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.

A registered psychotherapist and art therapist for over 25 years, Suzanne Thomson integrates contemplative practices and sensorimotor psychotherapy to facilitate healing and community engagement. Her work as an artist and Rinzai Zen practitioner shapes how she works with clay to transform habits of thinking, feeling, and behaving. She provides psychotherapy, supervision, and clinical consultation. Suzanne teaches art therapy and co-creates community-based arts projects. The exhibition Transformation By Fire at the Gardiner won the 2013 Award of Excellence in Exhibitions—a direct reflection of Suzanne’s deep commitment to working collaboratively to address social justice issues through the arts.
In this two-hour workshop, we'll explore clay as a medium for deepening our experience of the present moment. Through a series of hand-building exercises, we'll focus our attention on the dance between breath and clay, awakening to our present moment experience through the senses and finding our centre.
