Kiln it!

begin September 5

Join us in September and October as we offer weekly pottery classes in our inspiring outdoor Creekside Studio!

Each 4-week class (one beginning September 5, the other beginning October 3) offers both adults and children a unique opportunity to create clay pots and dishes in a variety of artistic styles. Instructor Charlee Wagner teaches hand-crafted sculpting techniques and different methods of firing each piece. This includes raku (which creates unpredictable and beautiful patterns on the pot) and traditional glass-based glazes.

Classes and workshops at Montalvo grow out of our institutional commitment to engaging with the community serving as a catalyst for learning at all ages. The Creekside Studio offers a perfect, tranquil space for students of all ages to learn a new craft! If you have kids (ages 5 & up), you are encouraged to register them and yourself so that you can be creative together.

Pottery classes are offered each Thursday of the month from 3:30-5:30pm. Click here to register today!

Our new vending machine

Have you ever found yourself at Montalvo for an afternoon, hiking and walking our beautiful grounds, and thought to yourself, "I could really use a cold beverage and something to nosh on"? In the past, you would have had to pack up your things and head to downtown Saratoga or Los Gatos to address this craving.

Not anymore! A new healthy vending machine located near the Box Office offers Luna bars, veggie crisps, coconut water, and plenty of other delicious options to satisfy you in a pinch. Swing by and get yourself a snack, then stay at Montalvo a little while longer! You'll be glad you did. 


One way or another,
you need to see Blondie September 20

Blondie performs Sept 30

New Wave pioneers Blondie arrive in Montalvo's beautiful outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre on Friday, September 20, at 7:30pm, for a show that will get your pulse moving. Special guests X open the show, making for an unforgettable night of rock & roll.

Blondie has sold more than 40 million albums globally and reached the top of the charts with such hits as “One Way Or Another,” “Heart Of Glass,” “Rapture,” and “Maria.” In 2006, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Their new album, 
Panic of Girls, is the ninth in the band’s 37-year career.

X were the first L.A. punk band to be taken seriously by the rock press, with a raw sound as powerful as anything coming out of New York or London. They enjoyed over a decade of success in the 70s and 80s, and have since reunited for special performances and tours - including this exciting combination with Blondie. 

When you purchase your tickets, be sure to enhance your experience with Dining on the Terrace, our pre-concert dinner on the front veranda of the historic Villa. And don't forget to RSVP on our Facebook Event Page
