Kaffe Fassett - Colour Magic in Bath

I'm a huge fan of Kaffe Fassett and have been very fortunate in meeting him and his partner Brandon Mably on several occasions. They are as lovely and as passionate about colour as they appear to be.

A few years ago I was involved in the setting up of an exhibition of Kaffe's work at Charleston Farmhouse. It was a tiny event compared to his current show at the American Museum in Bath. It was however very well attended and seemed to have a tremendous impact on all the visitors.

I find his work and use of colour so uplifting and stimulating in a way I have never experienced with any other artist or maker. He really does have a gift for putting colours together and using them in such a creative way.

If like me you are passionate about yarn, textiles, craft, art or/and colour, try and get to this exhibition. It has a long run, thankfully, as it gives us all a good chance of getting there before it is over.

Welcome to my latest Google Friend Connect followers. Sue, Dawn, & CCP. I'm super pleased that more of you lovely bloggers are linking up with me.


  1. I met Kaffe Fasset a few times, I agree a really talented man, his knitting is lovely I have a few books of his from when he was into machine knitting, a real inspiration.

  2. Thanks for the welcome and for the heads up about the Kaffe Fasset exhibition. I have been meaning to go to the American Museum for ages, I love his quilts and have been thinking about making one for myself. So a visit to his exhibition is just what I need to get inspired.

  3. Kaffe Fassett's appearance on the craft scene exactly coincides with my interesting in making things - he's always been an inspiration to me. I've never met him but know two people who have worked with him. Is it a small world or do you & your followers move in small, colourful circles? (A bit like a Kaffe creation.)
