Dovecot Studios Competition

Dovecot is a landmark centre for contemporary art, craft and design built around a leading international tapestry studio. Occupying an extraordinary building in the heart of Edinburgh, Dovecot works to programme, commission and produce exhibitions and events for audiences and clients who share a passion for making and the creative arts.

This unique venue offers more than just a space; it is an environment with a creative backdrop and intriguing history which provokes thought and inspires visitors. A rich array of tapestry projects, collaborations and partnerships have come to fruition in this beautifully restored Victorian swimming baths building since Dovecot Tapestry Studio was rehoused here in 2008.
