This summer saw the first ever Kaffe Fassett Exhibition in Scotland. It was based in my old hometown of Aberdeen and I knew it was the perfect excuse to head north and take a look. During the period of the exhibition Kaffe Fassett had several talks and workshops planned and I was fortunate enough to get a ticket to one of his evening talks.
It was so lovely to see so many people I knew in the crowd and so many young design students (with knitting patterns in hand) who were enthusiastic about knitting and fabric.
Kaffe's talk was centred around how colour inspires him and the photographs he shared of his travels were fantastic, especially when they were followed by an image of one of his tapestries in the same colour!
One particular standout was a photograph of pebbles on a beach which he had then replicated as a tapestry. It was all in greys and whites and absolutely stunning.
It made me determined to take more photos of the everyday beauty around me and I think in the age of iphones and instagram there is no excuse for me not to do it!
The exhibition opened to the public the following day and I spent an hour walking around admiring all of the stunning tapestries and quilts. I walked round several times to be sure I could take it all in.
As you can tell from the photos, there was so much to see and so much detail involved in each piece. His talent was certainly on show for all to see.
Thanks for stopping by!
