Louise Trotter

Louise Trotter is a Master Weaver and Rug Tufter at Dovecot Studios. 

Louise graduated from Duncan Jordanstone College of Art and Design Dundee in 1999 with a degree in Constructed textiles, specialising in Tapestry. Previously, Louise worked for the West Dean Tapestry Studio and later aided the recreation of the ‘The Hunt of The Unicorn’ tapestry hung at Stirling Castle.

In 2015, Louise joined the Dovecot weaving team and expanded her artistry to rug-tufting. There have been various projects Louise has worked on since joining Dovecot, including ‘The Caged Bird’s Song‘ tapestry created in collaboration with Chris Ofili, ‘I’m Fine / Save Mi’ rugs with Rachel MacLean and Victora Crowe’s ‘Orcadian Series: Above Stromness‘ rug.
