Create a breathtaking glass-on-glass mosaic masterpiece! No experience required! Everything will be provided for you. This is a 2.5 day workshop, with Kory Dollar of Marvelous Mosaic Fine Art.
Beginning students will start with custom framed window of your choice: 12"x12", 12"x15", 11"x15 landscape or 11"x15" portrait. Kory will then show you how to transform that into a gorgeous work of art. You'll also have your choice of theme: flower garden, mandala, blossoms and branches, wave, OR sunsets and silhouettes.
Returning students will have additional frame options (for a fee) and more leeway in their choice of designs.
Students will learn her Three Step Fabrication Method® to simplify the steps in creating the design of your choice! 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.
