• Drawing at Dovecot

Draw, doodle, and create your own works of art in the inspiring surroundings of Dovecot Studios.

With exclusive access to Dovecot’s Tapestry Studio Viewing Balcony, spark your creativity in one of Edinburgh’s most interesting galleries. Drawing inspiration from the Victorian architecture of our tapestry studio, or the work of the weavers themselves, draw, sketch and take a creative moment for yourself.

The space is inspiring, bright and most importantly safe. Dovecot have implemented many safety measures including sanitising stations, distancing markers, and limited ticketing. Seating and clipboards will be provided, and we ask that you bring your own drawing equipment.


Free entry, spaces must be booked in advance.
Mon-Fri 11:00am – 12:00pm


Various safety measures are in place for this event including socially-distanced workstations, sanitised equipment, and adhering to Track and Trace. If you have any questions please contact us.
