About the Gift Shop

The Coast Collective Artisan Gift Shop showcases juried handmade works that celebrate the artistry and craftsmanship of Southern Vancouver Island and surrounding areas.

If you create fine art or finely crafted items, you can apply to join our community of juried artists and artisans who sell their works at our unique GO LOCAL gift shop in the heart of Victoria’s West Shore, where thousands of visitors each year find a wide variety of functional and fabulous locally created items, large and small.

SHOP BENEFITS INCLUDE:

  • Opportunity to become part of a dynamic network of practicing artists and artisans who share a personal commitment to cultural expression and the development of a thriving artists’ community;
  • Eligibility to participate in the annual Gifts & Wishes Show which kicks off the local craft festival season in November each year;
  • Opportunities to demonstrate your creative processes and/or techniques to other artists, special group tours and members of the public;
  • Opportunities to take part in occasional off-site showcases of work from the Coast Collective Arts Centre.
