Well Hello There! Kaffe Fassett Exhibition, Bath.

Hi.....

As some of you may know I went on a little [6 week] trip back to the UK and to be honest I fell off the blog grid. I had all good intentions but I was distracted by the Sussex downs, mums garden, dad's allotment and the bestest of friends. 

But I'm back full of inspiration, fun ideas and a heap of amazing memories. x


I have a few things from the trip I want to share.... firstly was a fabulous exhibition I went to in Bath with my Bristol Kate mate who has the cute dog, Milly.

Kaffe Fasset, an internationally renowned textile artist that has been crowned as ''the king of colour who took on a grey world.'' I think that is rather beautiful and ever so true..

The exhibition is currently on at the American museum in Bath, England. The outside decoration was awesome and I took as many pictures of that as I did inside! So colourful and fun. Pom pom lampshade trees, who wouldn't love that.





Entering was like walking into a kaleidoscope made of fabrics, it was beautiful and mesmerising.I was in awe of all the colour and the sheer body of work itself.

 








There were wall hangings, knitted jumpers, quilts, tapestries, embroidery, cushions and artwork. It was a vast array of technique, style and above all colour.  It was a truly inspiring show of work and I am so happy I was taken to see it, thanks Kate! [And Jenny] xx

 

To top it all off, this is the view from the tea gardens at the museum, absolutely stunning. Bath is awesome and I want to go back...

Happy to be back!

Big Love x
