Polymer Clay Express in France!

The Euro Clay Carnival in France this October is delighted to welcome Polymer Clay Express to the team!

Rob & Wilma will be over from America for the duration of the carnival. This is a major scoop for France & Europe as participants to the carnival will not only be able to buy tools face to face but they will also be able to see Wilma demonstrate some of her new tools!

On top of all of this Rob & Wilma have also agreed to come back for more next March at the Clay Corbières Créatives event. Make sure you are signed up for the latest news as like this year, next year’s event is bound to be a sell out again.

Full, full, full – polymer clay

Would you belive that it only took 8 days from launching the new Euro Clay Carnival France website to announcing that the event is fully booked! We have 60 participants signed up for the event which promises to be one of the best polymer clay workshops in France!

I have been hard at work on some new art objects inclusing salad & pasta servers, wine stoppers and pickle / shellfis forks. Watch this space for some new photos!

Servers & Stoppers - prices from 18 €

Euro Clay Carnival France 2009 – new website!

There will be a new website dedicated entirely to the Euro Clay Carnival France.

Donna Kato - magical creations!
Donna Kato - magical creations!

I am currently working on the website design and content.

This site will be the ONLY place where reservations can be made and payments processed.

Places will be on a first come first served payment basis.

The site will go “live” mid September 2008. All members of the European Polymer Clay People Forum will be informed via an e-mail immediately once the website is “live”.

There will also be information on suggested hotels. B&Bs etc for accommodation, travel information, programme content and a forum where you can chat to and meet other participants before the event.

I have already been inundated with e-mail and telephone enquiries as a consequence I have decided that the best way to proceed is via a specific website where bookings will be taken.

I hope this helps everyone.
