Who We Are

Founded in September 1997 by Sue Heaser, Alison Gallant and Margaret Reid, the British Polymer Clay Guild is open to anyone who is interested in polymer clay; from beginners to professionals.


Members include miniaturists, jewellery makers, sculptors, doll makers and anyone else who works with polymer clay. Membership is open to anyone who wants to learn more about this remarkable medium.

The Guild is growing rapidly and it is hoped that the members will guide the way it develops. We value contributions from members, love to receive comments, reviews, tutorials and photographs of their work.


The Guild is run by a voluntary committee of officers. New committee members are always welcome and you do not need to be a professional artist to have a say in the running of the Guild.


Our Aims

We aim to collectively promote the use of polymer clay as a truly amazing and versatile art medium.


We support our members, from beginners to professionals, in their field of expertise through our branches across the UK and at workshops and conferences.


We also have a presence at prestigious arts, crafts and hobby shows.
