Polymer Clay Adventure Virtual Retreat is a Celebration of Art 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 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.

By the end of the year long adventure in exploring art media, techniques, and projects, you will…

learn to surrender any fears you have about investing time and money in your own creativity, because your art matters!

connect with like-minded kindred spirits all over the world and make new friends

We want to live in a world where inspiration is unlimited and where we share with others who have the passion to mix up their media and use polymer clay for dimension and fun!

We are so tired of obstacles getting in the way of our creative explorations...

  • Fears and scarcity related to time and money...
  • Forgetting what you learn after leaving a classroom...
  • Access to teachers to ask questions as you are experimenting and learning...
  • Leaving your kids, pets, and significant others at home and out of the experience...
  • That the cost of travel has become so prohibitive, never mind the cost to hire someone to care for those left-behind kids, pets and houses...

We want you to have the Retreat Experience you always dreamed of!

So, we've created the Polymer Clay Adventure Virtual Retreat- A new innovative way for everyone, everywhere in the world to experience the fun!

We're so thrilled that we gathered up 22 delightful and passionate teachers who are  gifted and experienced in all kinds of polymer clay and mixed-media arts.

We've made sure that the lessons they are preparing are varied, informative and that you will learn something different and unique from each and every teacher.

It's about honoring you- because Your Art Matters. Learning new things is exciting and fun- and doing it in an enjoyable way is important. Also, there's going to be loads of online antics, probably with cookies and possibly wine, and in our pj's.

Right now, we want you to claim a seat in the first and only Virtual Polymer Clay Retreat. We're unlocking access to a worldwide collection of teachers, bridging the gaps between distance and locations, and bringing us all together for one amazing knock-your-socks off affordable experience. There has never been anything like this before!


With all our Love and Kind Regards...See you on the incredible Journey!

A comment from one of our current retreat Attendees:

This is not a question but an observation. I have attended retreats and workshops in the past. If I take an average of $250 for a workshop and multiply that by 22 (number of artists participating and teaching in PCA), it would cost me $5,500 to participate in everything. We are getting this incredible experience for $99. This is a once in a lifetime thing! Thank you Ilysa and Kira for putting this together and thank you to all the wonderful artists who are teaching!
