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.

Let your creativity shine through wheel-thrown clay!

Learn the skills to throw a vessel and the techniques to take it further than function. Explore wheel throwing techniques and be inspired by the fundamental building blocks of creating 3-dimensional ideas and objects on the wheel. Play with form and surface, opening the imaginative outlet of expression while participating in building the relationship between form, colour, and surface. Try the application of diverse artistic techniques in a fun hands-on clay learning experience.
