The British Polymer Clay Guild is run by a voluntary committee of people dedicated to the world of polymer clay and its promotion. They happily give up their spare time to manage branches, put new members in touch with each other and organise events, newsletters and promote polymer clay as an art medium.​

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.
