Coastal Yarns Hosts Kaffe Fassett Exhibition Event

Coastal Yarns Hosts Kaffe Fassett Exhibition Event

“This fantastic exhibition is touring the country and Coastal Yarns are thrilled to be offered the opportunity to show this unique collection. Our little shop on the Wharf can't do the collection justice so we are grateful to The Castle in Bude for allowing us space for the display in the Castle Heritage Centre.

Admission to The Castle Heritage Centre and the exhibition is free.

Guaranteed to lift your mood as well as encourage you to get knitting - this exhibition focuses on the work of Kaffe Fassett’s classic designs.

In 1988, Kaffe became the first living textile artist to have a one man show at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The exhibition attracted such crowds that the Museum doubled attendance figures during the run and the show proved so popular that it was subsequently converted into an international travelling show, which visited nine countries including Iceland, where 5% of the total population attended.

So, whether you are a colour and pattern addict, are maybe looking for some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing or just want to see these classic vintage garments, don’t miss this exhibition.

Supporting the exhibition, Avril Best - Rowan Design Consultant, will be running three two hour colour workshops over the Bank Holiday weekend in The Castle Blanchminster Room. Booking is essential for these workshops and more details can be found at”
