Family Days

UPDATE: As of Sunday November 15, our Family Days are on hold. This is in response to the rising number of COVID cases in Toronto. While all of our classes and clay activities operate within government guidelines, we have made the decision to suspend Family Days for now in the interest of our communities. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Free with admission! Join us for family pottery activities every Saturday, Sunday, and Holiday Monday from 11 am – 3 pm.

Families can get hands-on with clay in a safe, socially-distanced environment under the guidance of a pottery instructor. Clay tools are sterilized after each use. Capacity is strictly limited to 10 participants at a time.

You can also get creative at home! Click on the links below for kid-friendly resources and art activities.
