Beginners Level 1 - Lifes Colours Workshop - make a glass plate


Explore a whole new skill while you nurture yourself in my Appleton Street studio in Richmond.

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

During the 3 ½ hours you will produce your own 25x25cm glass work which will be fired up to 3 times after your workshop. Your plate will be available for pick-up from the studio, 14 days after your class.

You will also enjoy a smorgasbord meal that we share in the Artists' Dining Room, this is included in the price of the workshop).

Better still - book in with your friends and you will have the studio to yourselves for a fabulous event. Imagine the fun you'll have.

When friends come together, you both get a discount at the checkout, off the total cost of the workshop!  What a fun thing to do with you best friends.  This is the perfect birthday event!

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, manmade 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? jenieyolland.

Fantastic introduction to working with glass. The class was small (3 people) and Jenie was such a great teacher and could spend as much or as little time as you needed helping you with the plate design. We had a yummy lunch with another artist. Totally loved it and will be back for more classes with Jenie!

This was an extremely worthwhile experience, fun, different and creative. Jenie's instruction was clear and concise without being overly instructional. With all the available choices and possibilities, making decisions was mildly traumatic. I think I rocked in the corner in the foetal position for a short while but eventually made a decision and forged on. I see that this activity could very easily become addictive. Twitch, twitch. My attendance was by virtue of a gift voucher. Great idea. Lunch was fabulous. The company including other artists was interesting and enjoyable as was the chance to see their work. This course is a great gift and is the chance to create something truly unique and quirky. Great value!

Lovely relaxed class in an environment encompassing creativity. Jenie's explanation of the glass process was easy to understand and demonstrates her years of experience too. Jenie's advice and suggestions throughout the class were purely from the structural perspective and did not interfere with individual styles, which is always appreciated. Great lunch too, shared with the other artists in residence on the day. Can't wait to see my end product and would love to do another class. It's addictive!!!!
