Welcome to Abinger Stained Glass

My name is Amanda Winfield and my passion is to create beautiful stained glass for your home, business or place of worship. I combine innovative design with beautiful glass and fused glass techniques to create truly unique stained glass and leaded lights. I am practicing the traditional medieval stained glass traditions using tools little changed since that time and now I can encapsulate your stained glass to meet with latest building regulations. My workshop is based in Abinger Hammer in the beautiful AONB The Surrey Hills but I carry out work all over the country. I am a member of Surrey Hills Enterprises and have been awarded the Surrey Hills Trademark.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Covid-19 update

I am still taking orders, designing and actually my clients have been loving my regular WhatsApp videos showing how I make your glass. An initial FaceTime chat and a ‘visit’ around my workshop has also worked very well. I have posted out glass samples and chatted in depth about upcoming and ongoing projects. I am not letting coronavirus get in the way of making stained glass!

Sadly, however, this isn’t the case with my classes. It’s been such a hard decision to make but I feel I cannot safely run any classes this year. The very  nature of my courses is that they are fun, and relaxed days. We laugh, eat cake and biscuits, drink tea and make beautiful stained glass. With potentially 5 households mixing I cannot guarantee anyones safety at the moment. I am missing you all so much but hopefully it will only be another few months. I am optimistic that after the winter 2020 flu season has passed I can open up my classes again. I have many students already booked in and so those already with places will be first and I will not advertise new classes until all those already booked have dates. If you want to be added to my 2021 waiting list, drop me a line.

Thanks so much for your patience and do get in touch if you’re thinking of having some stained glass to brighten your home.
