Episode 15 | Brandon Mably

A chance meeting at a bus stop propelled textile artist Brandon Mably from a career in catering to his life as a designer. Known for his bold and graphic use of color, Mably isn’t content to create by himself; he also shares his colorful talent with his global students. As he puts it, he lives in a world of education and he wants his students to learn to create with color and confidence, just as he did. Listen in as we talk about Mably’s first steps as an artist, his design process, and the most important thing he wants his students to take away from his workshops.


Episode 16 | Kaffe Fassett

Fifty years ago, a trip to Scotland changed the life of artist Kaffe Fassett. Then a painter, Fassett 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 to become renowned for his knitting, needlepoint and fabric designs. Now an iconic textile 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 Fassett about his work as a teacher, his unending drive to create, and those inspiring early years when he first found his calling in textiles.
