In 1996 a dedicated group of Amherst Island Artists and Artisans dreamed of a place to exhibit and sell their work. The dream was translated into reality and became The Weasel and Easel, a shop committed to excellence in products and service. Staffed by volunteers, the Weasel and Easel shares the heritage building with the Museum. The Weasel and Easel offers fine art and crafts from Island and area artists at affordable prices with no taxes. Lovely handmade wooden boxes, paintings and drawings, woven blankets and scarves, glass, pottery, fibre art, and local honey, preserves, and jam. Take home a memory from Amherst island or find that unique hostess, thank you, baby or birthday gift. Photos, drawings, and cards of special places on the Island make a lasting memory.
The Weasel and Easel is open when the Museum is open.
