Instructor: Layl McDill

Ages: 8+

Cost: $40

“Once upon a time each of us was a little kid. Everything was nonsense. We wondered about everything. We wondered what was in the cupboard, the drawers, and boxes. For me making my art helps me keep this magical doorway to wonderment open.” -Layl McDill, artist

McDill operates Clay Squared to Infinity with her husband, artist Josh Blanc in Minneapolis. She has exhibited at the Austin ArtWorks Festival and her work is available for sale at the Austin ArtWorks Center.

McDill’s class will introduce techniques for sculpting polymer clay which can be baked in an ordinary oven to harden. McDill is known for creating millefiore canes from colored clay which is layered and stretched then sliced to reveal tiny images in the clay.
