Tapestries + Rugs
Elaine Wilson joined Dovecot in 2017 as an Apprentice Weaver and in January 2021 she completed her apprenticeship to become a junior weaver.
Alongside her work as a weaver, Elaine also maintains her independent studio practice as a painter since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA (hons) degree in Painting in 2000. She also studied Stitched Textiles and Fashion Design at Edinburgh’s Telford College, and holds an MA in Cultural and Creative Enterprise from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. An abstract painter, Elaine approaches weaving with an interest in creating varied surfaces and experimenting with different mark-making techniques, as well as looking at the use and interaction of colour in order to create interesting and dynamic images.
