Dovecot Studios and Scottish artist Barbara Rae CBE RA have worked together for over 25 years to create 12 rugs and tapestries. To celebrate this creative partnership, Dovecot weavers have created a new tapestry inspired by Rae’s exploration of the Northwest Passage in the Arctic region.

Discover the creative process and partnership between Dovecot and Rae including the making of this new tapestry Peel Sound Ice, and two gun-tufted rugs displayed for the first time created in response to the artists’ travels to the Painted Desert Arizona.
