Unique holiday gifts are available at the Dorchester Center for the Arts. The Center has a sizeable gift shop, called Studioworks, which offers many specialty items. Included in the inventory are works from local artists that include paintings, photographs, pottery, books, glassware, music, jewelry and much more.

            Newly added to the inventory are teddy bears called “Bearlooms”, which are the creations of Woolford artist Martha Spray. These designed and cut bears are made from fine wools, including cashmere, camel hair and Angora goat mohair. They are assembled with a combination of machine and hand sewing, however some are made completely by hand. Although patterns are similar, each bear is unique in its finished design.

Purchases made from Studio Works benefit artists from our area and also the Center. Customers are invited to shop during the Centers normal business hours and purchases can be made by cash, check, Visa, Master Card or Discover. The Center is open Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Friday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Center gift certificates are also available, which can be used toward gallery and gift shop purchases, classes and workshops.
