PCA 2017 – it’s Year 3 

PCA opens January 1 with 24 classes on-demand to watch any time, as many times as you like.

The community activities continue through Dec 31.

You can sign up any time during the year and get all the classes and community.

It’s a Celebration of Art

Designed for polymer clay and mixed media enthusiasts at all skill levels – beginner and beyond.

On the surface-

It’s about learning new techniques and projects in polymer clay, and adding mixed media & jewelry making to spice things up.

But really-

It’s about connection, community, and honoring the creativity in all of us.

It’s designed for people who love to create and meet kindred spirits, and want to immerse themselves in unlimited learning  without breaking the bank or leaving family and work obligations behind.

Because Your Art Matters

Make this the year you develop your skills!

PCA is a collaborative curated grouping of classes you can’t find anywhere else on the web.

Projects are selected carefully so you will learn a variety of techniques from a group of talented artists and teachers, each with her own style and way of working with clay.

  • Want to learn how to create pieces of art, decor, jewelry, gift items, and more?
  • Want to grow in an encouraging private forum with like-minded learners who love to share?
  • Want to really connect with your teachers (instead of ending up on your own to figure it out?)
  • Want to explore techniques and possibilities all in one place without having to hunt them down?

Then this is the place for you!

We wish you another incredible year of creative exploration and know you will enjoy all of the wonderful classes we have in store for you.

Even if a class doesn’t interest you right now we encourage you to watch it anyway, we have found there is so much to learn from just watching others work with the clay (and lots of tips & tricks too).

The teachers we are working with this year have years of experience and tons of knowledge that you can gain just from watching.

We know you will have a wonderful, creative year!


Each classroom has it’s own private discussion area inside the retreat for asking and answering questions.

We invite you to share photos, ideas and inspiration in our private Facebook group – this is not required, but strongly encouraged.

Our PCA community will be on Facebook  in 2017  so those of you who are already on Facebook know how easy it is to share. Our group will be by invitation ONLY and cannot be found or seen by people outside of PCA 2017 and will not appear on your FB activity feed.

Join Polymer Clay Adventure

The Yearly Collection of classes and experiences that will let you grow as a polymer clay artist in a safe, encouraging environment!

This retreat has CHANGED me. It has made my life better. Did you realize that? That something you both decided to do made an actual IMPACT on a life, and I can guarantee I am not the only one. I wish you knew, I wish I could show you and tell you… and then I wish I could give you what this is worth to me… but I can’t get my hands on THAT MUCH money… you know??!! It is worth more than I could ever save up or borrow… it’s priceless really. Just know how much I appreciate, how much I give thanks, how much my heart has been healed because of The Polymer Clay Retreat.
I complement you both on the retreat. Not only have I learned new techniques (and left my comfort zone), but I have a circle of friends that offer feedback, compliments and positive energy. Thank you!
I really just wanted to say how glad I am that I signed up for the virtual retreat, it is so informative and there are so many people willing to help with any query/question you may have. To see creations made by people from all over the world and everyone willing to help no matter what level they are at is simply fantastic. Well done Kira and Ilysa and to all the teachers too. Thank you.
