I have some exciting news! I will be coming back to Tahoe! The venue is located on the North Shore is an exceptional facility, sitting just steps away from the sandy beaches, majestic mountains, and a crystal clear lake. The Beachfront property will be a great inspirational setting to our mosaic workshop. There is a spectacular choice of fine dining, shopping, gambling, and cultural activities in the area, if you want to make a vacation of it. Bonnie will arrange a optional dinner on Saturday night at a local restaurant and we can get to know some of the new faces and get acquainted with some new students.
I will be teaching my glass on glass technique or GOG and we will be working cohesively to create a wave full of movement and texture. Our focus will be on color theory, long-curvy-skinny cuts, blending glass, and directional flow. Students will learn my Three Step Fabrication Method® to simplify the steps in creating a Glass on Glass (GOG) mosaic. We will discuss my strip cutting approach to breaking down the glass. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand how to organize your mosaic from start to finish.
It will be my goal that you will walk away understanding the entire GOG process from start to finish. I will encourage imperfections and in order to make the process feel less judging. It is my goal by the end of the class that you understand, “the art of art is the imperfections.” I plan on simplifying the process enough to give you “artistic freedom without self doubt” and the courage to create. 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!
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. The students create a finished beautiful stained glass mosaic sun-catcher. . Kory will demo several unique cuts she uses in her waves and sunsets, using three tools, nippers, a scoring tool, and running pliers. During this process, you will learn how cut strips to patternize your glass into layers while maximizing your glass. The class will explore how to create movement, using Kory’s signature cut, One-cut Sliver Cut®. Additional topics covered include: 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 2 pm then a grout package will be available to take home for optional grouting.
