Founded in 1912, Dovecot Studios is a tapestry studio unique for its 'highly creative collaboration between artist weaver and commissioner.' Establishing a reputation as a leading contemporary fine art tapestry studio, renowned artists such as David Hockney and Dame Elizabeth Blackadder have worked with the weavers to produce significant works. This one hundred year old tapestry studio is now 'homed in a beautifully renovated Victorian swimming pool in the heart of Edinburgh.'
As well as housing the tapestry workshops, Dovecot Studios also holds exhibitions. In partnership with Craft Scotland, Dovecot Studios plans to present Selected at the end of the year - a new selling exhibition to celebrate and promote Scottish craft and design.
An international centre for contemporary craft in Scotland, Dovecot is ideally placed to engage buyers, collectors, galleries and makers, and to showcase the diversity and excellence of work being produced in Scotland today. The Selected exhibition will provide audiences with an excellent opportunity to see, buy and collect high quality Scottish contemporary craft.
Dovecot Studios and Craft Scotland are now looking for Scottish makers and designers to take part in Selected. More information and an application for Selected can be found here.
