began by attending evening classes in 1995 and the process rapidly became her passion. She learnt both lead work and copper foil techniques and after a couple of years of tuition began experimenting , drawn more and more to using copper foil instead of lead.
During Bucks Art Weeks if you visit her in Ormond Road, Thame, you will be able to see the whole process in action. Her studio will be open, giving you the chance to see her at work on new pieces. Over the last two decades her style has changed and now the art she creates is definitely a personal statement of who she is and what inspires her.
Her artwork is individual. It is also suitable for both inside and outside, and Jackie will have some of her beautiful finished pieces on display both in the studio and outside in her ever evolving garden. There will definitely be something to make you smile and hopefully a few serious pieces for you to ponder. Come an be inspired.
Jackie is always willing to explore new ideas and she welcomes commissions, enjoying the process of making something bespoke. www.purpleurchin.online.
