Looking to purchase locally handcrafted items?  The Yellowknife Guild of Arts and Crafts hosts annual spring and Christmas sales and operates Fireweed Studio during summer months.  Many of our studio potters and mixed media artists offer their work for sale through these venues.


The Yellowknife Guild of Arts and Crafts will hold its annual spring sales on May 4 and 5 at the Guild building at 133 Kam Lake Road.  Sales will run from 10 am to 2 pm each day.  All shopping will be on a drop-in basis; reserved time slots are no longer required or available.

A variety of arts and crafts locally handmade by Guild artists will be on display and available for purchase!  Expect to find pottery, felting, fibre arts and more.  Remember to bring your own reusable shopping bags.  Cash, credit card and debit card accepted.


The Guild hosts spring sales in May and Christmas sales in late November and early December each year. Following the success and popularity of adaptations made during the Covid-19 pandemic, these sales are now held in the mixed media studio at the Guild building.

Our spring and Christmas sales are extremely popular with customers often braving frigid temperatures to line up in advance of opening time.  The frenzied atmosphere and strategic shopping tactics of our pre-Covid Christmas sales were captured on film in "Pottery Wars".


Fireweed Studio operates from early June through early September.  Regular hours are Tuesdays from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm (during the Yellowknife Farmer’s Market), and Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.  Special openings are on June 21 (Aboriginal Day), and July 1 (Canada Day and ice-cream bowl sale).

Fireweed Studio is a tiny log frame building designated as a City of Yellowknife heritage site. The building reflects the style of old northern mining camps. It was built as a blacksmith shop at Brock Mine in the 1930's, then served as a powder magazine at Giant Mine, and was relocated to Yellowknife city hall in 1978 to serve as a tourist information centre.  The Guild has been using the building as its summer sales shop since 1993.
