Beautiful crafts at Dovecot Studios' Selected 2014 exhibition

I was delighted to be asked to take part in a wonderful recent initiative by the lovely people over at Dovecot Studios, a beautiful tapestry studio, cafe and exhibition space housed in an old Victorian baths on Infirmary Street. #MatchedMakers is a fantastic project that matches locals with gorgeous craft pieces to highlight the ways craft makers connect with their audience. 

These pieces are currently on show at Dovecot Studios as part of their fantastic Selected 2014 exhibition, featuring 27 Scottish designers hand-picked for their beautiful and unusual design and crafts.
I was thrilled to be matched with a stunning statement silver necklace by Misun Won, and loved seeing our wee blog Edinburgh Etiquette’s name up on the wall at the exhibition’s opening last Friday. 
There was a gorgeous array of items on display (and available for purchase), ranging from ceramics to textiles to silversmithing. Particular favourites were these striking arrowhead bags and cute cycling-themed pottery.
If you’re sick of the hordes of Princes’ Street shoppers or just looking to do something a little different of a weekend afternoon, then head along to check out Selected2014, on till 21 December. Thanks again to the fabulous team at Dovecot for inviting us to be involved!
