Uses the colours of the surrounding Surrey Hills countryside to inspire decorative glass pieces.
My name is Amanda Winfield and I am passionate about glass!
At Abinger Stained Glass I use the colours of the surrounding Surrey Hills countryside to inspire my decorative glass pieces. I use traditional skills from medieval times, with new ideas and techniques.
I have worked professionally in stained and decorative glass since 1986. I was trained at a prestigious London studio by elder craftsmen, in all the traditional techniques which have changed little since medieval times. In 2001 I set up Abinger Stained Glass and have been exploring new ideas, techniques and finishes to combine with the old to add interest and depth into my work.
If you need advice on a new project in stained glass or with a restoration of stained glass, leaded panels or fused glass anywhere in the UK or Europe feel free to call me.
I offer fun and informative courses in stained glass, fused glass and copper foiling here at my workshop in the Surrey Hills.
The Tower of London
In 2014 I was honoured to be asked to make some leaded panels for The Tower of London. Following the refurbishment of the Chapel Royal of St Peter Ad Vincula within the grounds of the Tower there was a grand opening reception. I was thrilled to be invited to this event which was in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh and His royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent.
My windows are in the Crypt right next to the tomb of Sir Thomas Moore.
