The exhibition will expand the stories behind Dovecot’s collaborations with varied creative outputs from Edward Bawden, John Byrne, Patrick Caulfield, Alasdair Gray and David Poston. These collaborations have produced fine tapestries and rugs for which the Studios are well known and respected.
Dovecot is delighted to be one of the Crafts Councils ‘Materially British’ exhibitors at Design Days Dubai from 18-21 March 2014.
Design Days Dubai is the first fair in the Middle East and South Asia dedicated to collectible and limited edition furniture and design objects.
Dovecot will be showing ‘Monarch of the Glen’ tapestry, a limited edition tapestry made in collaboration with Peter Saville.
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, from the viewing balcony, 12 to 3pm Mon – Sat.
