We meet via Zoom on the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm CST. We have a short demonstration generously given by on of our members and an occasional guest artist, followed by a short business meeting, and best of all, "show and Tell" where anyone can share their recent creations.
If you would like to visit a meeting, email [email protected] to receive the Zoom link.
A Place To Learn And Nurture Your Creativeness
Denise will present "From Photos to Finished Pieces"
I hold a B.S. in Secondary Spanish Education, an M.S. in Secondary Curriculum, and a Certificate of Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership. I was a Spanish teacher for 27 years. My creative journey began with beading and moved on to wire work, enameling, mixed media, and finally, polymer clay. I am now a polymer clay mixed media artist. I unite wire, mesh, fiber, beads, paint, powders, found objects, paper, and more with polymer clay. My art is therapy; I use my art themes to transcend my anxiety and struggles with depression. I bring healing not only to myself but others by teaching classes and discussing the therapeutic effects that my art has in my life and am currently studying to be a certified art therapist.
KCPCG WinterWorkshop with Laurel Swetnam and Lea Gordinier
The Kansas City Polymer Clay Guild began in late 2005 as a small group of polymer clay artists gathered under the direction of Anne Rowe. Sixteen years later, our group has grown to over 31 active or honorary members. Several of our members are from the KC metro area and all over Missouri as well...and even have a few from out-of-state.
We are an enthusiastic group of polymer clay makers! We have award-winning veteran clay makers as well as members who are just beginning their journey. Everyone is happy to share their knowledge and skills with the group!
We would love to have you join us at our meetings and become an active member of our guild. We are always interested in meeting other clayers and making new friends. Come join us...we're loads of fun!!!
Learn from some of the most skilled and sought-after artists as they do in-person demonstrations (when restrictions are lifted)...
Shown here is Melanie West demonstrating her organic-style technique in a workshop held in 2018.
We have several types of demonstrations. These demos range from hands-on, follow along, as well as instructor-led demos. So no matter what your learning style is, we've got you covered.
So many of us have formed lasting friendships! It all started with joining the guild and getting to know one another. And nothing is more fun than getting together and enjoying each other's company with your polymer clay besties!
