Who: Lauren Emerson and Genevieve Hewson of Walter G
What: Textile designers

What: Wood carver of bespoke crochet hooks
Why: A city farm, a shed oasis, a handmade craft, an escape from hustle and bustle and those chooks!

Who: Grace Wood
What: Wool artist
Where: Blue Mountains, west of Sydney
Why: Woolly fleeces, soft heavenly mounds of natural wool in every state - raw fleece, dye bath, thick fibres. The gentle rhythm and awe-inspiring setting of the Blue Mountains.
We love: The myriad shapes and colours Grace creates with felted Australian merino wool from her family's farm.

Who: Hannah Fox
Where: At the bottom of the garden in her Melbourne home
Why: A secret artist's world exists away from the Hannah's home but close enough for a healthy work/life/creative balance
We love: The paint splatters on Hannah's shoes, her incredible landscapes, the presence of flowers as subjects in her studio, solitude in the city.
