"I had an amazing make and do session with Ali at one of her terrarium workshops, not only was it great crack but also I learned so much AND got to bring home an actual terrarium I made myself (with a ton of hope from our teacher). It's a great way to spend an afternoon, can't recommend it enough. Now am working out what else I can make with WildBird"
Designer, Maker and Educator for a New Stained Glass Generation.
Welcome to WildBird, a stained glass studio like no other.
Glass is alchemy, art, attitude. Clear and coloured. Smooth and sparkling. Raw and reflective.
At WildBird I craft stained glass for a new generation, drawing on nature, art, history and light. I am a designer, a maker, an educator.
Bespoke panels. Geometric terrariums. Victorian botanical frames. Minimalist lighting. Vibrant jewellery: Choose your favourite piece. Gift a friend. Join a workshop.
Glass is fun, fragile, fascinating. Let me share its beauty with you.
Come and join the stained glass renaissance.

Environmental respect is at the heart of all I do at WildBird. I don’t just draw on nature for inspiration, I depend on her for all of the elements I use in my work – minerals, earth, fire, flowers. That’s why I’ve teamed up with CarbonClick to help me on my green journey.

"As a first timer I wasn't sure what to expect but Alison explains and demos everything in great detail. The class size is small so you get plenty of one on one time. Although it might look complicated Alison breaks the process down into easy parts and everyone leaves the class with a fantastic handmade piece.
I had such a great time at my first class that I then signed up for 3 other workshops. She runs great classes, has amazing skills and I can't wait for my next session in her studio."
"I have a lot of Alison's designs , from her jewellery ranges to her homewares, and commissioned pieces too. I just love her style of products and she's always someone I go to for gifts too. Her customer service is excellent , she's great to deal with , and I'm looking forward to peaking into her world when I do a glass panel course with her this month"
