Dazzle@Dovecot

We are delighted to be returning to Dovecot Studios in Infirmary Street for our Edinburgh Festival exhibition. We have been invited to exhibit in the South Gallery on the ground floor so we are planning an even more exciting exhibition in this large space.This year we have asked our designers to make on or two pieces on a theme, "Follow the Thread". It is a very open brief, so it will be intriguing to see what creations are inspired. We have also , for the first time, invited Japanese printmaker Emiko Aida to exhibit her delicate aquatints. With the wonderful Dovecot Cafe near us on the ground floor, it promises to be a lively Festival venue.
 


Opening times 10.30 to 6.30 seven days a week. Late night opening for English Bank Holiday, 23,24,25 August until 8pm. Bank Holiday Monday 26, until 6.30. There will be an opening party on Thursday 1 August, for invited guests. Exhibition closes 26 August.

Please note the telephone number for Dovecot Studios is 0131 5503660, not as in our invitation. Our direct number for during the exhibition is 07774261682.
