The Gardiner is thrilled to announce the launch of CLAY, an original in-house restaurant offering seasonal menus of fresh, local fare in collaboration with The Food Dudes.
Closing January 20! The Gardiner has reunited for the first time more than 350 objects from Sir William Van Horne’s exceptional collection of Japanese pottery alongside archival materials and stunning watercolours.
Kids can get creative in our popular March Break camps led by a professional potter. Register your child today for hand building or wheel throwing camp, where they'll learn how to sculpt and glaze their own works of art to take home.
The Gardiner Museum is among the few museums in the world focused on ceramics, and is one of the most important specialty museums internationally. It houses approximately 4,000 objects, including European porcelain, ceramics from the Ancient Americas, Chinese porcelain, Japanese porcelain, and contemporary ceramics. Search the collection online!
Everyone can love clay! Become a Friend at one of the world’s great specialty museums and enjoy the benefits, including unlimited admission, invitations to exhibition previews and special events, discounts on lectures and clay classes, and more.
For one weekend only, spectacular floral installations by ten of Toronto’s top floral designers will be displayed throughout the Museum to celebrate the arrival of spring in the city. Each designer will create a stunning floral installation inspired by a particular piece in our permanent collection.
