For many, there's no better way to learn a new skill than to see in performed in person, with the chance to try it for yourself, speak directly to the expert, and get instant feedback. When you attend a class, workshop, or retreat, you have the opportunity to do just that. You'll also be surrounded by others who share your passion. It's the perfect place to make new connections and recharge your creative energies.
You can learn about polymer clay classes, workshops, and retreats in a number of ways. Some of your local craft supply shops may host classes, for instance. If there's a polymer clay guild in your area, that's another great place to attend live demos and learn about upcoming classes in your region. Classes and workshops are frequently advertised online in polymer clay message boards and mailing lists, not to mention the polymer clay magazine, Polymer Café.
There are also websites that act as bulletin boards for notices about polymer clay events. See the links below for listings of upcoming classes, workshops, retreats, and more!
