UK Crafts Residency 1, 2012
28 May 2012 - 06 July 2012
This six-week residency supports an established maker/designer at a key stage in their career. It enables the artist to undertake research, explore new ideas and make significant developments in their practice within the context of Cove Park’s international and cross-disciplinary programme.
Previous residents on this programme include Joe Pipal, Pottinger and Cole and Lucian Taylor.
Charlotte Linton is a textile and fashion designer based in London. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2009, she has developer her own line of printed scarves, while producing prints and collections of clothes for large designer brands.
Scarves produced by Linton have a strong visual identity that is largely illustrative, colourful and suggestive of an ongoing narrative. Each collection is based on research into a particular geographical region, focusing on the relationship between nature and culture in that area. At Cove Park Linton will expand her research into the British Isles and visit islands such as Skye, Bute and Lewis. She also aims to develop her production and explore means to manufacture in Scotland.
