This talk will be a mouth-watering and highly descriptive peak of the exhibition with details on how the works are put together using the Kaffe Fassett collective fabrics.

About the speaker

Brandon Mably was raised in a small seaside town on the coast of South Wales. With no formal education in design, Mably made a radical career change from cooking to knitting in the late 1980s after a chance meeting with the world-famous Fassett. From the moment he entered Fassett's studio, Mably realised the creative potential of textile design and soon became Fassett's apprentice.

For more than 30 years Brandon has organised the running of the Kaffe Fassett Studio, where Fassett trained him to knit, needlepoint, hook rag rugs, and create mosaics. An inspiring teacher, Mably began travelling the world with Fassett doing workshops. Since taking over the knit workshops from Fassett, he has taught throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, France, Germany, and the UK.

This is a recording of the online event, Kaffe Fassett Studio: Behind the Scenes with Brandon Mably which originally took place on 19 January 2023 via Microsoft Teams.
