Kaffe Fassett is one of the most successful artists and designers working in contemporary craft today. His career spans over 50 years with a prolific oeuvre that encompasses knitting, needlepoint, mosaic, quilting, textile design, painting and drawing. His books and projects have encouraged millions to make and to create.

Kaffe Fassett’s inspiration comes from everything around him; his inimitable eye can translate the most everyday of details into the base for one of his colourful, sophisticated maximalist designs. Kaffe and the Kaffe Fassett Collective textile designs are used and interpreted by quilters around the globe. The exhibition will feature works from international quilters and makers.

Kaffe Fassett: The Power of Pattern will explore Fassett’s world, drawing on original artworks from invited makers as well as Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably, textiles works, photographs and archival material to illuminate the work of this distinctive, influential artist and designer.
