The story of women’s work in both the textile industry and in textile art and tapestry is a complex one and the history of Dovecot intertwines with both. This exhibition will look at the work of key women weavers and artists who have contributed to Dovecot’s history and present. Some key pieces in tapestry will be shown alongside work by contemporary women artists who are exploring the history and cultural identity of women expressed in their work in textile.
