Airbnb Experience: Play with Clay in a Fanciful Studio

Sign up for a 1.5 hour class and studio tour with Airbnb Experiences. Layl will give you a tour of Clay Squared which is a working studio in two types of clay- Ceramic and Polymer clay. You'll be surrounded by Layl's sculptures and Josh's tiles. Then you'll learn a few easy techniques in polymer clay that even the non-artistic can pick up right away. You will need an Airbnb account to sign up.
Class is at Clay Squared to Infinity, 2505 NE Howard St. Minneapolis, MN 55418.

Flower For Intermediate Classs (1)

 

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 is 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.
