Kaffe Fassett: Creative inspirations

This Kaffe Fassett lecture is designed to inspire and motivate. Kaffe’s presentation highlights work from his latest projects and collaborations, including his patchwork, fabric, needlepoint, mosaics, painting and knitting designs. Kaffe’s inspiration comes from his travels throughout the world.

His lecture is designed not so much to instruct but to empower and inspire the audience to create and develop their ‘mind’s eye’. You will leave invigorated, entranced by Kaffe’s sense and use of colour, ready to try it.
