Make An Event Of It
Participating in creating art is fun, therapeutic, relaxing, and broadens the mind, with potential benefits to your general well-being. An arts workshop is more than just a fun activity - it can be the centrepiece of any special event, with either Iris & Dora's Studio as the venue, or Iris & Dora can come visit your venue or workplace.
Iris & Dora can cater to your private event needs and are happy to run any of the following kinds of events: Ladies nights, hen nights, baby showers, and all kinds of private parties, through to corporate events and team building exercises for any kind of commercial business.
Ceramics, Glassware, Textiles and Homewares - Iris & Dora's gift shop sells a wide variety of locally made gifts, many featuring local landmarks, making them a great present for visitors or family that have moved away from Guernsey. Iris & Dora support over 46 locally based artisans, selling many of their products exclusively, and has free parking so there is no reason for you not to pop down and have a look at their ever-changing range.
Iris & Dora also support plastic-free Guernsey, so they stock many items that you can use to replace plastics in your home and daily life, such as shampoo bars and boomerang bags.

I love the variety on offer and the fact that they support small local crafters. Great courses on offer too to learn a new skill and enjoy time with friends.
We have just held my son's birthday at iris and dora, pottery painting, a wonderful hassle free party and such a wonderful welcome from everyone. Plus an excellent little treasure trove of a shop to browse....
