This workshop is designed for Absolute Beginners.  You'll be able to explore a whole new skill while you nurture yourself in my Church Street studio in Richmond. 

You will experience the wonder of creating your own glass plate.  I will show you step by step, how you can make my fun multi-coloured stunning glass design I call “Life’s Colours”. 

You will work with a large palette of transparent sheet glass and you will create your own art glass platter.

Jenie Yolland

Vendor since 2016

I’m like a kid in a lolly shop.  I am endlessly impressed and inspired – by the work of others, by colours and textures, by everything around me, man-made and natural! 

There’s so much to see, to interpret into glass!

I love it all. I love sharing it with everyone – that’s why I run workshops – it makes me happy and its my hope that some of this joy spills over to you as well.

I love my job.

You too can create graphic Mondrian-inspired bowls and platters and feminist invoking “Break The Glass Ceiling” pendants, brooches and sometimes earrings in these workshops.  You can create an artwork for your walls in the fabulous Heart Art Class. 

I love the clash of sometimes crazy and sometimes controlled geometry, that can see in my Paris Elegance series with its DNA centre design element. I suspect they indulge both the conservative and bold characteristics within.  These styles can be explored more in the Level 2 classes.

The relationship between the glass elements in each piece means no two pieces are exactly alike, much as no story is ever retold in exactly the same way, so is every piece of glass you create in a workshop. You can truly say, no-one else, anywhere, has one quite like it!  You'll also remember that giving a Gift Voucher is another uniuqe gift that expresses the value of your unique friendship.

Ultimately, I am sharing love. The love of life. Share it with me?

22 November 2019 • Beginners Glass Plate Making Workshop

G'day, I really enjoyed the glass plate making afternoon class. Most particularly the design thinking part, that ended up putting me into a ruminating state which was great. Jenie was happy to answer any questions, and her instructions were clear. Very much looking forward to seeing the end result - figuring out how the firing process worked on my piece. Would like to do some more glass work - a great blend of the technical, design and colour! Erin

Amazing! Everything about Make a Plate "Life's Colours Workshop" is Amazing. I found this workshop a great introduction to working with glass. Jenie is an amazing teacher and her studio is pretty relaxed. I did not finish my piece in the given time but was kindly given the opportunity to come back and finish my piece. Super happy with the outcome of my amazing plate :)
