These one of a kind chests are produced as part of a program between First Nation traditional carvers, and woodworkers using the facilities at William Head Prison in Victoria. Crafted from beautiful yellow cedar with lids featuring woven red cedar in sets, these chests provide not only a safe environment to store precious textiles, but also a lovely aroma when opened. These chests are also multi purpose as one customer told us about adding a glass top to her loon design trunk to create a functional coffee table. Be sure to stop by the museum gift shop for a closer look at these lovely chests.
A local artist, Fred Peters depicts colorful, fun portrayals of west coast life with his vivid acrylics pieces. His city scenes of Nanaimo have been transferred to adorn playing cards, tote bags, wine stoppers, and note books. Creating a unique and fun gift or memento for visitors to Nanaimo, be sure to stop by the Nanaimo Museum to take a closer look at Peters work.
