This challenge is inspired by our trip to Mottisfont Abbey where Kaffe Fassett exhibited over 70 glorious items including furniture fabric, clothing and wall hangings.
“I create in palettes of colour because that is my main obsession.” Kaffe Fassett
We were allowed to take photographs of Kaffe’s work at the exhibition – this is one of his wall hangings …
…and a close up of another.
Please click on the link below, scroll down a little, and you will come to a very short video of Kaffe Fassett talking about and showing some of his work.
So this quarter’s challenge is to make a “colourscape” using whatever fibre media you enjoy working with. It can be realistic or abstract and any shape or form.
Go wild with this challenge and be as free as you like!
We often use our photos to inspire us, so we’d like to share some with you.

We hope that you enjoy this challenge and that it brightens this quarter of the year.
