During this process, you will learn how cut strips to patternize your glass into flowers while maximizing your glass.

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.

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.”

I have some exciting news! I will be coming back to Tahoe! I will be teaching a stained glass mosaic class right on Lake Tahoe! The venue is located on the North Shore is an exceptional facility that includes a dramatic view of the sandy beaches, majestic mountains, and a crystal clear lake. The Beachfront view 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!

I look forward to meeting some new faces! See you in Lake Tahoe.
