Layl's Silly Milly Art

Clay Parties

Layl will come to you or you can party at Clay Squared (With Layl, Niky or Chandra!).  

Fees are $175 for 2 hours and $5 per person for supplies with a minimum of 5 people. Contact Layl for fees outside a 30 mile radias of Clay Squared.

A basic party starts with learning how to make two or three millefiori canes. Then Layl pulls out the "Stuff to Cover" bin and everyone can make a pen, switch plate, utensil, frame or other object. Plus dig into Layl's scrap pile for Silly Milly Accents.

Or have a specific theme. There are lots of projects to choose from or make up your own theme- Anything is possible!

Contact Layl at layl@claysquared.com    We have three teachers that can teach clay parties now so that means more times available - especially for parties that take place at Clay Squared.
