Mokume Gane Pens

Learn the technique of mokume gane in polymer clay! This technique is based on ancient Japanese metal-working methods. You will make a striped slab, then "beat it" with texture tools, and then slice off thin layers of amazing designs that can resemble wood-grain or craters of the moon. We'll use these to cover 3 ink pens to make unique gifts for yourself or others. Bake at home; instructions provided. $50 per person, can use Groupon.

Polymer Clay Theme Parties

Polymer Clay Classes

P-P-P-Party!

  • Birthday Parties!
  • Girl's Night Out!
  • Team Building!
  • Fun and Relaxing for ages 7 to 97!

A basic party starts with learning how to make two or three millefiori canes. Once the canes are crafted, Layl will reveal the "Stuff to Cover" bin and everyone can make a pen, switch plate, utensil, frame, or other object. You'll also have the opportunity to dig into Layl's art scrap pile for Silly Milly Accents. Choose from any number of projects or make up your own theme. With so many options available anything is possible!

We now have three artists who can teach clay parties so there are more time options available, especially for parties that take place at the Clay Squared to Infinity studio. We will come to you or you can party at the new Clay Squared to Infinity studio with artist/teachers Layl, Louise, or Chandra!

Fees

  • $175 / 2 Hour Class
  • $5 Supply fee / Person
  • Additional fees are required for off-site parties outside a 30 mile radius of Clay Squared. Contact Layl to arrange: layl@claysquared.com

It takes people to make a party and we need a minimum of 5 people to make a Polymer Clay Party.

 


Other Classes

Email layl@claysqaured.com with suggested dates if you have interest in taking any of these classes.

Note: We need at least 4 people to run a class.

Cruising Purple Petals400

Intermediate Millefiori Class

You will learn several simple techniques like the jellyroll, checkerboard, stripes, and bullseye. We will incorporate these techniques into more detailed designs to make flowers, stars, butterflies and more! I will supply the clay, pre-conditioned and pre-mixed, so we can learn a lot in one night. You will also learn some color mixing techniques and secrets. At the end of the class you’ll have beautiful canes to make into beads, buttons, magnets, or use to cover objects. No previous polymer clay experience needed but this class is a great step up from the intro class if you have already taken that.

Little Clayers Class

Got some little ones that want to play with clay?  This is your chance to introduce them to polymer clay- a clay that bakes in your oven- even more fun than play dough!  This class is designed for an adult to share the experience with one or more kids ages 3 1/2 to 7.  Have fun rolling and squishing and then add your clay to an object like a jar or a frame and bake it up in your own oven!  First group of two is $30; additional children are $20 each.
