Polymer Clay Classes, Events, and Workshops

A listing of polymer clay events, classes, workshops. While it’s great to learn from books and tutorials, many feel that the best way to learn is directly from a teacher at a polymer clay class. It’s certainly a lot of fun! Here’s a directory of polymer clay classes, events, and workshops. These classes often fill to capacity with the sponsoring group’s members, so if a class is open to the public it’s a good idea to register right away.

Because it’s common for people to travel (even internationally!) to these events, planning usually takes place far in advance of a polymer clay class or event.
