This is an exciting “procedures and process” class filled with step-by-step instruction that teaches you how to use frit and powders in new and surprising ways. Be prepared to build on your Basic Fritography skills or add them to your skillset because Michael has an arsenal of tips, tricks and tools to share with you.

You will be designing and creating components Michael calls “Frit Sticks” and “Vitrios.” You will be making unusually shaped panels using his specialized dam methods. And he is also promising to teach his newly developed “Scratch and Frit” process with you as well. This class event promises to be fun, fact-filled and customized to your level of interest and experience.
Uroboros is again proud to host Michael's class offering each participant a personalized factory tour and class access to every color and frit size we make. Join us to experience the ambience of being in a working glass factory and take advantage of Special Event Shopping in our racks.
