Polymer Clay Guilds

A listing of polymer clay guilds, worldwide.Have you considered joining a polymer clay guild? There’s something special about getting together with others who enjoy this unique medium. It’s like we’re automatically part of a secret club and we all know the secret handshake before we walk in. You’ll be warmly greeted, openly accepted, and will immediately feel at home in a polymer clay guild. Below is a directory of polymer clay guilds around the world.

Is there no guild in your area? Start one! It doesn’t have to be anything formal. Some of the best polymer clay guilds are “unguilds” that just get together when they can to share ideas, tools, techniques, and camaraderie. If you do start a new guild, please list it here!

4 thoughts on “Polymer Clay Guilds”

  1. How do I start a guild in NW Florida (Okaloosa Co.)? What is expected? I would love to meet other clayers and share ideas.

    1. Guilds can be anything you’d like for them to be. It’s up to the people involved. Some people like to have loose groups with few expectations, others like to create structured organizations with officers. I’d think the first step is finding others who would like to join you then meet and decide from there. You might want to post in some Facebook groups to ask for clayers in your area.
