Melbourne-based and Kiwi-born, designer and maker Sheree McCready is the brains and hands behind Polly Collective. After moving from NZ to Melbourne, Sheree sought an escape from a career in professional photography and discovered polymer clay. Cue months of research, lots of trial and error, and some truly gnarly creations. Sheree had finally found her niche. She now makes contemporary jewellery and sculpted art under Polly Collective, and is enthusiastic about sharing her zeal for polymer clay craft and its evolution in skills workshops. Sheree’s pieces use a mishmash of squiggles and dots to emphasise the simple shapes and bold colourways of her contemporary style. Her honest, down-to-earth and passionate presentation style will have you just as obsessed with polymer clay as she is.

Todays work shop with Sheree and Amy was fantastic The wealth of information along with such willingness to share it made it the perfect learning environment. No question was too hard to answer and there was such an awesome vibe in the room!
The materials provided were A grade and with such generosity! I have already recommended this workshop to my other girlfriends LOVE YOUR WORK GUYS!

Shirley Pham Mar 2021


Excellent for someone new to clay and resin. Learnt a lot and was able to consolidate some things. Venue was conducive to the environment and I thought the grazing platter was good, I liked being able to nibble on it irking they during the day. I sat near the front so the camera suffice but I can see how if you were at the back of the room it would have been difficult to watch the demos. Sheree and kissy were great!

Katelin Baker Mar 2021


Teachers were fantastic They were willing to share all their knowledge, tips and tricks. We got access to heaps of materials to experiment with (cutters, silk screens, paint, resin, loads of clay, tools etc.). Food package was delicious and everyone was so friendly. Would 100% go to another class!

Melissa Kindblad Mar 2021


Sheree and Amie were so wonderful and knowledgable, I had the best day learning about different clay and resin techniques, I can't wait to make all the things shiny! They had so many different bits of equipment that allowed me to try out a lot of things I'd been hoping for, such as silk screening and resin coating. They were so generous with their knowledge and happy to go through techniques requested as the day progressed. I would highly recommend anyone who enjoys polymer clay to attend, brilliant day!

Kubra Arli Mar 2021


This was my third workshop with Sheree.
Every single time i learn something different! There is so many options of polymer clay, not only colours but different brands she lets you test and make with. Sheree has such an amazing variety of tools and equipment for all her students. Thats not all the knowledge is mind blowing. Sheree loves it when you pick her brains out for all tips and tricks! The atmosphere the vibe is always on point! Love it! Xxoo
