Ingrid Walker trained at the Bristol School of Art and set up Pyramid Stained Glass in 2003. She has been in her current studio since 2009 where she runs workshops. Ingrid also teaches her craft at a number venues including the Rural Skills Centre, Cowbridge Old Halls, Giles Gallery, the Heritage Coast Centre and at the Coastal Community Arts Festival. Ingrid’s work has featured in exhibitions including St Donat’s Art Centre, Old Halls, Cowbridge and Bristol School of Art.
Ingrid works out of her studio based at her home in Southerndown, in the Vale of Glamorgan which is part of the beautiful and inspiring South Wales Vale Heritage Coast. Ingrid draws her inspiration from the countryside around her and the people and wildlife of Wales. Much of her work involves incorporating local materials such as driftwood and flowers into stained glass pieces and in 2017 she was chosen to design and make the trophies for Arts and Business Cymru Annual Awards Evening held at the Millenium Centre, Cardiff.
When running courses Ingrid will often get her students to join her on a walk around the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and sketch or photograph aspects of rural and coastal life that will then be the basis of stained glass windows and panels.
