Glorious Colour with Kaffe Fassett
The Glorious Colour lecture with Kaffe Fassett is designed to inspire and motivate. The presentation highlights works from his latest projects, including his patchwork quilt, fabric, needlepoint, mosaic, painting and knitting designs. A tremendous amount of Kaffe's inspiration comes from his continual travels, and his lecture is designed not so much to instruct but to empower and inspire the audience to create and develop their "mind's eye." Audiences leave invigorated - entranced by Kaffe's sense and use of colour; they are ready to try it themselves and are encouraged to do so. The slide show lasts approximately one hour followed by a question and answer session and book signing. Brandon Mably, a fabric designer and Kaffe's studio Manager, will start of the lecture.

*SOLD OUT* Mediterranean Hexagons Quilt Workshop with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably
Featured in Kaffe Fassett Quilts in Morocco, we have taken a traditional snowball and made it fabulous simply by the use of colour. This quilt is a study in using variations on a single colour.

Keep this in mind when choosing colours: find your colour and don’t stray too far from it, keep your choices harmonious. For example, if your colour theme is RED, bring reds, oranges, reddish purples, magenta, warm brown etc. Our original version is a study in blues and includes purples and greens.

In the original, a limited selection of shot cottons were used for the points. We have more fun by using strong graphic prints: large dots, fruit prints, stylised flowers, in 2 or 3 colours.

This work best with a colourway that is different to your Hexagons so it frames and sets them off. Civil War prints can also be great here or black and white prints, stripes and zig zags too: the bolder the better! Be chancy and have fun with these, or wait until class to get advice from Kaffe and Brandon.

This is a class suitable for beginners who already know how to sew a seam and how to use a rotary cutter. It is also for more advanced quiltmakers who wish to concentrate on complex colour development.
