KAFFE FASSETT EXHIBITION hosted by Coastalyarns

Sunday 30th April to Tuesday 2nd May 

This fantastic Kaffe Fassett exhibition is touring the country and we’re delighted to be able to work with Coastalyarns to host this simply amazing unique collection.

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

Entry to the exhibition is free.
