Fantasy Shoes

The Gardiner Museum and the Bata Shoe Museum offer a partnered full-day program.  Students spend the morning at the Bata Shoe Museum touring their galleries and handling artifacts.  After lunch, they walk to the Gardiner Museum (5-10 minute walk) and work with our professional potters to create fantasy shoes out of clay.

Please book the tour portion of your field trip with the Bata Shoe Museum at 416.979.7799 ext. 228, and the Gardiner portion with us.
