Since 1912, Dovecot have been weaving tapestries and rugs with creative flair and superior craftsmanship. See for yourself how they collaborate with international artists to realise their designs. This guided tour gives visitors the opportunity to go behind the scenes and witness life in a working tapestry studio. Led by one of Dovecot Tapestry Studio’s weavers, you will have the chance to watch the weavers in action, get a glimpse of their gestures, and age-old techniques, as well as ask all about your guide’s personal experience in the studio. Held on the Tapestry Studio viewing balcony, find out all about the incredible art of tapestry and rug making.
