Dovecot Studios

Edinburgh, EH1 1LT

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.
