#2 of 6 in Museums in Oakville
Located on Burnhamthorpe Road, 1 km east of Trafalgar Road in Oakville, The Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre serves the community as a place of gatherings from creative media workshops, films, musical events, and lectures to weddings.

The Centre serves as a place where individuals meet to learn, collaborate, and cultivate relationships with one another. This emerging cultural facility promotes local heritage, outreach and accessibility, with ecological integrity being central to its activities.

The 1827 heritage house has been expanded to host large groups in a social setting. Joshua Creek Centre has sun-filled workshop rooms where people can come to work in a variety of artistic media and techniques in a picturesque setting. This addition connects the original house to The Winter Garden which features a boardroom for small meetings.

The Press Room features a studio complete with printmaking and fibre arts facilities.

In the rear of the building, breathtaking views of the Joshua Creek are provided by The Studio, a large workshop most often filled with like-minded artists who produce an amazing energy.

Above The Studio, in The Loft, a tapestry studio is manned by weavers creating a 9 foot piece for the World of Threads Festival in 2012.

Below The Studio, the Computer Graphics Lab offers art quality reproduction services, giclées, large format digital printing, scanning and photo-retouching services.

  • Take your time when you visit, learn about the history of Joshua Creek and the wide variety of programs for Art and Meditation - programs for every age and skill level.

  • Beautiful gem. I loved the freshman lilacs by the front door. There are many creative things to do here. I was here for a private event to host a wine pairing. Good venue.
