016 - Kaffe Fassett
Fifty years ago, a trip to Scotland changed the life course of now iconic textile artist Kaffe Fassett. Then a painter, Kaffe was mesmerized by the heathered colors of Scottish yarn and taught himself how to knit on the train ride back to London. Since then he has immersed himself in the world of textiles and becoming renowned for his knitting, needlepoint and fabric designs. As an artist, he doesn’t just spend all his time in his studio. He also travels the globe teaching and encouraging his students in their own textile work. In this episode we chat with Kaffe about his work as a teacher, his unending drive to create, and those inspiring first years when Kaffe found his calling in textiles.
