The gallery features traditional antiques and contemporary hooked rugs created by local craftspeople as well as masterpieces by world renowned wool artist Elizabeth LeFort. Visitors are also invited to watch rug hooking demonstrations and are encouraged to ask questions about the tools and techniques used by the talented Chéticamp artisans.
