What we're about

NWPCG is a non-profit organization formed exclusively for educational, artistic and charitable purposes. Our membership is open to adults or teens interested in working with polymer clay. We have been an organization since 1994, and host a monthly meeting the first Wednesday of every month in Edmonds, and a bimonthly all day clay play day at the Third Place Commons in Lake Forest Park.

We have all of of information on the website www.nwpcg.org. In addition to the aforementioned clay events, once a year we have a 5 day long Clay Camp at Camp Huston in Gold Bar, WA, with classes and a 24 hour work area. Starting this year, we are also going to try and host two entirely free beginner's classes each year for teaching polymer clay basics, supplies included.

We also demo polymer clay at the Evergreen State Fair and the Washington State Fair each year.

If you're interested in clay and what can be made with it (sculpture, jewelry, buttons, home decor, bowls, etc), come check us out!

Polymer Clay Monthly Meeting

Online event

This and all events until further notice are virtual only, on Zoom. Please contact me for instructions on how to join us. Visitors are welcome to try us out for a monthly meeting or two, after that we ask they join for $20 per year via our website. Our monthly meetings can be one of three types, check out our website for the schedule www.nwpcg.org: Program- One teacher presents a techniques, usually hands on. This can include exploring a new clay tool or product, or just a bigger project than a round robin would leave time for. Round Robin- Two teachers take turns doing smaller polymer clay techniques, always hand on, although people are welcome to watch only if preferred. Clay Social- We bring our supplies and a project and each do our own thing. This is a great time to bring questions, to ask for demoes, or just to watch and be inspired. At each meeting we have an announcements, and a show and tell section. People are welcome to bring snacks or desserts to share, but this is not required. If you're going to clay along, bring clay, a clay blade, a portable work surface, and something to roll your clay out with (brayer, or pasta machine). Members of the guild receive a newsletter telling about additional supplies, but people are always willing to share. E-mail me at [masked] with any questions.

NWPCG Clay Day

Online event

Until further notice this and all of our other meetings are virtual only via Zoom. Contact me for information on how to join. We get to clay all day long! We have tables near the stage of the Commons area, with some signs saying NWPCG Clay Day. Some people stay for the whole day, others drop by for a few hours. Non-clay crafting projects are fine too. This is a great chance to ask how to do things, watch others work, or bring a project. There are no ovens available so be sure and have a safe way to bring your unbaked projects home. Recommended supplies to bring- clay, clay blade, pasta machine or brayer, portable work surface, sack lunch or $ for lunch at the restaurants.
