Kaffe Fassett Exhibition



Hello, I hope you had a good Easter.  I decided yesterday to take myself off to London to visit the Kaffe Fassett Exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum. (I was going to add a link here but the website seems to be down today!)
If you're a fan of his colourful style then it's well worth a trip.  It was wonderful to see lots of the quilts that I've admired in his books, along with tapestries, knitting, rugs, paintings and mosaics.  A real feast for the eyes!
It was very difficult to photograph,  being very dark, with flash not allowed, but I put my little camera on "museum" setting and hoped for the best.  Some of the pictures are pretty wobbly, but it gives you the idea.



















Well worth a trip if you're not too far away.  
Despite the freezing wind it was lovely and sunny so I decided to wander back to the train via Bankside, (along with seemingly thousands of tourists!)  More London photos to come tomorrow :)

  6. I was lucky to be able to go on the opening day as I 'just happened' to be in London for a few days! The exhibition is fabulous, an explosion of colour - I was very impressed and it is well worth a visit. I have many similar photos to you, but have not been able to put them on my blog yet as unfortunately a cup of tea and my laptop met, and said lap top is away being repaired :(

  9. That looks like a great exhibition. I have a few Kaffe tapestry books - he is just brilliant with colour combination. Thanks for pointing out that my posts are not updating. Don't know how I'll sort it out - I just hope people will still visit!

    Wow! All those pieces together really do pack a punch! I've never been the hugest Kaffe Fasset fan - his work just isn't my kind of thing - but you have to admire his talent!
