Scotland is recognised as one of the most creative and skilled crafts nations in the world and this is reflected in the talent of the group of craft makers being represented at Selected, a new Dovecot selling exhibition open from 30 November – 21 December.
Showing alongside Dovecot’s own tapestry and rug collection Selected features work from over 30 makers who work across a range of disciplines including ceramics, glass, jewellery, silver furniture textiles and wood.
Dovecot and Scottish Opera are working in partnership for the first time. Scottish Opera has commissioned prominent artist Alison Watt to create a new design for a major new tapestry to be woven in collaboration with the Studios. The completed tapestry will hang over sweeping new walls connecting the old Theatre Royal with the new foyer spaces currently under construction in Glasgow. The tapestry can be viewed as a work in progress, on the weaving floor from 30 November
