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 steps to designing a quality mosaic should be taken seriously. These classes are developed to foster knowledge, skill, and style. It is my goal to mold you into a fearless creative mind, creating from your materials. I will provide you with rules, tips and tricks that will increase your cutting skills, design skills, and give you steps to create a quality one-of-a-kind stained glass mosaic. I have been specializing in glass on glass mosaics for 20 years, through trial and error, I have developed a process that will assist you in understanding how to design a glass on glass mosaic that looks good at night without light and good during the day with light. We will discuss balance, color theory, physics of glass and why it breaks the way it does. I will teach you to use my rules as a guideline to foster your personal creativity, they, and you are welcome to break them. It is important we have fun and release stress, not create it. Don’t over think the process. It is essential to train you to use your creative side to cultivate “artistic freedom without self-doubt.” Think back to when you were a child; you created for expression, not to please others. The more you produce, the better you get. When you do something all the time you become good at it. Practice is how you get better. Another process we will discuss in depth is pre-cut and cut to fit glass, randomization, and the direct method. We will practice cutting glass because the more you cut the better you get.  I will teach you process; the progression is what will make you quicker and confident to commit to your design and cuts. The act of doing will develop confidence in cutting ad sharpen your skills and self-assurance. In my classes your mosaic is your world…you are the artist; I encourage you to take my suggestions and tips but use your instincts to develop your piece.

I will encourage you to create with passion, strive for originality, make your own rules and break them! Have you ever herd of the saying, if you don’t use it you lose it? Practice makes perfect! Now let’s learn some rules, cutting techniques, and tips and tricks to promote your creativity. The objective is for you to design a one-of-a-kind design, a lifetime piece of art. I want you to gain the confidence in the design aspect, understand how to create good art. The three-step method I have created will assist you in doing just that. Understand how to break your design into layers, specific cuts, and control the directional flow. We will discuss the best way to select your glass using the opacity rules created specifically for glass on glass. Technique and style will be addressed. I will encourage you to use my process and commit to your design quickly. Grouting and glue tips will be addressed in this workshop.

We will discuss a unique strip cutting approach to break down the glass and maximize your waste. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand how to organize your mosaic from start to finish, breaking down each section into a layer of elements. Specific topics will include color theory and her NEWLY developed opacity rules. Kory will demonstrate several cutting techniques, including her signature one-cut-sliver cut and a glass shaving cutting style.

This is a theme based class and we all will be working on a one-of-a-kind piece, using technique and style specific to Kory’s Style. There will be a variety of color choices available for the blossoms. You will receive an email detailing the syllabus for the class one week prior to class.  The variety and colors of glass available may vary, but pre-cut color mixes will be available in a wide variety. All supplies will be included in the cost, but you are welcome to bring small unique items to be placed in the piece, like jewelry or small stones to personalize your mosaic.

New, outdoor, ready to hang frames will be available, starting at $25 upgrade fee and sizes well vary.

Class will include a tour of Bedrock Industries! Check out their Facebook page

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.”

** Disclaimer** We do work late, we do have a lot of fun, plan on a late night Friday and Saturday, if you want to finish. This is not a craft project, we are working hard, cutting glass, and creating EPIC art.
