WORLD fa­mous de­signer Kaffe Fas­sett MBE will share his in­spi­ra­tion in a lec­ture and work­shops tak­ing place in New­town­moun­tkennedy from March 4 to March 6.

Ap­ple Tree Crafts Quilt Shop will wel­come the Turner medal win­ner to the Parkview Ho­tel, New­town­moun­tkennedy.

Fresh from an ap­pear­ance at New York Fash­ion Week, in which he col­lab­o­rated with fa­mous fash­ion house Coach, Kaffe will bring an el­e­ment of laid back glam­our and high in­ten­sity colour to his Ir­ish fans.

Kaffe will be ac­com­pa­nied by fel­low de­signer Bran­don Mably, him­self an ac­com­plished and well re­garded de­signer, in the Parkview Ho­tel where he will pass on his knowl­edge of colour and give in­sights into how he cre­ates the glo­ri­ous large bright de­signs that made him fa­mous.

You can hear Kaffe dis­cuss his colour pro­cesses at his lec­ture on ‘Colour and In­spi­ra­tion’ on Mon­day, March 4 at 7 p.m.. Tick­ets cost €30.

You can also en­joy hands on tu­ition at one or both of his patch­work work­shops, ‘Green Di­a­monds’ on Tues­day, March 5 and ‘Mediter­ranean Hexagons’ on Wed­nes­day, March 6. Tick­ets are €155 per work­shop. All tick­ets are avail­able from Ap­ple Tree Crafts.

Kaffe teaches in­di­vid­u­als all over the world to learn to work with colour in an in­stinc­tive way. His unique sense of colour, drive to create, and his de­sire to en­cour­age oth­ers, has led to his rep­u­ta­tion as a guru in the world of colour and tex­tiles. This is a once in a life­time op­por­tu­nity for many fans of fash­ion, de­sign, tex­tiles and colour to meet a modern icon.

Kaffe is the first liv­ing artist to have been hon­oured with a per­ma­nent ex­hibit in the world fa­mous V&A museum in Lon­don. His unique gar­ments have been com­mis­sioned and col­lected by many fa­mous fash­ion icons and he has worked with Bri­tish Vogue, Mis­soni and David Bai­ley.
