Our Linen Stories Exhibition at Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh

16 September 2019 to 25 January 2020

I am delighted to have a copy of a piece from my private collection of linen related items on display as part of the Our Linen Stories exhibition at Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh. A point chart of a damask design produced in Dunfermline in the early 1900s.

The exhibition is a celebration of design in flax fibre and linen and explores Scotland's special relationship with this European textile, with stories gathered from around the country and neighbouring linen nations, Ireland, France, Belgium and The Netherlands.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 12pm to 3pm, Saturdays 10am to 5pm. Free entry.
