Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh

If you've been to Edinburgh and not found Dovecot Studios then you need to go again.  It's only 10 minutes walk from Waverley Station and well worth a visit. 

When I visited 2 exhibitions were showing in the gallery: Kwang Young Chun - Aggregations and Bernat Klein - A Life in Colour - both on until 26 September 2015.  More of these in later posts ...

After the gallery you can explore Dovecot Tapestry Studio, where hand woven tapestries and gun tufted rugs are made.  You can see which works are underway and view finished pieces.  No photos are allowed in the studio but you might like to see the Stairwell Weave-In ...

and the Glass Onion Tapestry which is a collaboration between Norwegian artist, Magne Furuhomen & the Dovecot Weavers and is inspired by the Beatles lyrics ...

You can also indulge in coffee & cake in the Dovecot Cafe
