Following a two year refurbishment of Edinburgh’s oldest public baths Dovecot is now home to Dovecot Studios, one of the world’s leading contemporary tapestry studios and an international centre for tapestry as a modern art form since 1912. Dovecot champions art, design and craftsmanship at the very highest level and across creative disciplines.
While tapestry weaving and collaborations with international artists and designers remain at its heart, the building incorporates three museum quality exhibition galleries and flexible events space, two commercial offices and five residential apartments. Dovecot is also home to IC: Innovative Craft.
A programme of exhibitions and activites runs throughout the yar in the ground floor galleries, alongside events hire and gallery rental, studio visits and guided tours. These exhibitions aim to showcase high-quality art, craft and design from Scotland and beyond in a thought-provoking and original manner. Our gallery shop stocks books and merchandie relating to these exhibitions.
