• Collaborate! 21st Century Commissions and Creations part I
    Dovecot Studios
    Jim Lambie - Soft Machine

Explore the creative process behind some of Dovecot's recent creative rug collaborations. In 2008, Dovecot Studios moved to its present home in Infirmary Street. Since then, Dovecot's weaving team have continued to create tufted rugs which have changed the landscape of textile art and design, redefining the art of the possible. 

Collaborate! showcases some of Dovecot's most innovative creations, allowing you to explore the nature of collaboration and the relationship between artist and tufter. 

Featuring works tufted in collaboration with international artists and designers such as Jim Lambie, Jock McFadyen and Jamie Bruski Tetsill, the exhibition might inspire you to start your own collaboration with Dovecot.
