Who we are


 Penny 2017

I am Penny Vingoe and Clayaround is based in lovely rural Wales  

Only fourteen years ago I discovered Polymer clay.  thirteen years ago I went on my first workshop where the organiser commented that she wished that she had an alternative supplier - and the idea for Clayaround was formulated.   Within months of in-depth research and product sourcing we were up and running and now, almost twelve years on, are expanding rapidy, thanks in particular to our many loyal customer

As I continue to learn I do demonstrations, classes and talks, and share knowledge about this wonderful medium.

For six years we ran monthly free claydays.  These were always well attended and a delightful way to meet people.   In the last couple of years the BPCG (British Polymer Clay Guild - of which I was a committee member at one point) have developed a network of similar days all over the country.
