Established in 1974, the Geoffrey Wallace Stained Glass Studio has become nationally and internationally renowned in the field of stained glass conservation and as one of Australia’s foremost creators of new stained glass windows.  As founding director and principal of the studio, Geoffrey is well supported by a team of highly skilled and very experienced artisans, trained under his personal direction in both traditional and cutting edge stained glass techniques. 

In addition to his personal direction, the staff also undertake training and professional development with international stained glass and conservation specialists to ensure that they also become masters of the many esoteric and specialised skills required to create and maintain our stained glass heritage.

Geoffrey is also in demand as a stained glass consultant and contributes to national and international journals, gives lectures and presentations on different aspects of the art and was keynote speaker at the American Glass Guild conference in Albany, New York in 2006 and Philadelphia in 2008.
