We teamed up with photographer Harry Were and interviewed some of our favourite creative girls to see what they are up to.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR STUDY/PRACTICE?
I’m studying Textile Design at AUT University and absolutely love it; we have such great facilities especially for textiles with the digital printer and different types of knitting machines. I’m in my third and final year and have been mainly working on the Shima Seiki knitting machine, making jacquard fabrics but I’m planning on making knitted garments for my major end of year assignment.
WHAT ARTISTS/DESIGNERS ARE YOU INSPIRED BY?
Hermine Van Dijck is one of my favourites! She is a textile designer from Antwerp, Belgium. She makes the most beautiful weavings.
