What is awesome about the Scappoose Creek Inn? The space is amazing! The hosts are fantastic! The food is over the top! The supplies are abundant; Kory’s studio is just 15 min away. If you are an out of town guest this Retreat is the BEST location for you.
We encourage guests that are flying in to come the day before and stay a day extra. The workshop is an intense workshop, flying in and out on the same day as the retreat is very exhausting.
The Scappoose Creek Inn will accommodate extra nights and you will be subject to hotel rates. Private rooms must be booked for the entire event. The Inn is about 40 min from the PDX airport. Transportation can be arranged for $50 / fee per person to and from the airport.

Your Hosts Kory and Diane will fill your weekend with creativity, relaxation, and great food.
All supplies and materials will be provided. Lodging and meals are included in your package. We will have snack and refreshments available all weekend. There is so much planned!
The three day retreat 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 gardens, 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. 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. All projects must be glued by Saturday night if students want to grout. If projects are not completed a grout package will be available to take home for 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.”
