About the Vineyard
Three bedrooms plus game room with bunk beds. Great Kitchen. On a vineyard.
The Villa At Hopewell Hills Vineyard is such a wonderful location! Check out the vineyard.
Beautiful villa in the middle of a picturesque vineyard. Huge, fully equipped kitchen and large dining area are at the center of the fabulous floor plan. Large covered and open decks complete the comfortable living areas, and provide a spacious relaxing environment for your vacation.
Located right in the heart of the famous Eola/Amity AVA of Oregon Wine Country. Dozens of world class wineries and tasting rooms within a 15 mile radius. 20 minutes from downtown Salem and 20 minutes in the other direction to downtown McMinville, Dundee, Newburg, Carlton…all great Willamette Valley wine tasting destinations.
The perimeter of the vineyard is walk-able and is great for a moderately hilly, just over a mile long walk around the 19 acres of vineyards.
Your Hosts Kory and Ann 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 studio will be open till 10 pm. each night.
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 flowers, 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® and c-cut. 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.”
