Aberdeen Art Gallery

This week, I had another visit to Aberdeen Art Gallery, this time to see the exhibition of Kaffe Fassett's extraordinary textiles ... but, sorry to disappoint, only a brief taster of what was on show till I've had time to refind myself after so much time away.

At the top of the stairs to tantalise was his wonderful Leaf Coat (dark), a fantastic contrast in the light from the glass dome,


and a lovely, colourful version of Tumbling Blocks, made from his own fabrics,


and a fantastic needlepoint covered chair with fruit motifs all over it.



Everywhere was a riot of colour - and it made me want to go also to his current exhibition at the American Museum in Bath (running I believe, until the beginning of November ... there's something textile to look forward to ...

  3. I bought a Kaffe Fassett book on needlepoint many years ago and I think it planted the seed in my brain to let rip with stitch. I don't need much of an excuse for a trip to Bath, but now I have the perfect reason.
