The only way to truly appreciate the skill and artistry of the Inuit is to see their work in its original home. You will see how it varies from one community to the next. Techniques, materials and subject matter differ from artist to artist. Working with the resources available to them, Inuit artists, carvers and artisans have fashioned some of the world’s most treasured art and handicrafts. From the traditional soapstone carvings coveted by collectors to intricate leather and bead work, the Inuit produce an amazing volume of extremely high quality work.

For information on local artists, carvers/ handicrafts artisans in Chesterfield Inlet, contact the local Economic Development Officer at the Hamlet Office phone: (867) 898-9206 or           E-mail: Economic Development Officer
