Julia Taroni – Handmade by Joolz

Welcome to Handmade by Joolz! I’m Julia, and I’m all about crafting stained glass pieces that will steal your heart.

My creations are more than just decorations – they’re a fusion of my love for stained glass and textiles that radiate warmth and comfort in your home.

Working with glass is my happy place, and I’m always exploring new techniques to add a unique touch to my work. I enjoy experimenting with found objects and wire embellishments to create 3D pieces that push the boundaries of traditional stained glass.

If you’re looking to learn the art of stained glass, I offer beginner’s workshops that are perfect for groups of four. Book a session through my website¬†or get in touch to schedule a bespoke experience.

Come and see me in action at PAOS and discover the magic of stained glass. Let’s create something beautiful together!

Hello there,

I would like to introduce myself as an artist who has a great passion for creating unique and personalized items. From a very young age, I have always loved making things out of basic materials, which sparked my interest in knitting and textile design. Although drawing was not my forte, I learned a lot about colour, tones, and blending from my grandfather who was a fantastic artist.

I excelled in product design during my school years, and I won a Roundtable award for my hotel design, which was exhibited at the East of England showground. Although I initially wanted to pursue a career in medicinal chemistry, I later decided to take an Art foundation course, which is where my love for textile design blossomed.

Despite not being able to find a job directly in the industry after graduation, I never lost my love for arts and crafts. I began teaching others to knit and crochet while designing and producing handmade wedding stationery and greeting cards. However, it wasn’t until I took a stained glass beginners course at my local adult education college that I discovered my true passion and I have worked as a stained glass artist ever since.

I am grateful to be able to work in a job that I look forward to every day. It gives me immense joy to create personalized items that are unique to each person’s request. If you have any unique and bizarre requests for designs, I am always up for the challenge, and I can usually figure out a way to design most things.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little more about me!
