Emerging Designer/Maker 2016
16 May 2016 - 12 June 2016
With this one-month residency Cove Park aims to provide designers and makers based in Scotland with the support required to develop new work at a crucial stage in their careers.
Jennifer Kent is a knitwear designer inspired by the heritage, integrity and expertise found within the Scottish textiles industry, and is particularly interested in how interactions from the past can contribute to modern textiles to create something completely new.
She intends to use her month long residency to research and develop new work based on translating historical knitwear patterns into new designs that sit comfortably within a contemporary context.
