Kaffe Fassett at the Welsh Quilt Centre
October 14, 2013 - Kate Hebert
At the end of September I had the pleasure of making a return visit to the Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter. My objective? To check out the exhibition of Kaffe Fassett’s work currently on display there in preparation for our own retrospective exhibition of his work here at the museum next year. Welsh quilts from Jen Jones’ collection have been hung around the walls and Kaffe’s quilts have been suspended from the ceiling in the centre of the gallery. Here are just a few photographs that I took of this bright and colourful exhibition.
The exhibition ‘Kaffe Fassett comes to Wales’ is on display at the Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter until the 2nd November. More information can be found on their website http://www.welshquilts.com/
