A first in Wales
This is the first time ever that the American born artist Kaffe Fassett has exhibited in Wales. He is known for designing exquisite textiles, using colour in an explosive and dramatic fashion. He began with knitwear but has since worked with needlepoint, mosaics, rugmaking and quilting.

In this video Jen Jones guides us through some of the interesting highlights of this unique exhibition and the stories and fabrics behind the making of the quilts.
Kaffe is know for his vivid bold patchworks and if you visit the exhibition you will see how well they are displayed alongside the beautifully stitched antique Welsh quilts from the Jen Jones Collection, which we will be enjoying at a later date.
