Cove Park’s programme of Early Career Residencies supports UK-based artists in the process of establishing their careers, providing an opportunity for research and the development of new work at this crucial stage. We are pleased this year to offer four residencies to artists specialising in composition/music, crafts/design, literature and visual art. This year, the visual arts residency has been awarded to Winnie Herbstein.

A graduate of Glasgow School of Art’s Environmental Art department (2014), Winnie works across a range of media, from sculpture and text to drawing and video. This residency will allow her to focus upon her sculptural and wall-based practice and in particular to develop the series ‘Models’ which expands upon skills the artist acquired during a Women In Construction course at the City of Glasgow College (2018).
