The Gardiner Museum is open seven days a week. Explore our permanent collection, discover special exhibitions, get hands-on with clay in our studios, dine, shop, and more. We look forward to welcoming you!
Enter a world at once familiar and uncanny. The exhibition hall has been transformed into an immersive reimagining of Montreal-based artist Karine Giboulo's home. Brought to life by over 500 miniature polymer clay figures, this is no ordinary house. The figures tell stories that reflect our most urgent social issues, from the pandemic and climate crisis to food insecurity and housing instability. Get tickets!
From now until January, join us every day in the lobby for Wish in Clay, a family-friendly community clay activity, included with adult admission and free for kids. We supply the materials and you bring your creativity!
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!

This 8-week course is designed for beginners who want to learn the fundamentals of making pottery and those looking to reconnect with clay. Working in stoneware, students are exposed to basic hand-building techniques, such as slab, coil, pinch, press moulding, and sculpting. Participants will learn the basics of wheel throwing, where they will centre, open, and pull to create basic cylindrical vessels.
This class also emphasizes surface treatment, encouraging students to experiment with glaze combinations on both functional and sculptural pieces.
Dates: January 9, 16, 23, 30, February 6, 13, 27, March 6 (No class February 20)
Please note: For the stoneware classes, one bag of stoneware clay is provided per student. Additional bags can be purchased for $30 each.
