Feeling stressed? In our four-week mindfulness workshops, registered art therapist Suzanne Thomson will show you a series of clay hand-building exercises to help you relax and reconnect with the present. The first class starts on October 28, so act fast!
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!
We need your support to continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation to help us build community with clay.
Delve into the history of ceramics and explore the Gardiner Collection and special exhibitions in the company of colleagues, family, or friends.
Please note: As the Gardiner works to ensure the safety and well-being of our visitors, staff, and volunteers, we are re-evaluating our group tours based on provincial guidelines. Currently, our single group capacity is limited to 10 individuals. We may be able to host larger groups on a per-case basis.
Groups can enjoy a 45-min private tour tailored to their interests by requesting a focus on a particular gallery, the current special exhibition, or the entire collection.
While you’re here, don’t miss your chance to reserve a table for your group at Clay Restaurant!
