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.

Courses

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. See her scrapbok here. 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
See that episode here on 4OD - FF to 9:25 min.

The Hawthorns
This contemporary panel depicting part of a hawthorn.
Front Door Scheme
A total of 11 panels make up this whole scheme. I took my inspiration from a neighbours window and some that are still present within the property.
Moses Window
This window was commissioned by a parishioner to be a partner to an existing panel of Jesus as a baby.
Lillies
A bedroom window providing privacy without cutting down on too much light. It gets evening sun so that purple glass really glows. .
What's happening at Abinger Stained Glass? - This Month - April 2014

Welcome to Abinger Stained Glass and I hope you enjoy browsing through my website. If it's the first time you've dropped in, please take a look at my portfolio pages. They are divided into 4 separate areas and I hope one will have what you're looking for.

Its been a lovely start to spring and we even had the workshop windows and doors wide open during the last course on 29th March.

There are some places left on my courses up to mid October but if you're looking further ahead, just drop me a line and I will add you to my emailing list. We do some lovely Christmas courses.

At the moment I am working on a large round stained glass window with lots of painted detail (right). This is now drying waiting to be encapsulated into a sealed unit.

You can follow my day to day doings on both Twitter and Facebook if you like?

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.
 

Stained Glass Courses
Courses for Spring 2014 are now online. Courses through to the end of 2013 are all full. See list HERE. To add yourself to the emailing list for later courses in 2014 please send me an email and you will get a list of the dates before they go online!
