The first major London show for 25 years for one of the great practitioners of contemporary craft

American-born colour guru Kaffe Fassett

The exhibition features over 100 works within a dramatic installation designed by exhibition curator Sue Timney. She explains the rationale: 'The exhibition will have a comprehensive drama to it. It will be displayed in a stylised, ordered framework that will hold the richly patterned and colour-filled objects that have been created in Kaffe's long life and work, through his collaboration with Brandon Mably.’

Don't miss

Exhibition highlights include extravagantly coloured nine-foot-wide knitted shawls, coats and throws, patchwork fabric quilts, and a ‘feeling’ wall that allows visitors to touch and better understand the textiles on display and their construction.
