DOVECOT STUDIOS, A RICH TAPESTRY
This fascinating video about Dovecot Studios gives you an insight into the practice of tapestry weaving in a commercial tapestry studio. Weavers Douglas Grierson and Jonathan Cleaver provide perspectives on the history and current state of tapestry weaving while discussing their own background in tapestry. Dovecot director David Weir talks about the Edinburgh studio's illustrious past. The Dovecot will celebrate its 100Th anniversary in 2012. There was talk at the Symposium in Canberra last year that there may be an International Tapestry Symposium organized to coincide with their anniversary.
