Jennifer Kent is a knitwear designer based in Glasgow. For this exhibition she will present new work developed during a recent residency at Cove Park.
Inspired by the heritage, integrity and expertise found within the Scottish textile industry, Jennifer is particularly interested in the interface between traditional methods and modern textile design.
Jennifer will present work developed during a recent residency at Cove Park. Her research into the traditional geometric designs of Sanquhar knitting patterns underpins a new collection of fashion and interior products. All pieces are manufactured in Scotland, the result of collaborations with knitters based in Sanquhar and Shetland.
Jennifer graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Textile Design (2008) and a Masters in Textiles as Fashion (2010). She worked in New York and London before returning to Scotland in 2013 to launch Edition Scotland, a luxury cashmere accessories brand for men.
The exhibition runs from Friday 2 December 2016 to Sunday 5 February 2017, with a preview on Thursday 1 December from 6pm to 8pm and a pop-up shop on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 December.
