About Brandon Mably
Raised in a small seaside town on the coast of South Wales, Brandon Mably has been interested in colour and design since he was young. With no formal education in design, Brandon made a radical career change from cooking to knitting in the late 1980s after a chance meeting with the world-famous Kaffe Fassett.
For more than 30 years Brandon has organised the running of the Kaffe Fassett Studio, where Fassett trained him to knit, needlepoint, hook rag rugs, and grout mosaics. An inspiring teacher, Mably began travelling the world with Fassett doing workshops. Exotic locales such as Africa, Iceland, Guatemala, and India filled his designer's eye with inspiration and an explosion of colour and pattern. An avid and enthusiastic teacher, Brandon has learned an important thing over the years - that most people have buried in them a sense of colour and design.
Brandon designs knits for Rowan and Vogue Knitting, and designs patchwork fabrics for FreeSpirit Fabrics as part of the Kaffe Fassett Collective. His tapestry designs are sold by Ehrman Tapestry.
Brandon shares his time between the studio in London and his family home in Hastings.
