Description

THE EVENT

The team behind the cult magazine Selvedge bring a curated collection of fifty merchants and makers to Edinburgh. The exhibitors sell a range of rare vintage fabrics, covetable haberdashery and skilfully handmade textile treasures. The fair offers the perfect opportunity to meet makers, catch up with old friends and find that special something.

THE VENUE

Having had a slightly nomadic life since its establishment by the 4th Marquess of Bute, in 1912 Dovecot Tapestry Studios moved into Edinburgh’s Infirmary Street Baths in 2006. Built in the late 19th century in response to the cholera outbreak, this building’s restorative history reflects Dovecot’s core principles of preserving traditional craft in a contemporary world.

MAKE A DAY OF IT

Enjoy a guided walk in the historic city centre with our free map. Relax with a cup of tea or a delicious lunch in Leo’s Café. Learn about the history of the Tapestry Studios on a free tour of the weaving floor: meet at 2pm in the Gallery.

GETTING THERE

Dovecot is prominently located on Infirmary Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town, close to the National Museum of Scotland and is a 10 minute walk from Waverley Train Station, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace.
