About the hosts
This year we've invited talented artists Penny Ferguson of Min Pin, Esther Sandler of Togetherness Design and textile designer Tara Whalley to create a kids play area with an Australian outback theme featuring cardboard-cut-out photo booths, magical murals, and free art activities.
Penny Ferguson is a designer and illustrator originally from Perth. When she's not drawing and painting she makes fine jewellery, ceramics and textiles for her label Min Pin.
While studying textile design in Melbourne in 2011, Esther Sandler started Togetherness Design as a way of exploring making products for the everyday with a focus on craft techniques, print and pattern.
Tara Whalley is a Melbourne based textile designer known for her eye catching prints. Tara's fashion collections feature her own gouache paintings of favourite plants and keepsakes, alongside illustrations of dear friends.
