Do you want your guests to have a unique experience?

Marvelous Mosaic offers party packages for your special occasion. Are you looking for a creative experience with your children or family? 

What is a party package? Well, you give us a theme and we come with all the supplies and a design in mind and your guests can work on the mosaic. Then we take it home and grout it and bring it back for that special gift. Generally, this is addition to a party to keep the guests entertained while offering them a unique experience. You can invite them to bring special treasures to add into the mosaic. I am a photographer, so I take photos and give you a digital copy of the party. This package is available to all ages. You can select any theme and Kory will design and select the perfect colors of glass for your vibrant stained glass mosaic and in the end you get a one-of-a-kind piece of art made by your guests.

I do not strive for perfection; “the art of art is the imperfections.”  It is my goal that I will simplify the process enough to give you “artistic freedom without self doubt”. I strive to build confidence in these classes. I do not teach from a pattern, I teach to use your sketch as only a guideline; you are not restricted to the pattern. I will assist you in creating a balanced one-of-a-kind composition, using my uniquely designed simplified steps. We will focus on several unique cuts and I will provide you with tips and tricks that I use daily. It is a great opportunity to use Mac Glue!

What skills do you need to attend this workshop? This is a beginning to intermediate level class, where everyone is welcome, including children over 12 years of age. The class size will be limited to 10 students. We will cover basic cutting skills, the process of Glass on Glass mosaics, and give a grout lesson.
What do you need to bring? All tools and supplies will be provided for the class. It is recommended that you bring some unique pieces to add to your mosaic, making it one-or-a-kind. We ask you bring creative mind and a good attitude! Come with an idea NOT a pattern. I do not teach from patterns, we only use them as a guideline. With that in mind, we are not restricted to a pattern, it is okay to go outside the lines and let the glass create its own details. Think SIMPLE! For example; look around your house, do you have a color scheme or a theme you decorate in? We will have some examples and ideas for you.  It is a fast pace class, we will have to commit to a design early Saturday and have most of the piece finished by that evening. I will send out a reminder about design ideas a few weeks before the class, giving you some time to think about it and ask questions. Food is not provided, so we do a potluck style on Saturday and Sunday, Because of the location,  potluck works very well because then we can graze on food all day as we work.

 The three day workshop will be a combination of lecture/slideshow, discussion, Q&A, demos, and hands-on instruction. We will focus on Glass on Glass (GOG) application, using the direct method to create a stimulating optical effect. Kory will demo several unique cuts she uses in her roosters and sunflowers, using three tools, nippers, a scoring tool, and running pliers. During this process, you will learn how cut strips to patternize your glass into flowers while maximizing your glass. Kory will demonstrate and discuss a specific nipping style /technique, Glass Shaving® to create a crisp clean edge, using only wheeled nippers to cut the circles. The class will explore how to create movement, in the tail feathers suing long slender cuts.  Additional topics covered include: precision cutting, committing to a design, selecting a color pallet, varying opacity, Randomization Method®, balance and composition, creating a one-of-a-kind designs, and incorporating found and unusual items. Kory will discuss grout bleed, adhesives, grout additives, and provide tips and tricks to grouting. Mac glue will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring additional unique items such as broken jewelry, beads, and tesserae to embellish your mosaic.

There will be a grout demonstration on Sunday. Students are welcome to grout if they have completed the project and glue has dried. If projects are not completed, or dried by 12 pm then a grout package will be available to take home for optional grouting.

Kory notes that she does not strive for perfection; “the art of art is the imperfections.” She says, “It is my goal that I will simplify the process enough to give you ‘artistic freedom without self doubt’. I strive to build confidence in these classes. I do not teach from a pattern, I teach to use your sketch as only a guideline; you are not restricted to the pattern. I will assist you in creating a balanced one-of-a-kind composition, using my uniquely designed simplified steps. We will focus on several unique cuts and I will provide you with tips and tricks that I use daily.”

The goal on Sunday is to have projects ready to be grouted by noon. Grout time is scheduled outside at 2 pm. We will need time for your projects to dry. If you are unable to complete the mosaic in time to grout we will send grouting instructions and a  grouting kit can be sent home.
