The Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild exists to share the experience of learning about polymer clay and to explore its possibilities.
And, you know what, we just like to play with clay!!!
We are a group of polymer clay enthusiasts, with varied backgrounds and skill levels. We meet to share ideas, techniques and to encourage and learn from each other. Our first meeting was in September, 1997 with 13 people and we've been growing ever since. We have members from Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey as well as all around Connecticut. You can see some of our work in the gallery.
We have the following sites reserved for our 2013 upcoming meetings:
Hagaman Memorial Library, 227 Main Street, East Haven and
