February 6, 2014 - Laura Beresford
A group of creative volunteers led by Rosie Wilks – whose London Road studio with the purple shopfront will be familiar to many Bathonians – have been involved in a fun two-day workshop creating colourful lanterns as props for the forthcoming Kaffe Fassett exhibition.
300 lanterns have been made using a variety of Kaffe Fassett Collective fabric, including some of Kaffe’s designs, as well as those of Philip Jacobs and Brandon Mably. The lanterns will be hung together with brightly coloured pompoms and flat fabric baubles on the monumental Yew tree immediately outside the Exhibition Gallery – a colourful welcome to visitors!
