  • Tapestry Trailblazer: The Life and Work of Archie Brennan

Archie Brennan is a tapestry weaver, innovator, pioneer and iconoclast, friend to Eduardo Paolozzi and Sean Connery – and possibly the greatest Scottish Pop artist you have never heard of.

Curators Kate Grenyer (Dovecot) and Lisa Mason (National Museums Scotland) set the record straight and invite you to hear move about the 60-year career of a fascinating creative mind, as well as to introduce a new tapestry project inspired by Brennan’s artistic legacy.

Tickets costs £12 (+ booking fee)

Every exhibition ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, tapestry, craft and design in all its forms.
