The Viewing Balcony is open to the public daily to view the Weaving Studio below, as well as having a curated and ever changing collection of Dovecot tapestries and rugs around the walls.
Currently on the loom is Alison Watt’s Butterfly, Scottish Opera has commissioned prominent artist Alison Watt to create a new design for a major new tapestry being woven in collaboration with Dovecot weavers. The completed tapestry will hang over sweeping new walls connecting the old Theatre Royal with new foyer spaces currently under construction in Glasgow. The project is being led by Dovecot Master Weaver Naomi Robertson and will be the first full scale tapestry project junior weaver Freya Sewell will have the opportunity to weave following the completion of her 3 year apprenticeship training.
