My name is Amanda Winfield and I am passionate about glass! 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 Surrey. Dates and availabilty online HERE.

Kirstie's Homemade Home
In 2009 I took part in Episode 2 of the first series of Kirstie's Homemade Home for Channel 4. In the programme Kirstie Allsopp transforms her dilapidated house in Devon and along the way tries her hand at some traditional crafts. In my workshop here in Abinger Hammer, Kirstie designed and made a stained glass panel much like you can make on my one day stained glass course.

In 2010 I was thrilled to be asked back to make a window for Gemma and Shaun with the help of Kirstie Allsopp, for the Episode 1 of the second series of Kirstie's Homemade Home. This time we made a front door panel inspired by the stained glass already within their property.

The Daylight Project
I recently wrote a article for The Daylight Project about stained glass which can be found HERE.

Peacock Inspired
My customers came to me with a little sketch idea of the front door panel they wanted to create.
The Magic Carpet
Having seen around their home and taken note of the kind of things they liked I came up with idea of a Magic Carpet.
A Patchwork Scheme
With the addition of the transom panel including the house number it has made this front entrance very cool!
Oak Tree
My customer wanted to depict their own oak tree in leaded glass.
What's happening at Abinger Stained Glass? - April/May 2015

I am working on some gorgeous projects at the moment. One is a feature window, 3 metres high, of a Provençal scene. Lavender fields and vineyards with a little farmhouse nestling in the valley. I have so enjoyed designing and making this and now want to live in this fantasy landscape!

I have also just finished leading two front door panels.
A very traditional style and they will transform my customers hall. (see right) The range of my projects keeps me on my toes as no two are the same.
Just the kind of daily work I love.

I have been designing a really excellent mixture of work lately, from painted Tudor roses to abstract stained glass based on the Fabian Window. Beautiful and elegant panels inspired by the work of Baille Scott and some diamond quarry windows with coloured glasses much like the windows in The Ivy restaurant.

Windows at "The Ivy" London

If you're thinking of commissioning some bespoke stained glass, I will be delighted to help. All my stained glass and leaded lights are made by hand, by me in my lovely workshop in The Surrey Hills and as you can see I am able to design and make in a wealth of styles. You are most welcome to visit but please phone first as I am sometimes out on site.

New courses will be available soon, I know there are lots of you waiting for new dates and I am working on them, honestly!

My new, bigger (yay), kiln is now up and working so after years of waiting I can now fire my larger projects here instead of carting them about in the car. I am very grateful for the help I have been given by one of my students who has kindly come to the rescue on several occasions which his big kiln. You know who you are!

Surrey Artists Open Studios is happening in June and I am taking part in Redhill again at Aileens studio. Do drop in if you have time.

Thanks for reading.....

My Workshop
I would like to introduce you to, My Workshop ! It has become obvious to me over the years that many of my students would love to carry on at home but just don't have the space. It can also be a bit of a hefty outlay on tools and equipment. This is why I am opening my doors to my students. It will be on an hourly basis and when you like! You might want to create for 2 hours a week or 10 and subject to other students and my workload we should be able to accommodate you. Of course this is a very busy little workshop so there will be a bit of shuffling about but I am positive this will work. I will store your projects for you in between times, you will have full use of a set of tools and if you like you can buy the materials from me for your project. I will be there to help and guide you through any little problems and glitches but in essence the space will be yours for the time booked! All you need to do is turn up and have fun! Email or phone me to find out availability and costs.
