I have mentioned Harvest Textiles before, but every time I see one of their amazing fabric items I get hooked all over again. The Melbourne based shop/workshop offers a wide arrange of items in their shop and here are just some of my favorites! Harvest Textiles also have an amazing workshop facilities where you can learn more about things like, screen-printing, softie making workshops, kid's workshops etc. Check out their classes here. They also have a really exciting new fabric design program for young designers (free!!) Check out the details below.
Harvest Textiles are very excited to be the recipients of a grant from the City of Melbourne to run a free 2 week intensive program at Signal for 15 - 18 year olds called "Futuremakers".
Participants will design, produce, promote and present a small range of hand printed products alongside Harvest Textiles who look forward to facilitating young textile designers that are brimming with fresh ideas to execute them.
The program will be held in the July school holidays and will run for 10 days.
Week 1: 3rd - 7th July and Week 2: 10th - 14th July.
If you are an up and coming textiles talent that might be interested in joining this exciting venture get in touch with Signal asap. Alternatively you can contact Harvest Textiles.
Bookings will open in the next few weeks and it is a first come first served basis.
Please alert anyone who you think might be interested in this program.
