About Iron Oxide Art Supplies

Iron Oxide Art Supplies first opened its doors in January of 2014 in the historic #2 Firehall building in downtown Nanaimo but it's roots go back much further as the proprietor, Willow Friday, opened her first store, House of Indigo Boutique, back in 2002. 

Iron Oxide carries a full spectrum of art supplies including acrylic,oil, and watercolor paint, a tremendous selection of brushes, colored pencils, spray paint, pastels, stencils, inks, pencils and pens, markers, supplies for printmaking, calligraphy, bookbinding, and more!

If we don't have it, please ask and we'll likely order it in. 

In addition to being a fully stocked art supply store with the best prices on the island, Iron Oxid offers creative support to the public and sponsors community events like Nanaimo Artwalk, Art Bomb, Vibe Dance's Dance Video Collection and more...
