Tapestry company will revive derelict Edinburgh building
A Festival opening is planned for tapestry specialist Dovecot Studios in the former Victorian baths on Edinburgh’s Infirmary Street. The £5m refurbishment will provide new studios for the tapestry company, as well as three galleries, offices and flats.
Alastair Salvesen, chairman of Dovecot, says: ‘My wife and I were determined to ensure that Dovecot Studios, which was created in 1912, continues to exist with a permanent home. It is our hope that the adjoining exhibition space will assist contemporary art and craft in Scotland.’
Details of the Festival exhibitions will be announced soon.
