Direct from London Craft Week, Dovecot presents a display of embroidered postcards by textile designer Laura Lees. Depicting modernist architecture from the Royal Commonwealth Pool to the University of Edinburgh, journey to the cityâ€™s modernist icons through the medium of embroidery.
Coinciding with our current exhibition, Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant, Pinboard: Postcards from Edinburgh is an ongoing project that rekindles Leesâ€™ relationship with her home city, while also celebrating Scotlandâ€™s mid-century architectural gems. View Edinburgh from a new perspective and marvel at these unique embroidered vignettes.
