3 day breakdown
The three day retreat will be a combination of lecture/slideshow, discussion, Q&A, demos, and hands-on instruction. Focusing 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 to cut glass 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 cuts. Additional topics covered include: precision cutting, committing to a design, selecting a color pallet, varying opacity, and creating one-of-a-kind designs. Kory will discuss grout bleed, adhesives, grout additives, and provide tips and tricks to grouting. Mac glue will be provided.
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.
