Common threads of colour and shape Material world: International fabric and textile craft designer Kaffe Fassett, right, and his design partner Brandon Mably at a book signing at Riverhead's All Things Patchwork store. Colour confidence: Participants at a fabric and textile craft workshop in Riverhead explore their creativity. Patchwork quilt enthusiasts have been inspired by colour and creativity at workshops. They were held at Riverhead Hall by international fabric and textile craft designer Kaffe Fas- sett and his design partner Bran- don Mably. The pair began with a book signing at the Riverhead patch- work store All Things Patchwork as part of a tour of the North Island. Owner Cheryl Houston is a fan of Kaffe and stocks a large range of the collective fabrics. Geoff and Jean Hope of Fabco organised the tour as the New Zealand distributors for the Kaffe Collective. Kaffe enjoys how people can share their own and others' creativity in workshops. Brandon and I are thrilled to be part of that experience. At the end of each workshop we all take a look at each other's work, and I provide a critique. That is when it pays dividends. People not only see what they can do but what all those round them have done.'' Initially a painter at art school, he soon moved into the textiles scene and now paints with fabrics and wools. He teamed up with Brandon, who plays an integral role in Kaffe's workshops and his design. Along with travelling and teaching workshops, Kaffe and Brandon make quilt designs and fabric ranges, needlepoint de- signs, Kaffe's signature richly pat- terned knitting patterns, private commissions and exhibitions. Kaffe says amidst this diversity, the common threads are colour and shape. Colour is my medium. It's all about colour, manipulating it, moving it round.''
