Registration Instructions

Fall clay classes will be available for online registration starting September 21 at 10 am for Gardiner Friends*, and September 25 at 10 am for the general public. Please note that these classes are uploaded manually so it may take several minutes before the entire schedule is posted. We do not release the schedule in advance of registration.

Because of our reduced staffing and hours, we highly recommend online registration as we will not always have someone answering the phones. If you are unable to register online, you can call 416.408.5055 or email mail@gardinermuseum.com and someone will return your message at the first possible opportunity. Messages will be answered in the order that they are received. This may take up to 24 – 48 hours.
