Follow the thread
If I was going to be in Edinburgh in the next two weeks, I’d head along to what looks like an amazing exhibition as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival. Follow The Thread is a celebration of artists, designers and makers who choose to work with yarn and textiles, and is on at Dovecot Studios until 14 September. Works include this extraordinary hand-tufted rug, ‘Landscape’, designed by Glasgow-based artist Nicolas Party – the ‘wow’ factor only increases when you visualise it at its full size of 2.5 metres x 1.7 metres!
