Archie Brennan

29 June

Archie Brennan began his 60-year weaving career at Dovecot Studios in his home city, Edinburgh. From Australia to Papua New Guinea, he inspired weavers all over the world and became the undisputed master of modern tapestry, as well as a sharp and talented pop artist.

Despite Archie’s huge influence in both the weaving and art world, there has never been a major exhibition of his work. He also won the Mr Scotland title in 1953 and competed for the Mr Universe title.
