We’re always happy to hear about polymer clay artists from all over the world and their activities. Today we are going to introduce The Japan Polymer Clay Association (JPCA) to our readers.

The organization was established in 2016 by a group of polymer clay artists with the aim of widely disseminating the appeal of polymer clay.

Polymer as an artistic medium is still mostly unrecognized in Japan and the founding members of JPCA set out to change that. At the same time, they intend to have fun playing with the medium while aiming to improve the technical skills of their members and among polymer clay artists in Japan.

Their main activities include organizing the annual exhibition of polymer clay artworks, publishing a newsletter twice a year, implementing JPCA's certification program with their own curriculum for teachers, and producing video training and workshops.

Get inspired by Japanese artists’ artwork that often represents their culture and traditions.
