Like many of you, we have been closely following the developments of COVID-19. The Gardiner Museum is closed temporarily as of March 14, 2020.
We will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of the closure and will post updates to our website and social media channels as they become available. We are grateful for your support and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to navigate this challenging time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gardiner soon.
Our spring sessional classes and workshops scheduled for April and May have been cancelled. Refunds will be issued automatically.
The Gardiner Museum is among the few museums in the world focused on ceramics, and is one of the most important specialty museums internationally.

Turtle House Ceramics is a special clay-making project by Turtle House Art/Play Centre for newcomer artists and non-artists primarily from refugee backgrounds. In celebration of Refugee Rights Month this April, an exhibition will be on display in the lobby featuring new works by participants of the project.
The participants have been working diligently for the last three months in our Laura Dinner and Richard Rooney Community Clay Studio, reflecting on their mixed feelings about leaving home and finding home away from home.
