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?

This is the 3rd time I have been to this workshop and I absolutely love it. The last time I went I took 2 friends with me who tried a new activity and we made 6 pendants each, had lunch out for a lovely girls day out. I can wait until my next workshop, maybe I will try making a glass platter or some wall art. Jenie Yolland is a warm and welcoming artist who is knowledgeable and so passionate about sharing her skills with her students. Thank you so much Jenie. Kindest Regards, Marina Riddiford
