Hear from some of our volunteers:

“I am very proud to be a front desk greeter at The Clay & Glass for the past 17 years. The quality of artwork has always been spectacular and I am proud to see it comes from artists across Canada.”
– Freda Miller

I enjoy my weekly volunteer duties as a Greeter at the Clay & Glass for many reasons. It’s a pleasure to be in the beautiful Gallery spaces. It’s always interesting and inspiring to view the dynamic, ever-changing art exhibitions. It’s fun to chat with the range of visitors and an honour to represent the Gallery in a small way. It’s wonderful to browse and shop in the Gallery Shop as it’s filled with gorgeous handmade work by creative and talented artists  “
-Louise Grisdale
