Please join us for the Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild\'s 7th Biennial Retreat:  Clay ConneCTion 2010, August 5-8, held on the campus of Connecticut College in New London, CT

Clay ConneCTion is a wonderful opportunity to spend a weekend with approximately 75 polymer clay enthusiasts, to share ideas, watch demos, shop with Polymer Clay Express, and generally have fun.  This year we are expanding to 4 days, Thursday through Sunday, August 5 – 8. 

This is not a retreat with formal classes or a special guest artist, instead attendees provide a wide variety of demos throughout the weekend.  The retreat is held on the campus of Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut.  Accommodations are in dormitories (newer, clean and surprisingly comfortable), single or double occupancy.  Meals are provided from Thursday dinner through Sunday lunch.

Costs are:  $285 Thurs-Sun or $230 Fri-Sun (commuter costs are $205 or $180)  $10 discount for IPCA members, additional $10 discount for SCPCG or NYPCG members.

General information and a registration form can be found on the guild website:
