SCPCG 20th Anniversary Celebration

I can't believe it's been almost 20 years since we started the Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild!
You are invited to celebrate with us at the Foxon Firehouse on Route 80 in East Haven.

We are hosting a class with Marie Segal the weekend of Sept 30 & Oct 1. The party will be following the class on Saturday.
6 - 10-ish pm.
Current and former guild members and friends are invited to attend.
Do you have any old pictures of the guild you'd like to share?
We're thinking of doing a presentation/screening (or whatever you call it).
Let's all bring an old creation that we were proud of (or hated) and let's see how far we've come. We are always learning, so don't be shy. (In lieu of that, bring your oldest block of clay, LOL!)
Please let us know if you are planning on attending, so we can get a count for the catering.
Reply/RSVP to [email protected]
If you have any questions/suggestions please let me know.
Thank you,
Sharon & Diane

Traveling Exhibit – Stamford

The guild's TRAVELING EXHIBIT was installed for the 1st time in Stamford at the Ferguson Library. It was set up to a series of oooohs and aaahhs and several Bottles of Hope requests as well.
You can stop by and visit we will be there for the summer through the end of September.

Traveling Exhibit and Clay Day – West Haven

Display Case at the West Haven Library

Traveling Exhibit at the West Haven Library ~ May and June
Clay Day Saturday, June 4 from 11:30am - 4:45pm

Ready to try something new?
To explore your artistic side (even if you think you don't have one)? Do you like trying new things at no cost to you? Would you like to give someone who's going through a hard time and uplift, and have fun doing it?

Polymer clay is a fun, easy to use art medium with colors for everyone. Come join us on June 4th at the West Haven Library, and get your hands into it! We will provide all the clay and tools, and some ideas; you bring your fingers. We'll teach you how you can use polymer clay to make items from sculptures to jewelry to home decorations.

We'll also be making Bottles of Hope, small former medicine bottles that we re-purpose into Bottles of Hope, which are freely distributed to anyone who is dealing with the struggles of cancer. If you too know someone who is dealing with cancer or a survivor, you are encouraged to bring your personally made Bottle of Hope to them. And, hopefully, make some for us to distribute to others.
