Like many of you, we have been closely following the developments of COVID-19. The safety of our visitors, campers, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. Upon the advice of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams, the Gardiner Museum will close temporarily effective Saturday 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.
The starting dates of our Spring Clay Classes will be delayed. Rest assured that no cancellation penalties will go into effect before the revised dates have been announced. We are working to develop a new schedule as quickly as possible and appreciate your understanding.

Small tiles provide the perfect canvas to explore various surface decoration techniques and can be considered little works of art on their own. On your first visit, you’ll roll out earthenware clay to make tiles, then add interest to the surface using shell sprigs, coloured slips, and impressions of found objects like leaves, lace, and buttons. On your second visit, you’ll apply underglazes and glazes to accentuate the textures and designs.
Dates: June 10, 24
