Glass on Glass Mosaic Workshop
November 19-20 in Sacramento, CA

I have some exciting news! I will be teaching in Sacramento, California. I will bring an exciting twist to teaching GOG. Students will learn my NEWLY designed Three Step Fabrication Method®  to simplify the steps in creating a  Freestyle Flower Garden ®. We will discuss my strip cutting approach to breaking down the glass to patternize flowers. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand how to organize your mosaic from start to finish. I do not strive for perfection; “the art of art is the imperfections.”  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. It is a great opportunity to use Mac Glue!

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

The two day workshop 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. The students will up-cycle a cupboard door into a beautiful stained glass mosaic sun-catcher. Students will learn Kory’s Three Step Fabrication Method® to effectively and efficiently construct a Freestyle Flower Garden ® 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 at 2 pm 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 2 pm then a grout package will be available to take home for optional grouting.
