Kaffe Fassett exhibition

Last week I went to the Fashion and Textile Museum to see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition


It is incredibly inspiring. I'm a 50/50 fan, some of his work I love, some I'm not so fond of, but I'm completely fascinated by the way he works. 

There are references to painting and ceramics throughout and you can really see the work unfold from the original inspiration.


The quilting was so varied, simple geometric shapes are brought to life with a bold use of colour. 


The exhibition is very rich and you will see some wonderful still life paintings, mosaics, tapestry, knit, quilting, ceramics and of course the inspiration behind so much of his work - nature.

If you get a chance to go you'll definitely be inspired.

  1. I am right with you - half his stuff I love, and half his stuff makes my brain hurt! He has some nice tapestry kits at Ehrman Tapestry x
