Events Programme

Our Events programme is open for registration via Eventbrite 

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

  • Continuing our series established in 2014, join in the debate with two new Twilight Talks about Design, Thursday evenings at Dovecot
  • Introducing our new Wild Weaving workshops, let your creative energies flow on a Friday morning at nearby Artiscience Library, Summerhall
  • Exploring their own Weavers Tales, join our Summerhall guest weavers for an informal early afternoon chat about their practice
  • Join your Curator and Featured Designers on Saturday mornings for Design Focus at Dovecot, a deeper dive into material, process and product
  • Continuing our series of Walks by Design, we’ll be guiding a stroll out from Dovecot on Saturday afternoons in a 90 minute loop around the Old Town
