Hello, Creative Friend!

Polymer Clay Adventure is a yearly gathering of artists, teachers, makers, and seekers from all over the globe. Each spring, we, Ilysa and Kira, reach out to the polymer clay community and ask for submissions of wonderful interesting techniques and projects and we pick the very best ones to share in an All-Inclusive Private, Encouraging Community atmosphere.

This is our labor of love- we love polymer clay, creativity, and expanding our imaginations.

One of the best ways to do this is to expose yourself to lots of interesting inspiration by watching other people create. No one's hands do the same thing, no one's mind thinks the same way, and we know that the classes we have included will help you to see your own crafting in new ways!

Each Year, we aim to make PCA Better and More Inspiring for You!

This year, you can expect:

  • 24+ Full Length Video Projects including all kinds of fun techniques
  • Weekly Emails for all 52 weeks of the year with inspiration and invitations to join in the creative fun
  • Swaps every other month so you can share your creations with your new friends
  • Video Create-Alongs with our teachers throughout the year
  • Photo Sharing and Commenting inside our self-contained private, safe community (right here!)
  • Giveaways from our Sponsors that you can win simply by sharing what you are learning
  • A Digital Goody Bag full of discounts and special offers from our Sponsors that you can use all year

It’s a Celebration of Art

Designed 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 & jewelry-making to spice things up.

It's really all 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.

*Because Your Creativity Matters*

Develop your Skills and have Fun Doing it!

PCA is a collaborative curated grouping of classes you can’t find anywhere else on the web.

Projects are selected carefully so you will learn a variety of techniques from a group of talented artists and teachers, each with her own style and way of working with clay.

  • Want to learn how to create pieces of art, decor, jewelry, gift items, and more?
  • Want to grow in an encouraging private forum with like-minded learners who love to share?
  • Want to really connect with your teachers (instead of ending up on your own to figure it out?)
  • Want to explore techniques and possibilities all in one place without having to hunt them down?

Then this is the place for you!


PCA has 24 classes on-demand to watch any time, as many times as you like. Classes are posted on January 1. Before that, you can download your supply lists, meet other members, and join in the pre-retreat activities!

See what our Community Members are saying:

I complement you both on the retreat. Not only have I learned new techniques (and left my comfort zone), but I have a circle of friends that offer feedback, compliments and positive energy. Thank you!


This retreat has CHANGED me. It has made my life better. Did you realize that? That something you both decided to do made an actual IMPACT on a life, and I can guarantee I am not the only one. I wish you knew, I wish I could show you and tell you… and then I wish I could give you what this is worth to me… but I can’t get my hands on THAT MUCH money… you know??!! It is worth more than I could ever save up or borrow… it’s priceless really. Just know how much I appreciate, how much I give thanks, how much my heart has been healed because of The Polymer Clay Retreat.


I really just wanted to say how glad I am that I signed up for the virtual retreat, it is so informative and there are so many people willing to help with any query/question you may have. To see creations made by people from all over the world and everyone willing to help no matter what level they are at is simply fantastic. Well done Kira and Ilysa and to all the teachers too. Thank you.



Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
Pre-retreat activities start in November. The classes open for self-paced study on January 1, for all of 2018. You decide when you start and when you finish each lesson. You will receive a weekly email from us throughout 2018 full of inspiration and invitations to join in the fun.
Can I join any time?
You can sign up any time during the year and get all the classes and community! It's never too late to join us and join in the fun.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course online for all of 2018 - across any and all devices you own. At the end of the year, you will receive instructions on how to download any parts of PCA that you would like to keep forever. As long as we operate this website and you remain a member of it, you will have access to all the classes included.
What if I am really experienced and already know everything there is to know about polymer clay. Is this still good for me?
The contents of PCA are carefully chosen to give you something to learn no matter what level you are at. There is great stuff and resources for beginners, and there is always something to learn for advanced and experienced polymer clay artists. No one does the same thing with polymer clay- that's the fun of it!
What about Copyright?
Please view our Terms page for more answers to your questions about legal stuff: http://createalong.teachable.com/p/terms/ - scroll down to the bottom of the page for a link.
Can I only buy the classes I want?
Even if you aren't interested in doing all the projects, members have told us they think it is worth it to watch the videos and learn from them. Everyone has a different style and approach and artists who have been working with polymer clay for over 20 years tell us that they learn something new in PCA. You can wait to see if the teachers want to release the class separately after the year is over (many of them choose NOT to so this is the only place to get these classes). These classes would be listed at $40-$75 individually. So the $99 is a STEAL!
What is the Refund policy?
We would never want you to be unhappy! Upon purchase, you will receive all of the supply lists and other proprietary information from our teachers. Therefore your purchase is non-refundable. Please contact us prior to buying if you have any questions!
