Want to learn to weave in one of the world’s leading tapestry studios?

This tapestry weaving experience day at Dovecot Studios, the only operating tapestry studio in Scotland, is a rare chance to learn the art of tapestry weaving in our stunning studio, which is normally reserved for Dovecot weavers.

Aimed at absolute beginners, the workshop will introduce traditional materials of a cotton warp and wool weft, as well as the basic skills involved in creating a woven tapestry. Experimenting with a range of techniques, you will receive expert tuition from professional weaver Fiona Hutchison, and at the end of the day you are invited to sit back and admire your tapestry with a glass of fizz.

All materials are included.
