The Art of Glass stained-glass shop in Kenilworth Station is set to move premises. But while the owners are off to a new location, they’ve lost nothing of the passion and drive that made them start the business 27 years ago in the old Post Office building, finds Lyn Staples, of Norgarb Properties.
There’s something magical, even mysterious about the Art of Glass shop, which wouldn’t look out of place in a Harry Potter movie set. It’s got history – and it shows. It’s old and unkempt – yet the paint peeling from the walls, the cracks in the ceiling and the chipped floors do not detract from the beautifully crafted stained-glass pieces that have been painstakingly put together by two sisters who have mastered a centuries old skill.
While there are many happy memories here, Priscilla Ormond and Colleen Peacock are keen to expand their business, hence the need to move. They are sad to leave their Kenilworth base as it has a lifetime of memories. I am keen to find our more about why they have reached this decision…
