Dovecot Studios

10 Infirmary Street | Edinburgh EH1 1LT
Phone: 0131 550 3660

Nestled away in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, these former Victorian Baths are now home to Dovecot – one of the world's leading comtemporary tapestry studios. A unique studio in a unique setting, it works to commission for public and private collectors in collaboration with contemporary artists such as David Hockney, Frank Stella and Henry Moore. The studio's small weaving team is committed to a collaborative process between artist, weaver and commissioner, meaning that every tapestry they create is a beautiful union of all three creative minds.

As well as a permanent home for the tapestry studio, Dovecot offers three gallery spaces which exhibit art, design and craftmanship across a variety of disciplines. The venue can also be hired out for whatever event you please, from corporate meetings to weddings. And, importantly, Dovecot Studios is home to a lovely cafe run by Stag Espresso, where warm drinks come with a hand-knitted cosy. Ah, the draw of a gallery with a cute cafe!
