This six-week residency supports an emerging or established designer/maker based in Scotland.  The 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 for solutions or end results, this period is intended to encourage the possibilities for future work.

Laura Spring is a Glasgow based designer who, after working in a business partnership for a number of years, is currently embarking on an independent practice. Since graduating from Glasgow School of art in 2002, she has developed her practice in printed textiles, working predominantly in the areas of fashion and interiors.

At a very transitional stage in her career, she will use her time at Cove Park to explore experimental printing techniques, researching and developing a new range of work and engaging with artists working in other disciplines to explore a wider context for her practice.
