The other place is the Dovecot Studios. This year is the centenary year of the tapestry workshop and to celebrate the event they have an exhibition called "Weaving the Century 1912-2012". The show begins with work heavily influenced by William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement. Gradually you can see the scope of work broadening and the collaboration between contemporary artist and weaver developing. Artist include Elizabeth Blackadder, Peter Blake, David Hockney, Eduado Paolozzi, Edward Wadsworth, Graham Sutherland and John Bellany. An added bonus to visiting the gallery is that you can stand on a viewing floor and watch the weavers working below.
