I cannot get enough of Kaffe Fassett these days. The wit and wisdom from this legendary artist is ringing around in my head all the time.
Just when I need it most, Melanie Falick saves the day and brings us a brand-new, fantastic conversation with Kaffe and his niece, the artist Erin Lee Gafill. It’s the latest episode in Melanie’s video series, Making a Life: The Conversation.
That’s the whole conversation up top. What’s really fun here is that Erin, an artist herself, talks us through how she makes holiday cards. If you happen to have some decorative paper and glue on hand, definitely join in and make a card while you listen.
Or, as I did, work on your Kaffe Fassett knitting while listening to Kaffe Fassett. That’s pretty sublime as well.
Melanie’s free conversations with makers are proving to be a hot ticket. It all flows from her exquisite book, Making a Life: Working by Hand and Discovering the Life You’re Meant to Live. Follow her on Instagram to keep up with upcoming conversations.
Holidays are coming! Hope you’re all finding time to bake something, decorate something, sneak in a decent nap.
