Where it all started

A little about us… 

Well it all started in 1978 selling foil and off cuts of glass from a cardboard box in Covent Garden. We were the instigators in the Stained Glass hobbyist boom in the early 80’s. Little did we know that nearly 50 years down the line that we would still be one of the main Stained Glass suppliers in the UK. Over the years we have introduced many of the revolutionary tools and aids you’ll see on this website, and we’re still at the cutting edge, pushing the boundaries. 

We are a family run business that has grown from humble beginnings so we know how important customer service is. We know what tools you need and what advice is worthwhile, we won’t fob you off with any useless information. 

Now based in the tranquil surroundings of Bedford Priory Marina we welcome you to explore our showroom. Packed full of different glasses, tools and materials it can be a bit overwhelming at first. The showroom is packed with finished projects to give you ideas and inspiration. Lamps, panels, boxes, mirrors and sun catchers… we could go on and on. Everything is available for you to browse at your leisure, have a go on the grinders and try out any of the tools… all you have to do is ask.

There’s usually work in progress in the studio which you are welcome to view… Feel free to ask any questions. Whether you are a beginner or maybe a bit further down the line, we should be able to help you become a better crafter. 

We look forward to seeing you!
