Our guest speaker at this event is Julie Paterson of Cloth.

Julie is a painter, printmaker, designer and owner of cloth, a small & friendly fabric company she set up 17 years ago. Julie designs, and with the help of a small team, produces textiles locally by hand for the home and boutique commercial interiors. Her distinct design style (inspired by the Australian landscape) has seen her develop a large range of interior products, and collaborate with Designer Rugs and Porters Paints.

Cloth have recently opened a new shop and showroom in Surry Hills (we highly recommend a visit!) and the Cloth range now includes bed linen, art, upholstered furniture, clay pieces and much more.

At this first Sydney CWC, Julie will share with us the story of cloth - from its humble beginnings, through to working with a team to grow her vision and business, and insights into her collaborations, love of sustainable materials and practices, marketing and social media use.

After Julie's presentation, join us for afternoon tea.

Seating is limited so be sure to book your tickets early... and Melbourne folk, you are of course invited to come along. I'm sure it will be well worth the trip! :)
