If it is difficult to find a use for a redundant church, it must also be a problem to find a use for redundant swimming baths, but this has happened in Infirmary Street, Edinburgh. The
premises are now the Dovecot Tapestry Studio, and we will go there on Thursday 27th September with the coach leaving Broxden Park & Ride at 10.00am.
We will have tea/coffee on arrival and an introduction to the transformation project. The viewing gallery is open to the public and it is possible to see the weavers at work as well as looking at information panels. Some of the tapestries in St John’s Kirk have links with those in the Dovecot Studio.
The cost will be £15 a head.
You will be left to your own devices for lunch, but there are several eating places nearby, including the Bistro at the Royal Scottish Museum in Chamber Street.
There is a separate exhibition at the Tapestry Studio - Liberty, Art Fabrics and Fashions. The group would get a reduced price of £7. If you would like to see this, please bring the cash with you and we will organise tickets on the day.
