Our speakers at October Creative Talks were Jess Wright, Emma Byrnes and Lara Davies, collectively known as Harvest Textiles (harvesttextiles.com.au)

Harvest Textiles produces a range of hand screen-printed clothing, homewares and accessories which is all designed and printed on their 10 meter print table, using organic, recycled or locally produced fabrics where possible to reduce their environmental impact. They are passionate about creating products that are not mass produced and instead hand make all their product.

They are also compelled to impart these skills to other like-minded people in the community. From their studio, Harvest Workroom in East Brunswick, Melbourne, they run screen-printing and textile workshops, host guest talks, seminars, exhibitions, pop-up shops and collaborate with other designers on dynamic projects with a communal focus.

Renew Newcastle presents Creative Talks, a series of breakfast lectures by people who have made a living from their creativity. Taking place on the first Friday morning of the month for three months (beginning September 2012) a well-regarded creative will be invited to speak for 20 minutes about the lessons they have learned growing their art into a commercial success. This is followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with local creatives from a wide range of backgrounds. Attendance is free and breakfast is provided. Meet, greet and eat at Creative Talks.
