Clay Owl Boutique and Studio

May 27, 2022

Clay Owl Boutique and Studio was purchased by Gateway in the spring of 2019 as our first Social Enterprise. We are located at 586 Main Street, in Winkler. Clay Owl’s primary purpose is to provide training opportunities for the participants that are supported through the job development program. Skills are built through the job interview process, discussing shifts and schedules, requesting time off, filling out timecards, customer service skills and any other on-site skills related to working at Clay Owl. This is all accomplished alongside the support of a fulltime job coach employed at Clay Owl. The participants who work at Clay Owl earn a wage and take with them skills that are transferable to future employment opportunities within the community. Please check our website for more information at:
