• Contemporary Craft & Design Fair

This summer, Dovecot Studios presents Contemporary Craft & Design Fair, featuring 24+ designers and makers, this is a chance to support the local creative economy and pick up textiles, homeware, skincare, jewellery, accessories, and gifts. 

Taking place in our airy spaces; the Tapestry Studio Viewing Balcony and Ladies Baths, visitors will be able to safely browse the work of contemporary makers.

Committed to showcasing the best in contemporary art, craft, and design, Dovecot are delighted to provide a platform for the creative industry.
