It’s a brand new and exciting IPCA event that will run alongside, and overlap with, the Synergy4 Conference.
When we started to plan Synergy4, we wanted to include a room for people who like to reconnect with their worldwide polymer friends and have ‘hands-on’ with clay in their own workspace. This room will have its own program, but we are also giving attendees the opportunity to experience part of the Conference program.

Celebrating the Next 50 Years of Polymer Clay
In this lively session, Nils Henssen and Daniel Torres will present a retrospective on the first 50 years of polymer clay as well as a vision for what the next 50 years may hold.
Presenters: Nils Henssen and Daniel Torres
Nils Henssen is STAEDTLER’s Marketing Manager for the Hobby & Creative Sector.
Daniel Torres Daniel is a curious engineer, trying to conceal creativity and technique into his work. He is honored to be taught and inspired every day by the most important polymer clay artists and leaders in the world: Donna Kato, Natalia Garcia de Leaniz.
So, so many friends he admires and thanks from the bottom of his heart. He has taught at Donna Kato’s Clay Carnival and CraftArtEdu.com, Helen Cox’s Polymer Play Days and Ismar Gil’s academy in Madrid.
This presentation will celebrate and explore the unique evolution processes of the North American and European polymer communities, each with their distinctive visions. While in many respects there is much common ground, clearly there are also many differences.
We all are uniquely creative – where does inspiration come from? Join Katrina Marsh Sarlin and fellow Synergy4 attendees in a guided collaboration exercise that will inspire your creativity through touch, sound, and color.
