• Victoria Crowe: The Large Tree Group Tapestry

Victoria Crowe’s celebrated painting, Large Tree Group (1975), was chosen by Dovecot to be woven into a large tapestry as part of their centenary celebrations in 2012. The Tapestry Studio had previously collaborated with Victoria Crowe in 2007 on Two Views tapestry, which was commissioned by the Duke of Buccleuch. The Large Tree Group Tapestry was completed in 2013 after hundreds of hours of careful work by Dovecot’s Master Weavers. Using only un-dyed wool sourced from around the country, the tapestry was presented at the heart of the Fleece to Fibre: the making of The Large Tree Group Tapestry exhibition.
