Designed by Vancouver architects John and Patricia Patkau, The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery provides a stunning background for corporate, community or private events. Located in the heart of downtown Waterloo, we are easily accessible by car or transit, and have ample parking for our guests just off Father David Bauer Drive.
With a wide variety of spaces available to rent, we can accommodate almost any event. The main floor of the Gallery, which includes the Education Gallery, The Shantz Gallery, The Bierstock Gallery, and the Mutual Tower Gallery, is suitable for large standing receptions, fundraising events, or seminar groups in need of break out areas. The main Gallery is our most popular rental space. Incorporating the Shantz Gallery, the Bierstock Gallery and the Mutual Tower Gallery, it is an ideal setting for standing receptions, large lecture groups, or sit down dinners. The Douglas T. Wright Education Gallery is a smaller space, suitable for more intimate events, such as smaller lecture groups, receptions or business meetings. The Ann Roberts Archival Centre is our smallest room. With a seated capacity of 12, it is ideal for small meeting groups, seminars and presentations.
In order to maintain the integrity of The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery as a public cultural institution, rentals are booked outside our public viewing hours only.
