An exhibition of textile art by Cary Leech and baskets  by Jeanette Carter and glass by Jenie Yolland  

25th October to 25th November 2019

These 3 friends met at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre and have decided to pool their talents for this exhibition

Carly Leech


Carly has been working in textiles for 27 years, starting as a weaver and silk painter.

Carly changed her style once she became interested in drawing with a sewing machine or free motion machine embroidery and wanting to explore 3D forms. The garden bowls were developed over a 2 year period. Working out the best sewing methods and flower stitching to the right stiffener.

A lot of Carly’s work is inspired by nature, colour and texture and mixing her different techniques together.

Carly has been involved in previous exhibitions in the Bolin Bolin Gallery – Renewal in 2018 and Triple stitch in 2016. Find out more about

Jeanette Carter

Jeni Yolland

Jenie Yolland designs are directly inspired by nature soaring clouds, heart-warming sunsets, glistening raindrops on gum leaves, even a macro photograph of chlorophyll cells.

Jenie loves the interplay of contrasts; enlivening the final result with splashes of sparkling dichroic glass that sparkles and reflects sunlight in the most magical way.

Beginning with a passion for watercolour painting, Jenie Yolland has been working with kiln-formed glass for over 20 years and her glass is also exported all over the world. She is exhibited and collected widely.
