Hours of class:

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, where you will start with custom framed window, approx 12"x12". She will then show you how to transform that into a gorgeous work of art. If you'd like to do something larger, Kory will bring additional frames to choose from, at an additional cost.
Students will learn her Three Step Fabrication Method® to simplify the steps in creating a Blossoms & Branches. 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.
