If you havent indulged your creative side since that life drawing class
in university, we have the perfect way to revive your inner Rodin.

The Gardiner Museum runs drop-in
clay classes
twice a week for students of all levels. Book one of
its nine throwing wheels or hand-sculpt your work of art (we attempted a
set of retro eggcups). The vibe is relaxed, materials are provided and a
professional is on-hand to answer any questions. In the Friday evening
crowd, we spotted stylish hipsters, seasoned experts and cute couples on
what looked to be first dates.

Our tip? Start small. The two hours are through before you know it. Then
head upstairs for a glass of wine at Jamie Kennedy at the Gardiner. We
just love his work.

Tickets on sale 30 minutes before each session. First come, first
served. $10 public, $8 members, seniors, students, $5 firing fee per
piece. The Gardiner: Drop-in Clay Class, Fridays 6-8 pm, Sundays 1-3 pm.
111 Queens Park, 416-586-8080,
