Events Programme


Our Linen Stories Edinburgh Tour Monday 16 September 2019 to Saturday 25 January 2020.

Contemporary Designs and Heritage in Linen, gathering all our stories together along the stunning and resonant Tapestry Balcony of Dovecot Studio in Edinburgh

By highlighting our Contemporary Design exhibits and stories offering Object Culture, each month explored wider themes

During one long weekend each month we offered a ‘creative cluster’ of  Talks, Walks and Workshops.

  • Wild Weaving at Summerhall, beginners workshops on a Friday morning at nearby Artiscience Library, Summerhall
  • Weavers Tales at Summerhall, join our guest weavers for an informal early Friday afternoon chat about their practice
  • Exhibition Highlights at Dovecot, join your Curator and guests on Saturday mornings for a deeper dive into contemporary design
  • Walks by Design: Talking Shop, guiding a Saturday stroll out from Dovecot in a 90 minute loop around Edinburgh’s Old Town
