VINTAGE GLASS STUDIO
Vintage Glass Studio has been in business for over 15years. The owners Elaine and Ian Lonsdale are dedicated to carrying on the centuries old tradition of stained glass. Elaine is responsible for overseeing the design aspects of any project and working with the customer on choosing colours as well as producing several impressions of the final product. Sometimes we simply copy an existing design as used , for example,in a neighbours house.
Ian is the craftsman who brings the designs to life as well as doing the fitting and any repair work. He also passes on his knowledge to students who attend his regular weekly evening class at what used to be Mid Cheshire College in Northwich and is now part of the Warrington & Vale Royal College.
We feel it is important that the customer has an input in the early stages of the design process. They provide us with a brief and then choose the design from a selection supplied by Elaine as well as choosing the colours/textures from over 200 glass samples of the stock held at the studio.
We generally operate within a 30 mile radius of Manchester and much of our work comes from personal recommendations so we thank our numerous customers for paying us that compliment.
These are just a few examples of Elaine's work produced at the design stage .
