Please check in on our outdoor plaza upon arrival for the class. Bring a piece of ID as you will be asked to produce one while checking in. If you have selected the Student or Gardiner Friends rate, you will be asked to produce the appropriate ID upon arrival for the class. Unless your membership is at the Friends & Family level or higher, each participant will require their own student or membership ID.


This class will take place outdoors, weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather, the class will be cancelled and participants notified.

Our outdoor classes will focus on hand building. There is no wheel throwing or glazing at this time.

The cost for firing is a minimum of $5 per piece depending on its size. Please notify staff if you would like your work fired. Firing is optional.


Pick up will begin in Step 3 of the province’s reopening plan. At that point, clay pieces can ONLY be picked up during the following times:

Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm


Firing takes two weeks to complete, and pieces will be held for an additional 3 weeks. Please check-in at the front desk and note that there may be a short wait depending on staff availability. We do not provide bags or boxes.
