This two-month residency aims to support a Scottish emerging or established designer/maker. It provides 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 Catherine Aitken, Deirdre Nelson, Frances Priest, Laura Spring and Dawn Youll.

Beca Lipscombe is an Edinburgh based printmaker and textile designer. Working both independently as a designer and collaboratively as part of the company Atelier EB, Lipscombe’s practice is concerned with the exploration and definition of an indigineous Scottish aesthetic through hand and industrial craft production.

She intends to use her time at Cove Park to disseminate research material collected with a view to making new work.
