I’ve just been enjoying a trip to Bath. On one of the days we visited the Kaffe Fassett exhibition, which was, to me, spectacular. This post is heavy on pics but I simply could not choose what to leave out so please enjoy the feast…
This is the entrance hall, which was very pink like everything else in the exhibition – a riot of colour.
With pictures like these, who needs words? If these pictures have wetted your appetite for more, click here and you can read some more about this interesting designer.
what a delicious post! How I wish I could have seen it in person…my dear cousin lives in Frome so I am sure she was able to go as she is a quilter. Have a question…the hats in the one case..were they knitted and then covered in buttons?
Yes, I think so. Kaffe is principally a knitwear designer. The hats were gorgeous!
I knitted up a couple of his designs (hard work!) a few years ago and recognise some of the patterns. The quilts are spectacular!
Yes, they do look difficult to knit, don’t they; even if you are experienced. Lots of geometric patterns, which I found quite masculine. Suited him though.
Thank you so much for sharing all these great photos, it was almost as if I was there too!
It was a real feast for the eyes Tina and very inspiring as a knitter. One of the walls was touchy, feely so we could look at the back and feel the softness of the yarn. Apparently his stitching work is not all that neat! but I don’t think that matters.
great colors and the best button caps I’ve ever seen, thank you for sharing
Oh, I love these pictures! I have several of his books and have made at least one quilt inspired by -his — a Nine-Patch with many different red prints — such fun.
He’s quite inspirational, isn’t he. I like that he uses the colours he likes and doesn’t worry about too bright, too many, too gaudy or whatever!
Oh what a delight.. so many wonderful creations full of colour and style.. wonderful Oma, thank you, I so enjoyed my trip to the exhibition too through your eyes xxx Sue
