This residency will support an established designer/maker based in Scotland. Its aim is to provide the artist with the time and space to explore new ideas and ways of working within Cove Park’s international and cross-disciplinary programme. Without the requirement of a final project or presentation, this residency is intended to promote the development of new ideas and work.  Previous residents on this programme include Jude Barber, Emlyn Firth, Jasleen Kaur, Andrew Lamb, Beca Lipscombe, Deirdre Nelson, Frances Priest, Laura Spring.

Lynne MacLachlan is a designer and maker of jewellery and objects based in Glasgow. Lynne’s work focuses on geometry, pattern and colour, creating intriguing optical effects for wearer and viewer. Taking an experimental, hybrid approach to digital tools and hand processes, her pieces are produced in a range of materials.

After a degree in aerospace engineering Lynne studied at Duncan of Jordanstone and the Royal College of Art and holds a PhD from the Open University, where she explored how designer-makers find creative opportunities through tools and applied these strategies to multi-material 3D printing.

Lynne’s award winning work has exhibited widely in the UK, and Europe and America, with the Crafts Council, the Victoria and Albert Museum Dundee, the National Centre for Craft and Design, Craft Scotland and London Design Festival
