Anne’s 5 star review after her art glass workshop

“I had a great time and learned a lot about working with glass from Jenie, who is a fabulous teacher. Her studio and the artwork in it is impressive. She was fun. We could even choose the music we wanted to listen to. Can’t wait to see how the cheeseboard I made will look like when it comes out of the kiln.”

Simone’s testimonial after her Cheese Board Workshop December 2022

“Jenie is a fabulous teacher who instantly puts you at ease and is very good at communicating the theory behind glass fusing.”

Marlene after her Heart Art Workshop

“It was a fantastic class both fun and educational. Jenie detailed the type of glass we were working with and how it would be fired once we were finished. We got to try cutting glass before we cut the real colours we wanted.  Believe me there is nothing more therapeutic than creating a heart in art glass!

I can’t wait to see how my glass heart turns out.

I definitely recommend this class to absolutely everyone.”

Michelle’s Review after her Heart Art Workshop

“Jenie is a wonderful teacher! She has a huge amount of knowledge that she’s willing to share. She is very generous with all the goodies in her well stocked glass studio. A fun, informative and inspiring time :)”

Shelley after private full day workshop September 2022.

“Amazing!  Everything about this 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.

Thanks Jenie.”

Mujeeb’s Review after Glass Plate-Making Workshop for Beginners

“All the things you wanted to know about glass art but felt too fragile to ask! Jenie outlines the theory and shows how to do the hands on stuff safely and effectively.

You can be creative with your own design or follow some guidelines and still be creative. And like all artistic endeavors, there are no wrong answers; just individual expression.  I’m giving this workshop  5 Stars!

What a great way to escape from your comfort zone!”

Alessandra’s Feedback

“I really enjoyed the glass plate making afternoon class.  Most particularly the design thinking kpart, 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!  Thanks.”

Karyn after the Alcohol Ink Workshop

“We had a great time working in Jenie’s studio.  Jenie introduced us to the materials and cutting skills needed for our workshop.  A wide variety of materials were available at our disposal and support with skills and ideas was given when needed.  The studio is a bright and a stimulating space.  This was my second time attending one of Jenie’s workshops.  I gifted this workshop to a friend as her Christmas present (so she could make her own present) and worked along side her to share the special time together.  I would recommend one of Jenie’s workshops, especially going with a friend.  Thanks Jenie!”

Rhonda’s Review after Plate Making Workshop for Beginners

“This was a great experience, enjoyed in friendly company.  Jenie took the time to explain to us the dynamic properties of glass so we’d understand our results.  She demonstrated cutting techniques in a careful and safe way.  What really excited me was the great range of dichroic glass pieces available to work with as we composed our creations.  I’ll definitely be attending more of Jenie’s classes, shes a great communicator and very generous with her assistance and encouragement. “

“I had a great time creating a slumped glass plate.  Jenie was great, giving us all the help and advice we needed.”  Neville.

Neville said this after the Life’s Colours Workshop

Janet came to my LIFE’S COLOURS workshop for absolute beginners and created this lovely blue piece of art glass.  Janet says of the workshop “I had so much fun and met interesting people at the workshop too.  I am going to make more pieces the possibilities are endless and I’m going to make something like this for all the adults in my family.  One of the things I like most about this is that I can create something to the tastes of my family and there’ll never be another one just like it.  Being in Jenie’s studio actually makes me really happy.  Thankyou Jenie very much.”

Janet came and made a piece for her son-in-law

“I had a great time creating a slumped glass plate.  Jenie was great, giving us all the help and advice we needed.”

Neville wrote this testimonial after the Life’s Colours Plate Making workshop for Absolute Beginners

“Fantastic introduction to working with glass.  The class was small 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! “

Janette wrote this testimonial after the Life’s Colours Workshop for Absolute Beginners.

“I learnt about he various properties of glass, how various firing times totally change the look of the piece, etc.  Jenie is very informative and nothing is too much trouble.  I look forward to doing another class with Jenie.”

Penny left a testimonial after the jewellery workshop

“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 other artists in residence on the day.  Can’t wait to see my end product and would love to do another class.  Its addictive!!!!”

Chris left a review after the Colourful Artglass Plate Workshop I call Life’s Colours

“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 adictive.  Twitch, Twitch.  My attendance was by virtue of a gift voucher.  Great idea.  Lunch was fabulous.  The company including other artists ws 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!”

Faye left a review after attending the Colourful Art Glass Plate Workshop for Absolute Beginners I call this Life’s Colours

“Jenie is great very welcoming and friendly.  The class was interesting and even for participants with no glass experience it ws simple to work out what to do.  Jenie has lots of “here’s one I prepared earlier” pieces so participants can see the type of effects possible when working with glass as a medium.  Can’t wait to see the finished pieces.  I enjoyed the experience and would liek to go back to do another calls. Can highly recommend jenie and this class.”

Eliane left a review after the Jewellery Workshop

“I had such fun, learning how to make my beautifully coloured pieces of jewellery with Jenie Yolland.  I’m amazed at how my first attempts turned out, which is all due to Jenie’s teaching.  When wearing a pari of the earrings, I felt qite chuffed by the wonderful comments I received.  I’m hooked; so much so that I’ve booked another session so I can make more jewellery for Christmas gifts.”  (she wrote this in April.)

Jeannie left a review for Jewellery Class

“I thoroughly enjoyed learning in a relaxed atmosphere with Jenie willing to share her knowledge and ideas.  Was happy with my creations’ that somehow turned out to be wearable pendants! 🙂 “

Jennifer’s Testimonial after attending the Jewellery Class

“I had a lovely night creating my glass heart.  Jenie gave us a brief run down on glass cutting and how to work with glass, which was really interesting.  Then it was onto creative our pieces.  Lots of fun….and my finished heart is beautiful.  Can’t wait to hang it on my wall :)”.

Jo’s review after the Heart Art Workshop

What a great workshop – that was the best 4 hours I’ve spent and I thought it was going to be fun it was so much more fun even than that.    Annie, Blackburn North.

Workshop for Beginners called Life’s Colours

Best workshop!  See the heart I made, its hanging in my living room now everyone loves it almost as much as I loved making it.

I did the Life’s Colours first.  Here’s the piece I made that time.

I’m going to do another one of Jenie’s workshops.








Tina heart art workshop and Life’s Colors Workshop Testimonial

I had seen Jenie’s splat clocks and splat wall features in a gallery and needed something creative and special for a wedding we were going to in London.

Jenie created this 38cm wide splat in black and altered it from a flat wall unit to a 3 dimensional piece.   She packed it really well so that I could take it safely on board our flight to London.

The wedding gift was so well received I can’t thankyou enough.

As soon as the happy couple opened the Splat bowl they hung it on their wall and it is still there.  The shadows that are thrown from this piece of glass art are simply stunning.

I would work with Jenie again to create something special.  Thank you you made the whole process so easy and uncomplicated.  Thanks again Jenie Yolland.


I asked Jenie to create a vessel for me that incorporated brown and beige glass.  I wanted it to have lots of movement in the glass colours.  She made exactly what we wanted.  Thanks for your great packaging it arrived safely in BH in record time after you let me know you’d posted it.  Thanks.

Bert – Broken Hill, NSW

I purchased this fabulous dichroic 3Dimensional pendant for my mum for mothers day.  She loves it and thank you Jenie for packaging it so nicely in the little gold box.  Thanks again.  I’ll be in contact to get another pendant for her when its her birthday in September.


I saw these colours on a really tiny plate on Jenie’s website and just loved the colours so I asked her to make me a set of 4 coasters that are the same.  Since then she has made me 4 more coasters as well as another 4 tiny tiny bowls that match.  Each one matches the other even though they are all differnt.  The tiny bowls measure 8cms across.  I love the way Jenie always responds to her customers and creates what they want. Thanks Jenie.

Peggy P – Safety Beach

I saw this on Jenie’s website and just loved the colours, these unusual colours are my absolute favourites.  Its like a teal kind of green/blue.  I love my bracelet and wear it with all sorts of different colors.  thankyou.

Suzanne F

I saw this sculpture and knew i had to have it for the foyer of my business in Hong Kong.  I am going to add a light to the back of it and it’ll look really good.  Thankyou Jenie for packaging it so carefully so that I could carry it through in handluggage without worrying too much about it.  Thanks very much again.

Andrew – Hong Kong

I needed something special for my new apartment.  I needed something that would sit on the dining table which is central to the apartment, you can see it from everywhere including the outdoor entertaining area.

I saw this colorful platter on Jenie’s website and she made one in all the brightest colours she could.  I am so pleased with it.

Thanks for my art work I love it.

Sean C – Richmond

My niece loves anything to do with dogs and didn’t know what to give her for a special birthday.  Jenie created this artglass platter with little doggie paw prints on it.

Tiffany adores this plate and it has a special place in her house.

Jenie did a good job making the paw prints look so real for Tiffany.  Thanks a lot!

Nadine – Parkville

I asked Jenie to make me a special platter for my son’s girlfriend’s birthday present.

She created this beautiful piece that is absolutely gorgeous and it sits in pride of place in her new home.

Carla simply adores anything with a butterfly on it and Jenie handcut the butterfly and put it on sparkling iridized glass.  I was so pleased that she loved it so much.

I would ask Jenie again to create another piece.

Tanya – Park Orchards

Here is a picture of the white glass in my kitchen here in New York.  Thanks its perfect.

I am so pleased that I found you on the internet.  This piece is 15″ x 15″ and was really well packed.  It went from Melbourne in Australia to me here in New York.  It did take ages to unwrap and I was delighted when I eventually saw it all in one piece on my kitchen bench.  Here it is.  I would recommend using this shop whenever you want something unique for yourself or your friends.

Anna – New York,

I designed this piece of art glass especially for my Christmas table.  I love how the scarlet looks against the turquoise opaque glass.  I couldn’t be more pleased with how its turned out.  Jenie listened to my needs and has come up with a lovely piece for me.  I’ll def be back to create more bespoke items with her.  Thanks agan Jenie.

I designed my own dessert plates that would show off the desserts that I create.

Jenie created samplers and we altered the design a few times before I was totally happy with the finished pieces.  They look stunning on my dining table.

I cannot recommend Jenie highly enough to make something special for entertaining our clients in our newly design home.

Thank you to JensStudio for this beautiful platter.

I looks really lovely being designed to sit on the side table in my lounge room.

The platter is absolutely lovely. Just what I ordered. It sits on my sideboard and looks great. Thanks Jenie.


“Beautifully made, well packaged and very good correspondence with Jenie. An unexpected, free gift also enclosed which is a very nice touch.”


Absolutely amazing! Exactly what I was looking for – thank you so much! 🙂


Gorgeous bangle and the sparkle wattage is high with this colorful creation. Love that it adds just the perfect amount of bright color to an outfit.

The interactions with the artist were warm and friendly and the package arrived from Australia to Chicago within a few days of purchase. I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend this seller.
