A landmark centre for contemporary art, craft and design, Dovecot Studios is built around a leading international tapestry studio in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Founded in 1912, with weavers from William Morris’s workshops, Dovecot Tapestry Studio continues a century-long heritage of collaborating with leading international artists, from Graham Sutherland to Chris Ofili.
Now housed in a renovated Victorian baths building with a café attached, Dovecot seeks to bring the innovative work of contemporary artists and makers to a wider audience.
The gallery offers an exhibitions and events programme for those who share a passion for making and the creative arts.
Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.
