• Making The Mallaig Commission

Discover all the behind the scenes insights of making our latest rug commission with Scottish Artist, Jock McFadyen.
This summer Jock McFadyen RA joins a roster of Royal Academicians who have collaborated with Dovecot, with the creation of The Mallaig Commission. This is a sensational exploration of McFadyen's paintings of Mallaig in North West Scotland and draws on Dovecot’s expertise in gun-tufting and colour blending. 

Join the Dovecot experts as they discuss their approach to collaboration and working with artists.

This event supports the Balcony exhibition Jock McFadyen - Lost Boat Party
