Dazzle@Dovecot

Our fifth year at our favourite venue on Infimary Street, upstairs in the Ladies Baths. Last year the coming together of all the Festivals created a buzzing atmosphere in Edinburgh which we also experienced at Dovecot. The Dovecot Cafe remains one of the best places in the city for coffee and delicious cakes. There will be lots of new designers and sumptuous silk scarves by Ekta Kaul.

EDINBURGH-Our City by henni.photo

 

henni.photo brings together Lynn Henni who has studied photography and film-making and Paul Henni who has a background as a freelance designer and sculptor. Their interest in urban imagery combined with a lifetime of living in and exploring their home city of Edinburgh brings a unique perspective to this beautiful and multi-faceted place. Sometimes gritty, often unexpected, their images present an insider’s perspective on the city.

Ekta Kaul

Ekta Kaul is an award winning textile designer based in London. Her textiles celebrate a pared down aesthetic, simplicity & timeless style. Sumptuous silks, fine wools & soft cashmeres are embroidered, hand-dyed and printed in simple graphic compositions using time-honoured methods. Ekta creates bespoke quilts based on city maps & small editions of scarves in bold colours. Ekta's Multiway scarves are designed in such a way that they can be draped in multiple ways by using the silk buttons and loops, allowing the wearer to create an individual look.
