  2. 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.

  3. Kate Banazi was born in London. Heavily influenced by her parents, both typographers, designers and keen makers of things, she studied menswear fashion design at Central St Martins, before moving into silkscreen printing and illustration. Kate moved to Sydney in 2006 with her husband and young son before signing with the Jacky Winter Group and setting up her own studio.

    Alongside commercial jobs and private commissions, she especially enjoys collaborations with others outside her field and is currently working with the research of a microbiologist. Fascinated by the sciences and space travel, she often uses reference to these subjects in her personal pieces and will sneak them in wherever she can in her commissioned work.

    Her background in fashion and textiles is often referenced with strong use of colour and bold graphic imagery and led to her most recent collaborations with furniture designers Koskela and fashion designer Dion Lee.
