WE THE MAKERS is a new biennial design festival from the National Wool Museum showcasing the work of artists, designers and makers.

In 2020, we present the Designer Showcase, featuring the work of 21 professional and emerging fashion designers from across Australia and around the world. Designers were called upon to design a look that responded to the festival theme – Design for the future: sustainable and ethical textiles and fashion.
